Billed 'the most beautiful country in the world' by The Times, Kyrgyzstan is a must-stop destination for anyone travelling through Central Asia or along the Silk Road. Take in the majesty of the celestial Tien Shan mountains, spend the night in a yurt or Kyrgyz home, or trek in the Ala-Archa canyon, roaming grounds for the enigmatic snow leopard. The Bradt guide is an invaluable companion for anyone venturing into this off-the-beaten-track destination. With more maps and practical information than any other guide, Bradt's Kyrgyzstan details towns and villages not covered by the competition. Entertainingly written, it provides unparalleled background information, including an update on the country's political situation.
'Bradt Guides are expertly written and longer on local detail than any others.'
'Utterly essential...particularly the dos and don'ts and basic phrases.'
James Willsher, Times of Central Asia
