If you think Ancient Khorezm citadels are a bit a kind of lonely places, get there: Kirkiz kala means "the 40 women citadel"...

My experience, Explo description: 

40 archer women were supposed to live in this little fortress. The fortress is standing nowadays close to a little road.

On the way to Kirkiz kala (from Ayaz Kala) have a check at the Koy Kala (North side of the road).

My personal recommendations: 

Have a drink or a night at Yurt camp laying down the Ayaz kala fortress : ayazkala [at] newmail [dot] ru, or 8 361 532 43 61, 8 361 585 19 98.
This is the only hotel in the neighbourhood !

How getting there: 

The fortress is close to the road.

Get a taxi from Khiva or Ourgench. 60 dollars for a 1/2 day trip to the fortresses.

A tip to sleep: 

You can stay in Khiva or at Ayaz Kala Yurt camp.
