Following the break-up of the USSR, Kyrgyzstan soon earned a reputation as the most hospitable and least repressive of the newly emerged central Asian republics. Unlike some of its neighbours, it has actively encouraged foreign tourism and has pursued a policy of supporting community projects with an emphasis on adventure tourism. The Bradt guide details all the services and experiences the country offers including trekking, mountaineering, horseriding and wildlife-watching. Historical sites, cultural activities and background on the Kyrgystan people are all covered by this definitive guide.
