The last hidden paradise on Earth
The population of Kyrgyzstan is 5.5 million overall with 835,000 people living in the capital, Bishkek. Kyrgyzstan is 199,900 km2 (77,181 sq mi) wide and hosts part of the Tian Shan mountain system, the second highest and largest system of mountain ranges in the world. Its highest peak is Jengish Chokusu (Victory Peak) located at 7,439 meters (24,406 ft).
Independent since 1991 with the fall of Soviet Union, Kyrgyzstan is proud to be the first parliamentary republic in Central Asia.
Kyrgyzstan offers some of the most scenic views on Earth and has been dubbed “the Switzerland of Central Asia” for its stunning mountainous nature. Thanks to its unique and diversified natural landscape, Kyrgyztan is an all round vacation spot. Whether you like hiking, horse riding, mountain climbing or more relaxing activities like chilling on the beach, Kyrgyzstan will give you a unique chance to explore your passions!
In the last years Kyrgyzstan has become more popular, especially among hikers and nature lovers, but the country remains one of the most underrated destinations in the world. But this is also what makes Kyrgyzstan truly special: left untouched from mass tourism, Kyrgyzstan’s nature preserved the beauty it had thousands of years ago when the country was a key passage of the Silk Road.
