Our yurt camp is an ideal place for star gazing as there is no light pollution around the camp. Due to the arid climate, the sky is clear and cloud-free most of the time. You can admire the Milky Way from the top of the hill nearby or sit on the benches in the camp. There is a small telescope on site that you can use for star gazing.
