Aydarkul Lake is located on the driest territory of Uzbekistan, among the sands of Kyzyl-Kum desert. How could a lake appear in the middle of the desert? The lake emerged during the accidental natural processes when the waters of Sirdarya River and Chardarya reservoir burst out its banks in 1969 and filled the desert lowlands. The length of Aydarkul Lake is 250 km. The waters of Aydarkul Lake are hugely popular with fishermen from all over the world who visit in droves to spend a day or more angling for a catch in the huge turquoise mirror. The lake is teeming with all kinds of species of underwater life including carp and barbel carp, white bream, perch and catfish, as well as the indigenous central Asian samarkan waddler. Fishermen are welcome to bring their own gear, or hire all their gear on arrival.
