Travel and Tourism - Kyrgyzstan - November 2018

“Kyrgyzstan’s location on the Silk Road and in two of the world’s major mountain ranges, the Tien Shan and the Pamirs, gives the country fantastic cultural and natural advantages. Dramatic, snowy mountain peaks and extensive valleys, numerous glacial lakes, verdant summer pastures or ‘jailoos’, along with several UNESCO Silk Road sites all provide superlative locations for beach, culture and adventure tourism. There is significant need for investment across many areas to fully propel tourism onto the international stage but there is little doubt Kyrgyzstan has the potential to become a serious player in the outdoor adventure tourism arena.”
