Central Asia remains a place where adventure isn’t just possible: it’s unavoidable. The fabled Silk Road nations that divide Europe and Asia have been central to world history for millennia. Here, Kyrgyzstan is one of the largest and most stunning countries in Central Asia. Adorned with breath-taking topography, Kyrgyzstan is known for a lot of outdoor enthralling activities, making it a heaven for adventure enthusiasts.
Slightly offbeat as compared to other Asian countries, Kyrgyzstan is a hidden gem that should not be missed out on. There are more than 85 distinct mountain ranges here, which in total cover more than 70% of the geographic territory. This leads the country to often be described as the “Switzerland of Central Asia” — and to some unbelievably stunning landscape photography. Kyrgyzstan is also home to three UNESCO World Heritage sites. One of these is the Tien Shan mountain range. Another is the historic Silk Road, the ancient trade route that connected China with Europe and the Middle East.
