The Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan is little known in the west. Tucked between Kyrgyzstan and China, it’s a small country with over 2,000 years of history, through various cultures and empires. The country’s relative obscurity and geographic location make it far off the well-traveled tourist path. But a visit to the mountainous landscape reveals a lot of untouched, pristine natural beauty and stunning vistas. Dutch photographer Albert Dros has a great series exploring this country, with a diverse and impressive range of images. From star-lit skies to silhouetted mountain scapes, we’re both intrigued and impressed by the natural beauty of the Kyrgyz countryside.
