A land-locked country, Kyrgyzstan is located in Central Asia between the latitudes 39°N and 43°N. Kyrgyzstan borders the Chinese People's Republic to its east. On its other borders are three newly independent states, the countries of Kazakhstan to its north, Tajikistan to the southwest, and Uzbekistan on its western border. The country occupies 198,500 km2, and only about 7% of its land is arable. Its climate offers extreme conditions of harsh cold winters (-23°C) and hot, dry summers (+41°C).

Referred to as the "little Switzerland of Central Asia," Kyrgyzstan is located amid the Pamir and Tien Shan mountain ranges, which are among some of the highest in the world, with the tallest peak being Mount Pobeda at 7,439 m. The second-largest mountain lake in the world, and one of the most transparent, Lake Issyk Kul (Kyrgyz for warm lake), is located in the northeastern part of Kyrgyzstan at 1,607 m above sea level and has brackish water that never freezes. Kyrgyzstan lies in a highly active seismic region.
