Description: The Physical Map of Kyrgyzstan showing major geographical features like elevations, mountain ranges, deserts, seas, lakes, plateaus, peninsulas, rivers, plains, landforms and other topographic features.
Formerly known as Kirghizia, Kyrgyzstan officially called the Kyrgyz Republic is situated in Central Asia. It is a landlocked country with Tajikistan to the southwest, Kazakhstan to the north, China to the east and Uzbekistan to the west.
Eighty percent of the country is covered by mountains which is called Tian Shan. The country has no coastline to any sea and so all the rivers flow into the closed drainage system which has no reach to the sea. The remaining twenty percent of the country is made up of basins and valleys.
The largest lake in Kyrgyzstan which is also the second largest mountain lake in the world is Issyk-Kul Lake. Jengish Chokusu which is situated in the ranges of Kakshaal-Too is the highest point at 7,439 metres. Less than eight percent of the land can be used for cultivation because of its mountainous topography.
The cultivable land is found in the Valley of
Fergana. Rare earth metals and Gold can be found in
abundance in the country. Kara Darya is the main
river which runs from west and falls into Uzbekistan
running through the Valley of Fergana. Naryn is another
river which flows into Uzbekistan and the confluence of
these rivers forms Syr Darya.
