Despite almost 50 years history of the Kyrgyz Rivers exploring by the white water lovers, lots of rivers still remain oblivious of rafters and canoe - kayaks. There are lots of opportunities for pioneers to travel down the rivers, starting from their source. The most impressive is the rafting tour from Inylchek, the second biggest glacier in the world (59km), through the almost impassable Sarydzhaz canyon, 30km long. Or from the source of the Naryn which is the upper course of the second longest river in Central Asia the Syr-Darya. The most popular among tourists, through their mild climatic conditions, are the rivers floating not higher than 1500m above sea level. Chu River fits more for commercial rafting than the other ones. Some part of it lies at the altitude over than 1,500 meters a. s. l. The climate and temperature of the water (15°-18°C) from June till mid-September means rafting can be done even without diving suits, and the complexity of obstacles does not exceed five points. The section of the river passing through the Bohom gorge is the national 'white water arena1 and a unique training site for the whole Central Asian region. Here in ancient times there lay one of the northern routes of the Great Silk Road. Due to its location near the capital of the republic and communications development over the years, the popularity of rafting in the Bohom gorge is steadily growing both among the people of the country and foreign guests.  Professionals positively compare some sections on the Chatkal, Kekemeren, Naryn rivers to the world famous Futalefu in Chile and the Colorado in the USA. In the times of the Soviet Union the most accepted were prolonged tours on the Chatkal, Kekemeren, Naryn rivers. The Chatkal river was among the five most well-liked rivers in the USSR.
