History of Tien Shan Mountains in Kyrgyzstan

In this article you can find the explanation who opened Tien Shan system and created a map of it. Locals examined facts even in school period, so it is obligatory to inform our guests as well.

Russian geographer, public figure Petr Petrovich Semenov in 1856-1857, Tian‑Shansky studied the Tian-Shan, making major scientific discoveries. Kyrgyzstan took most of the territory during that time. He drew a map of the Tien Shan ridges, explored Lake Issyk-Kul, discovered the upper reaches of the Syr Darya, and saw the Tengri mountain group‑Tag and pyramid of Khan‑Tengri, reached the glaciers originating in the Tengri-Tag group. The researcher established the absence of active volcanoes on the Tien Shan (at that time it was considered an irrefutable statement), proved that the eternal snow lies on the largest mountain system in Kyrgyzstan at a very high altitude, established the vertical natural belts of the Tien Shan, discovered dozens of new, unknown to science plant species. His great merit is the compilation of the first scheme of the orography of the Tien Shan in the form of a system of latitudinal ridges. In addition, he collected the richest collections of rocks and plants. All of its beauty you will see during tours! It is important to mention that with the usage of car rent you will focus directly on the data without minor nuances.

Before P. Semenov, Hsuan Tsang in 7th century noted that at the heights we can find ice and snow. And Marco Polo in 1273 organized expeditionary tours to our country.
