  • We pick you up from your place in Khiva or Urgench with our driver and start the Daytrip. You can start the Daytrip at any time of the day. It is recommended to start the trip in the morning after breakfast around 08:00 – 09:00 am. It takes about 90 minutes to drive from Khiva to the first fortress – Dumon Kala.
    Dumon Kala has an unusual shape. It is composed of three adjacent sections – a square-shaped western enclosure with corner towers; a smaller square-shaped citadel on the eastern side; and an irregular four-sided northern enclosure, the remains of which can no longer been seen.
    Guldursun Kala is the next fortress to visit. It is a fortified town. The exterior walls and towers date to the 12th century CE. Much ancient and medieval pottery and many bronze items and coins were found within the site during archaeological excavations. The coins indicate that the last period of occupation is related to the year 1220, during the rule of Muhammad Khorezmshah and the time of the Mongol invasion of Khorezm.
    After visiting Guldursun Kala it is about 4-5 hours to drive from Guldursun Kala to Bukhara through Kizilkum Desert.
