Places to visit in Kyrgyzstan

Discover where to go in Kyrgyzstan, from the leafy capital, Bishkek, to the remote azure waters of Lake Song Kol

An important stopping point along the Silk Route, Kyrgyzstan is a predominantly rural country of immense snow-coated mountains, sapphire lakes and wide-open steppe grazed by wild horses. But, there are also places to go that will give you a taste of the country’s deep-rooted culture. Our specialists have journeyed across this mysterious land and can help you decide which places to visit in Kyrgyzstan based on your interests.

The capital, Bishkek, is a tree-filled city watched over by jagged mountain peaks. Here, you’ll find remnants of the country’s Soviet past, including a giant statue of Lenin. For a deeper look into Kyrgyzstan’s history, visit Tash Rabat: a 15th-century stone caravanserai comprising 31 domed rooms, set in a steep green valley. Or, to experience the nomadic lifestyle that still exists throughout the country, stay in a yurt camp on the shores of Lake Song Kol.
