Kyrgyzstan is located in Central Asia. The country is also called Kyrgyzstan, which would be the direct transfer from Kyrgyz. This means: homeland of the Kyrgyz. The former name in Germany was Kyrgyzstan, which can still be found today. But it’s always about the same country!
Kyrgyzstan has no access to the sea. So it is a landlocked country. Kyrgyzstan is further from the sea than any other state on Earth.
There are land borders with Kazakhstan, China, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. On the territory of Kyrgyzstan there are four Uzbek and two Tajik enclaves.
What does the shape of the country remind you of? Maybe a rocket flying to the right? Or an animal whose eye is the great lake?
Kyrgyzstan is a country of mountains. 94 percent of the area is mountainous. The mountain range, which runs across the country and alone occupies 80 percent of the country’s area, is called Tian Shan. The mountains rise steeply, intersected by deep valleys. The highest mountain in the country is also located in the Tian Shan, on the border with China. His name is Dzhengish Chokusu and he is 7439 meters high. Tian Shan earthquakes occur frequently. There are also glaciers here.
To the southwest is the Alai Mountains. Both mountains are separated by the Ferghana Valley, which Kyrgyzstan shares with Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.
