Though less famous than it’s notorious neighbor Kazakhstan (you can thank Borat for that one), Kyrgyzstan is similarly landlocked yet beautiful nation, emerging from the control of Soviet Russia and trying to break its way into the Western world. With mountains taking up three quarters of the land, Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful country, ripe for adventures and activity!

The country has faced some inner turmoil since gaining independence from Russia in 1991. However, things have settled in the last couple of years, and has allowed the nation to start building itself as a tourist destination (and given those gorgeous mountains, it shouldn’t be too difficult).
