Kyrgyzstan travel guide

4.1
Bodies of Water · National Parks · Spas & Wellness
A landlocked country of soaring mountains and sprawling steppes, Kyrgyzstan only became independent in 1991, after several decades as one of the Soviet Union's republics. Today, the country represents a growingly popular tourist destination, enticing visitors to come with its rolling pastures and unspoiled mountain landscapes. A trip to Kyrgyzstan reveals a mostly rural land, where it's still possible to witness the lifestyle of the semi-nomadic shepherds living in portable yurts--simple dwellings made of wood and animal skins. You'd be hard-pressed to find many urban attractions here, but the hospitality of the natives and the stunning natural scenery will more than make up for any lack of modern amenities.
