First we'll take in the white marble sea of Ashgabat, one of the least visited capital cities on Earth before our trek covering 150km across the "Black Sands". During our journey there will be chances to meet nomads living in this spartan landscape as we push ourselves towards our goal of the Darvaza gas crater, known to some as the Door to Hell.
