Best Time To Travel To Turkmenistan
We recommend traveling to Turkmenistan anytime in their spring and autumn seasons from March to May and mid-September to October as the summers are extremely sweltering, especially in the desert. We definitely recommend you to also visit the desert or even make a camping trip there, and the Darvaza Gas Crater, also known as the Gate of Hell, is not to be missed! Other activities to enjoy in Turkmenistan are hiking in the colorful Yangikala Canyon, exploring old bazaars, celebrating the coming of spring with Nowruz Day, or visiting the Köw Ata underground lake.
Turkmenistan has no busy season and is often free of crowds.
