Photographer's Note

Best opened in a new tab for better detail.

From the top of the Zoroastrian Tower of Silence, Chilpyk this is the view looking south towards the Amu Darya River. Not far away is the border with Turkmenistan.
When you are on the top of Chilpyk you are not where they used to lay out the dead for birds to cleanse them. Chilpyk was originally 15 metres higher but as it was built out of mud it has been eroded away. A reminder - Chilpyk is not a natural hill.
