When to go

Turkmenistan’s climate is extremely continental with hot, dry summers. Midsummer temperature can reach 45 °C.  However, such temperatures are quite bearable because of the very low humidity.

Winter is mild with average temperatures below freezing for only a few days in January and February. However in the north of the country winter is severe. January temperatures in Dashoguz average - 23 degrees Celsius. Most rainfall occurs in March and April.

Spring (April-June) and autumn (August-October) are the best seasons to visit Turkmenistan.
