Kyrgyzstan is the most beautiful country I've ever seen. It's known as the mountain kindgdom and for good reason.

I have no stories to tell, I spent two weeks bush-camping the most glorious countryside, taking hikes through the mountains up to waterfalls and glaciers, watching herds of wild horses run through the camp-sites, and then a couple of days in the capital, Bishkek, before heading into the world's most populous country. China.
