Aral Sea Tour To Uzbekistan
A beautiful travel Aral Sea Tour is very different from everything else you can find. The tour takes you to know ARAL LAKE in person.
Aral Sea – Lake
The Aral Sea is the largest closed lake in Central Asia. Administratively, more than half of the Aral Sea is located in southwestern Uzbekistan (Karakalpakstan) and northeastern Kazakhstan.
The drying up of the sea has somewhat affected the climate of the region directly adjacent to the former sea water area (at a distance of up to 100 km from the former coast), which has become more continental: the summers have become drier and warmer, colder and longer winters.
Now the authorities of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan are looking for different ways to solve this ecological problem.
