Hi,
Spent some time googling up in Russian but didn`t find any practical information besides that it is 135 km from Shymkent and bunch of journalists going there for a photo trip. https://www.fergananews.com/articles/8554
If you find out how to get there, do let us know! it will be useful for future travellers.

I now have an offer for a daytrip from Schymkent to Bayzhansay Ghost Town. 85USD. I think this is a good offer. The guide wrote to me that we will need 4wd from a nearby town and that the road is very bad. I will go September 24-27 approximately. If anyone want to go with me. Let me know
