Kazakhstan is big (see the map, below). We’re the ninth largest country in the world. We’re also very empty – plenty of room for our stunning scenery – with a population of only 18 million, we’re only 64th on the list of most populous countries.
To our south are the other -stan countries. Many visitors combine a visit to Kazakhstan with time in one or more of our four fellow former Soviet Republics, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan too.
TriptoKZ, based in Almaty, Kazakhstan (the red dot on the map) can help you with travel throughout the -stan region.
