Kyrgyzstan borders Kazakhstan to the north and to Uzbekistan to the east and to Tajikistan and China to the south and east. Heavenly Mountains (Tien Shan) take up the largest part of the area and 90% of the land is over 1,500m, with 71% over 2,000m.
In Kyrgyzstan the highest summit is Pobedy Spade with 7.439m (24.406ft) and the lower point is Kara-Daryya with 132m (433ft). Kirghizstan is also home to several large ponds, by far the biggest being Issyk Kul in the northwestern part of the Kyrgyzstan, which at 1,606 metres above sealevel is the second biggest mountain pond in the state.
It has an extremely diverse and arid terrain, from arid mainland to high Tien Shan poles, from sub-tropical in the south-west to moderate in the north promontory.
