Streaming in a valley toward the north of Issyk-Kul Lake. Simple access from Bishkek and pleasant pine-forested class 4-5 gorges settle on this stream extremely prevalent choice. Chong-Kemin is a correct tributary of Chu.


Chilik is almost similar to Chong-Kemin however, it streams inverse way (east and in Kazakhstan) along the northern side of Issyk-Kul. There is no street in Chilik valley and the main sensible path to the put-in is climbing from Issyk-Kul, including Kyrgyz-Kazakh border crossing which is hard to make legal.


This is an unordinary waterway in Kazakh edges of Tien-Shan. Dissimilar to other Tien-Shan streams it has no icy mass segment and in this way no late spring surge. The water level is high in the spring and diminishes bit by bit by July. The waterway has a low angle and comprises chiefly of an individual, yet intense rapids. Easily accessible by streets from Almaty.


Powerful Naryn is the significant stream of the Central Tien-Shan, navigating everything from east to west.

Arpa / Alabuga

Arpa is the left (southern) tributary of Naryn close to the Chinese outskirt. It is accessible from the Naryn – China street (borderland permit is mandatory) yet was once in a while run as a result of its remote area and specialized trouble. It is a totally self-bolster class 5 endeavour.
