Ashgabat Warnings and Dangers: 15 reviews and 7 photos


One thing that Turkmen love is sour camel's milk. I was at a shashlikh stand and a glass is produced for my enjoyment. It was white and a little frothy, and smelled a bit like buttermilk, which I don't care for.

Then the taste hit. Obviously high in lactic acid and other things that hit me in my nose, I gagged and tried like the trooper I am to drink it, but couldn't. I swear, I have vomited up stuff that tasted better than that.
