Beauty on the Silk Road

The pristine and peaceful territory of Kyrgyzstan is dotted along the ancient Silk Road. Impressive open valleys home to grazing wild horses, glacial rivers that carve through the mountains, ink-black night skies lit only by the stars, and sweeping views of the peaks that fill the background. Despite it’s size, smaller than Belarus and Romania, Kyrgyzstan offers an incredible depth of wild and unspoiled scenery.

**Rugged, wild, colossal **

Kyrgyzstan is home to around 88 major mountain ranges, with most of them forming the formidable Tian Shan. Most of the ranges vary between 100km and 300km in length, and 10km to 40km in width. The Tian Shan comprises 40 peaks over 6,000 meters, with the highest, Victory Peak, stretching to 7,439 meters. If you’re seeking climbs among the giants of the world, then head into the Kyrgyz mountainside for Victory Peak.
