Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan

Take an adventure holiday in KYRGYZSTAN with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

Kyrgyzstan is bordered by China, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and the major geographical features are the peaks of Tien Shan and the associated valleys and basins that encompass entire country.

In ancient times Kyrgyzstan occupied an important place on the Silk Road particularly the town of Osh, which is Kyrgyzstan's second and oldest city, now celebrating its 3000th anniversary. The ancestors of the present day Kyrgyz people probably lived in southern Siberia until the 10th century, but under Mongol incursions began to spread southwards. Later on the area, which is now Kyrgyzstan, came under the Manchus and from the 18th century it was part of Kokand Khanate.  The Russians invaded in the late 19th century and the land was then amalgamated into the Soviet Union until 1991, when Kyrgyzstan gained its independence.
