Kyrgyzstan, officially the Kyrgyz Republic and also known as Kirghizia, is a country in Central Asia. Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked country with mountainous terrain. It is bordered by Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west and southwest, Tajikistan to the southwest and China to the east


Safety

Most of Kyrgyzstan is very safe but there are still a few areas around the country that could pose a risk to your safety. While there haven’t been widespread violent disputes since 2010, tensions still continue to exist over the recognition of the Kyrgyz/Uzbek borders.

Language:

Kyrgyz belongs to the Turkic group of languages, which includes languages such as KazakhUzbek, Turkish, Uyghur, and Tatar. Turkic languages have been spoken for many centuries across vast territory from the Balkans to China. Kygyz is one of the major languages of the Kipchak sub-branch of the Turkic languages.

Festivals:

Festivals in Kyrgyzstan reflect the rich history and nomadic customs and traditions of the Kyrgyz people. Festivals feature sporting competitions, races and demonstrations, as well as handmade products, food, and performances.

Today, festivals are a great way to keep traditions alive and to gather people not only from Kyrgyzstan but from around the world. The most popular festivals feature arts and crafts, cuisine, folklore, felt, hunting with birds, and horse games. Many Kyrgyz festivals are held in jailoos (or summer pastures), with yurts showing off traditional dishes and selling crafts.

Festivals in Kyrgyzstan are some of the best places to explore and enjoy Kyrgyz traditions and customs.

Best time to go:

The most suitable time to visit northern Kyrgyzstan is from June to September; March to October is perfect for southern Kyrgyzstan. For climbing in the low mountain regions, summer is great – the mountain slopes are flushed with flowers that are blossoming between April and June.

Rough budget:

Kyrgyzstan is an excellent country to travel in and you can get around and live quite comfortably on as little as 1000 Som or US$15 a day if you are moving slowly. This is budget travel. If you are on a quick, short holiday you are probably going to want to do things a bit differently. What is the average cost of lunch in Kyrgyzstan? In Kyrgyzstan, a typical fast food meal costs: 3.20 USD (250 KGS), while a beer will cost you $0.90 (70 KGS) & local transport $0.13 (10 KGS).
