Kyrgyzstan

Boasting some of the highest altitudes and the second largest mountain lake in the world, Kyrgyzstan travel is an eco-tourists paradise. The surreal natural beauty of this country untouched by development boasts beautiful mountains and lakes, majestic glaciers, pristine forests and breathtaking green valleys outlined by beautiful pastures and orchards. The Pamir-Alay mountain range sitting in the southwestern part of the country and the Tien Shan mountain range sitting in the northeast dominate the terrain and are home to over two thousand lakes and natural hot springs.

In the summer months trekking up mountains and rafting down rivers and lakes are popular activities to take part in while in the winter months heli-sking is a popular activity for both the natives and visitors alike. While partaking in one of these fun filled outdoor activities keep your eyes out for the endangered snow leopard; a native to these parts. Kyrgyzstan works hard to protect the beautiful endangered species living among the two mountain ranges; Pamir-Alay and Tien Shan.
