DESCRIPTION

The Red Sands is one of the greatest deserts of Central Asia.

The place is rich in flora and fauna: among saxaul and wild tulips there are turtles, snakes, foxes and even antelopes. Moreover, in the middle of the desert, there is a large, drainage-free lake Aidarkul, which provides a wonderful habitat for many fish and birds.
