Gyzyletrek (also Bayat-Khadzhi, Kyzyl-Atrek) is a town in western Turkmenistan. It is located in Balkan Province on the Atrek River bordering on Iran. The name means "Red Atrek" and may be a reference to the silt load that the Atrek River carries at that point. It is the capital of Etrek District (formerly Gyzyletrek District).

Nearby towns and villages include Agach-Arvat (4.8 km), Torshakli, Iran (6.3 km), Yasydepe (15.6 km), and Yarymtyk (19.4 km). There is no air service to Gyzyletrek, although there is an airport, Kizyl Atrek Airport, just to the south.[1]
