Rivers

Kyrgyzstan has more than 40 000 rivers and streams. It length reaches about 150,000 km and drains almost 47 cubic km of water every year. Our company provided river tours in Kyrgyzstan for our guests as well.

Usually the water comes from melt water, glaciers and snowfields (in general, from mountains), but, fifth of the water flow comes from rain.

Mountain streams are not navigable and that's why it is complicated to control them due to the extreme drop in altitudes. However, they are appropriate for white water rafting.  Before, there was a special industry, which used the mountain streams for transportation. Nowadays nobody uses it. When you will travel in Kyrgyzstan, you will have opportunity to visit the mountain streams in your tour. Our travel agency is professional in tourism sphere and ready to offer you the best tours in Kyrgyzstan! We recommend you to rent a car and make your ways easy!

When you travel in Kyrgyzstan, you may have questions about rafting or canoeing expeditions. Sometimes we can't give you answer for example if you ask about the rate of flow along the River Naryn at different stages along its 535 km.

Kyrgyzstan is famous for its big amount of water. The longest river in Kyrgyzstan is Naryn river. Its length is about 535 km. This river is valuable for Kyrgyzstan. It formed by the by the the Big and Little Naryn Rivers and collects several large waters such as:  the At Bashi and Kekemeren. After that it flows into the Toktogul Reservoir and spreads through the Fergana Range into the Fergana valley. Finally, it flows as Syr Darya into the Aral Sea. We will organize you a tour in Naryn, so that you will be able to see such amazing place. Before visiting rivers our guides will inform you about accident prevention for avoiding troubles in tour in Kyrgyzstan.

The next river is The Talas. It is also considered to be a main river in Kyrgyzstan. The river is well known due to its banks of the river in 751, where the Chinese agonized the overthrow that marked the end of the Westwards expansion.  Over the time it unrestricted the confidences of the manufacture of paper and silk to the world.

Tours in Kyrgyzstan will give you an opportunity to see The Chui River in the North which comes from the Naryn region. It is surrounded by the eastern edge of the Kyrgyz range and goes through Book Gorge to the Chu valley that passes by Bishkek and finally scatters into the deserts of Kazakhstan. In tour you will also see The Southern flank of the valley which is formed by the Kyrgyz mountain range as well as the northern flank by the moderate Jalanash hill in Kazakhstan. The valley is rather watered.

Talking about rivers we want to present you the next river - The Sary Jaz. It appears from the slopes of the Khan Tengri Mountains and goes through exciting peaks and wavering to China. There were talks that government supposed to build up a road in order to cross the valley in 2003. In order to walk in the region, you have to be in a good shape because the condition in valley requires a good physical training.

The Chatkal is located in the Western Tian Shan mountain range, the River Chatkal flows through a remote valley in the extreme west of the country and into Uzbekistan.
