Average time to visit

Landlocked and surrounded by mountains, Kyrgyzstan enjoys sunshine and low rainfall for most of the year. In winter, the Arctic winds bring in precipitation, snowfall and cold sub-zero temperatures. As such, Kyrgyzstan is particularly good to visit between spring to late autumn (April-October).
