The Pskem Mountain Range (Russian: Пскемский хребет, Pskemskiy Khrebet) or Pishkom Mountains, a range in the west Tien Shan, is a natural border between Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It extends over 160 km from north-east to south-west in the extreme north-eastern finger of Uzbekistan's Tashkent Region. The range is a water divide between Pskem River to the north and the Sandalysh River, Chatkal River, and Ko'ksu River to the south. The highest elevations are attained in the north-east of the range: Mount Adelung (4,301 m) and Mount Beshtor (4,299 m).
