The Kyrgyz Republic is located in the north-east of Central Asia, occupying part of the Tien Shan and the northern chains of the Pamir-Altai. Borders pass mainly along natural boundaries - ridges of high mountain ranges and rivers, only in places do they fall on the plains of the Chuy, Talas and Ferghana Valley.
Kyrgyzstan borders: in the north - with Kazakhstan, in the west and north-west - with Uzbekistan, in the south-west - with Tajikistan and in the south and southeast - with China (border length 1049 km). The total length of the borders of Kyrgyzstan is 4503 km. The total area of the republic is 198.5 km2. 94% of the country is mountains. The average height is 2750 m above sea level.
The territory of the Kyrgyz Republic extends from west to east for 900 km, from north to south for 410 km and lies approximately between 39 ° and 43 ° north latitude. The highest elevated part of the republic is located on its eastern outskirts. Here, in the mountain junction bordering China, the highest points of the entire Tien Shan mountain system rise - Pobeda peak (7439 m) and Khan Tengri (6995 m). From here, the ridges fan-shapedly diverge to the west and south-west, creating separate parallel chains extending mainly in the latitudinal direction up to 300-400 km. On the extreme southern border of the republic with Tajikistan, the highest Chon-Alai (Zaalaysky) ridge stands out, where the second highest peak of Kyrgyzstan is located - Lenin peak (7134 m).
