This country is located in central Asia. It is bounded by Kazakhstan on the northwest and north. China on the east and south, and by Tajikistan and Uzbekistan on the south and west. The capital city is Bishkek. It was formally known as Pishpek, later as Frunze. The Kyrgyz, a Muslim Turkic people, constitute nearly three-fourths of the population. The history of the Kyrgyz in what is now Kyrgyzstan dates at least to the 17th century. This country was known under Russian and Soviet rule as Kirgiziya was conquered by Tsarist Russian forces in the 19th century. Kyrgyzstan declared its independence on August 31, 1991.
This is above all a mountainous country. At its eastern extremity, next to the Uighur Autonomous Region of Sinkiang, China, rises Victory Peak, at 24,406 feet Kyrgyzstan’s highest peak. Mount Khan-Tengri is on the border with Kazakhstan. On the southern border lie the Kok Shaal-Tau, Alay, Trans-Alay, and Atbashi ranges. To the southwest are two great hollows, the Fergana Valley and another valley close to Mount Khan-Tengri. The latter valley is bounded by the westward-thrusting arms of the Kungey-Alatau and Terskey-Alatau ranges and contains Lake Ysyk, whose clear deep waters are fed by the snow-covered peaks.
The rugged mountain-and-basin structure of much of the country, and the high alpine plateau of the central and eastern regions, are separated from the Fergana Valley on the west by the Fergana Range, running southeast to northwest, which merges into the Chatkal Range. The only other important lowlands in the country are the Chu and Talas river valleys in the north, with the capital, Bishkek. The country’s lowland areas, though occupying only one-seventh of the total area, are home to most of its people.
