Camping Tour in Ishkhanasar & Ukhtasar mountains
Are you a serious camper? Alternatively, are you a wannabe camper? Have you ever considered camping in the grounds of an ancient monastery, on a plateau, overlooking a huge chasm, or inside one of the world’s largest extinct volcanic craters? Have you ever dreamed of seeing with your own eyes the settlements of primitive man or treading the impassable tracks of the Silk Road?
