Kyrgyzstan is a remote and enigmatic country to most, yet one filled with exotic points of interest and striking mountain scenery.
For those who venture in, sites include the capital city of Bishkek and its crowded bazaars and traditional soviet-style monuments, plus the glacier peaks of the Tian Shan mountains and the almost indescribable beauty of the surrounding canyons, gorges and valleys.

- Times to Travel: Due to the mountains rising steeply from the deserts and plains, the climate and temperatures are highly variable.
June to September is the best time to visit northern Kyrgyzstan, while March to October are the ideal months for the southern region.
Winters are bitter cold. Mountain passes are often blocked from November until April or May. Many domestic flights are grounded in the winter.
