What are the most spectacular roads in Turkmenistan?

Turkmenistan is a landlocked country located in the central part of Asia. It covers an area of 491,210 square kilometers and shares borders with Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan and Iran. The country is mostly (80%) covered by the Karakum Desert. When travelling to the country, you must remain vigilant, as acts of banditry occur in remote areas. So it’s recommended not to travel alone and ensure that your personal belongings, passports and other travel documents are secure.

With hundreds of small and unpaved roads through the desert and the mountains, when travelling to Turkmenistan it’s a must-visit the Darvaza Gas Crater, in the Ahal Province.
It is often referred to as the "Door to Hell" or "Gates of Hell". Found in the Karakum Desert, this intriguing site has been burning continuously for almost fifty years. It’s also possible to drive along remnants of ancient caravanserais, important points of the historic Silk Road. Don’t forget the country has a cold desert climate that is severely continental, so plan carefully when to drive there.
