Where does the sun rise in Kyrgyzstan?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Kyrgyzstan is Ak-Suu in the region of Ysyk-Köl. There, the sun rises at 5:21 am and sets at 8:02 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Isfana (Batken) at 8:31 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Bishkek lies on the 43rd degree of northern latitude and is therefore quite far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Kyrgyzstan this period averages 34 minutes. In June, it's about 35 minutes in Bishkek, while in December it's 32 minutes.
