Central Asia refers to the region located in the central part of the Asian continent. The term is usually used to refer to five former Soviet Union “stan” countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan.
The region has been somewhat of a cultural melting pot where local nomadic culture mixed with Middle Eastern Islamic culture, Russian Soviet culture, and European and Asian cultures connected via the Silk Road. The region is varied when it comes to its geography as well. Alpine mountains of Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan are at a stark contrast with steppes of Kazakhstan, and deserts in Turkmenistan.
Kyrgyzstan is one of Central Asian countries with sublime nature. Lake Issyk Kul is the second largest high altitude lake surrounded by snow-capped alpine mountains. Over 90% of the country are mountains. Honey harvested from the alpine meadows of Kyrgyzstan has repeatedly been recognized as the best in the world.
