Rafting in Kyrgyzstan
Rafting is a descent along mountain rivers and artificial rowing channels on inflatable boats (or rafts) intended for 6, 4 or 2 people.
On the steep rapids of river systems, rafts are used without skeletons and oars, and a rowing canoe method is used (with the help of one paddle).
Rafting is fundamentally different from other types of rowing in its ideology and type of vessel. This kind of extreme sport is commercial; to participate in it no previous experience is required. To do this, just pay for the tour, and you're already in the group. Another convenient fact is that it is easy for all rivers to get close to the river to enjoy the rafting. The roads to them lie at the beginning and at the end of the route.
