Oksana Vasilenko Kyrgyzstan is a small country in Central Asia which extends about 900 km from east to west and 400 km from north to south. Most of its territory is taken by the mountains of Tien Shan and Pamir. It has some of the highest peaks in the world, like the Victory Peak which towers at 7,439 m (24,406 ft) and is the northernmost 7,000-metre mountain. People of many different ethnicities live in Kyrgyzstan, but the majority of the country’s population are the Kyrgyz people. Traditionally, the Kyrgyz people were nomads who lived in yurts (circular tents made of felt on wooden framework). In the summer they took their herds of horses, cows and sheep to jailoo (summer pastures in the mountains). For the winter they returned to the valleys. Here are some legends from the beautiful land of Kyrgyzstan.
