Located in Central Asia, the landlocked nation of Kyrgyzstan borders Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and China. The unique landscape of Kyrgyzstan ranges from mountains and valleys to rivers and lakes, which offer a wonderful background for thrilling mountain climbs. The larger objectives, like the Tian Shan and sustained expeditions in the north and east, require a high fitness level and proper training. Climbing here also requires acclimatization due to the high altitude and towering summits.
Depending on your location, the climate of Kyrgyzstan can vary drastically. The Tian Shan and its high elevation changes between continental to polar with frequent freezing temperatures, while the southwest part of the country offers a subtropical climate that can reach upwards of 40 degrees (Celsius) in the summer.
