Atyrau to Nukus

Postby laurarogers84 » Mon Jun 01, 2015 3:03 pm

Hi all,

So I am hoping to travel from Atyrau in Kazakhstan to Kungrad or Nukus in Uzbekistan in about 10 days time. Any tips for the best way to travel there? Do I need to prebook this journey or would there be a good chance of picking up tickets when I arrive at the station?

Is there a website to prebook the train tickets? (i've tried a few but it says I need to pick up the tickets in person in Moscow or have them posted to an address.)

Also is there any chance of a bus from Atyrau to Beyneu and would it then be easier to pick up a ticket to Kungrad or Nukus at the train station in Beyneu?

Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Thanks,

Laura

Thanks Steven, a shared taxi would be a great back up option. We might be lucky enough to have a few days in the lovely Beyneu before heading to uzbekistan, I've heard such good things about it ; )

It is apparently a real hidden gem.

Having been stuck in Beyneu for 17 hours waiting for an onward train to Nukus, I can confirm that it is every bit as fascinating as previous visitors have reported.
