Kyzyl Kum desert
On the Uzbek lands between the Amu Darya and Syr Darya rivers there is a large Asian desert - Kyzyl Kum. In addition to Uzbekistan, Kyzyl Kum partially extends into the lands of Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan, occupying a total area of 300 km2. Despite the sluggishness of the sandy massifs, the drought and a strongly continental climate, the flora and fauna are quite diverse, especially with the onset of spring, when the amount of precipitation increases.
In addition, the lands of Kyzyl Kum are partially developed by man - small oases are created on the basis of artesian basins, deposits of gold ore are discovered, and sheep farming is practiced.
