Aydarkul - is situated in north-eastern Uzbekistan, about 50 kilometers from the city of Nurata. The lake is located in an almost uninhabited area, its neighborhood inhabited only by 345 families. It is oddly enough but for its appearance we should to thank the disaster - catastrophic floods of 1969, when flood waters of Syr Darya spilled Syr Chardara reservoir filling the saline depression, which served to drain the drainage water, and formed Aydar Arnaysay - water system, known today as Lake Aydarkul, its length exceeds 250 kilometers, and the width is 15 kilometers.
Today, a giant mirror of the lake is 3000 square kilometers and it is situated at an altitude of 247 meters above sea level. Mineralization of water is between 3-5 grams per liter in the east, and up to 8 – in the west, moreover it provides a wonderful bioorganic habitat for flora and fauna environment. On the shores of this manmade wonder many species of birds in the Red Book found the shelter, some of the are like Dalmatian Pelican, small Cormorant, Red-breasted Goose, Lesser White-fronted, white-eyed dive, Pallid Harrier, White-tailed eagle, black vulture, etc. According the number of mammals species, most of which are native only for this area, the areas of the lake far ahead of all other areas of the country.
Of course, the most exciting adventure in Aydarkul - is fishing. And it is precisely for these hundreds of tourists come here from all over the country. Lake simply abounds in fish and in addition to traditional forms, such as: carp, carp barbel, chub, perch, catfish, bream, it will not be difficult for a seasoned fisherman to catch such species like snakehead, Marinka, Tupac or Samarkand hromulya – which are Central Asian native fish species.
