We live in Kyrgyzstan is very much and very beautiful country! The country of motley tops and green valleys.

Often referred to as the "Switzerland of Asia" and the "Island of Democracy," one of Central Asia's most unique and historical lands is a country known as the Kyrgyz Republic. Historically, the Kyrgyz people were a nomadic people composed of 40 tribes. Residing in the high mountainous regions of the Tian-Shan range, Kyrgyz life constituted mostly sheep herding and sustainable agricultural practices for immediate and extended family members. Today, the simplicity and beauty of a historical and traditional life continues alongside the temperament of a nation whose heart lies within the unbelievable sense of hospitality and joy.

The Kyrgyz Republic is a landlocked country in the eastern part of Central Asia that is bordered in the north by Kazakhstan, in the east by China, in the south by Tajikistan, and in the west by Uzbekistan. Bishkek is the capital and the largest city. Kyrgyz Republic is located at the juncture of two great Central Asian mountain systems the Tian-Shan and the Pamirs. These two mountain ranges are geologically separated from each other in southern Kyrgyzstan, between the Alai Mountains of the Tian-Shan and the Trans-Alai Range. Kyrgyzstan is 93% mountainous blanketed with snow capped summits, glacier lakes and rivers, deep gorges, magnificent valleys, and abundant wildlife. The southern region hosts the ancient city of Osh; a vital part of the Great Silk Road and home to Mount Sulaiman, which is considered as the second Mecca.
