This is the Kyrgyzstan chapter from Lonely Planet’s Central Asia guidebook.

Kyrgyzstan is a nation defined by its natural beauty. Joyously unspoilt mountainscapes, stark craggy ridges and rolling summer pastures are brought to life by seminomadic, yurt-dwelling shepherds. It’s easy to see why Kyrgyzstan is the gateway of choice for many travellers in Central Asia.
