Formally known as the Kyrgyz Republic, Kyrgyzstan is a beautiful mountainous country located in Central Asia. Once part of the Soviet Union, it has been an independent country since the dissolution of that country in the early 1990's.  It's home to some of the most spectacular natural scenery in Asia, including some of its highest mountains.  In this video by contributor Mohamed Elangy, he uses a DJI Phantom drone to create an aerial portrait of this magical landlocked country.

Canyon Fairy tale

Alexandr

Prepare to be blown away by this magnificent drone video of a canyon in the Central Asian republic of Kyrgyzstan.  It's known as the Fairy Tale Canyon, and when you watch the video you will see why.  Also known as Canyon Skazka, it's located in the vicinity of Issyk Lake, one of the other natural wonders of this amazing land astride the ancient Silk Road.  The spectacular rock formations (and the canyon itself) are a function of the highly unusual rock composition, wind, and water erosion factors here.

Mohamed Elbangy put together this marvelous drone video from the Alay Valley of Kyrgystan, the Central Asian republic.  The valley runs through the southern part of Osh, one of the main provinces in the southern part of the country.  The valley is formed by the Alay Mountains to the north and the Trans-Alay Mountains to the south.  The latter is part of the Pamir system, whose highest peak (which is located to the east, in western China) is over 7.6k meters or 25k ft. - among the highest in the world.
