Sleep next to the 'Door to Hell' in Central Asia on a new photography tour

This new tour will see photographers of all abilities carted across the unique, awe-inspiring and sometimes dangerous sights of Central Asia. The main attraction is a chance to camp next to the infamous ‘Doors to Hell’.

Organised by professional photographer Richard l’Anson, the tour is designed to give all abilities the chance to get creative and improve their skills while being guided around some of the highlights that Central Asia has to offer.

The tour will be run by World Expeditions, starting in Tashkent. From there, travellers will visit Uzbekistan’s magical public square, the summer Palace of Bukhara and the ancient city of Khiva. Moving on to Turkmenistan, where the infamous Darvaza Gas Crater lives, also known as the ‘Door to hell’. Actually, a natural gas pocket that collapsed, the crater has burnt continuously for the last 40 years.

There will be a chance for all abilities to progress with learning and tips being shared in an informal environment. Costing a cool £3590 per person, this tour starts on June 4th and is 15-day expedition.
