Basgurly-Zhazgurly depression - information for tourists

We recommend traveling along the Basgurly-Zhazgurly depression in a 4x4 car with at least two cars. A very dusty country road runs along the depression, so traveling through this area can be difficult, so be prepared for an extreme journey, it can also be very hot during the day and cold at night. There may not be mobile communications in this region, so our company uses a satellite phone for communication. There are several water wells in the vicinity of the depression, the location of which you need to know, so when traveling here you need to have a supply of water at the rate of 5 liters per person per day. We recommend traveling through the Basgurly-Zhazgurly depressions in late spring and early summer, as nature blooms here and at this time it is especially beautiful here.
