Kyrgyzstan, a cozy highland, is famous for its picturesque Issyk-Kul lake (the 2nd largest mountain lake in the world), as well as for its trekking and skiing opportunities with 60% of the territory covered by mountain ranges. Kyrgyzstan hosted World Nomad Games in 2018, 2016 and 2014.
There are 2000 lakes in Kyrgyzstan, but only sixteen have a surface area more than 1 sq. km. The most popular are Issyk-Kul, Son-Kul and Chatyr-Kul. 40 thousands rivers flow across the country; the most well-known are Naryn, Talas, and Chuy.
