Geography[eedit | eedit soorce]

Chuy River valley

The main northwast pairt o the province is flat, a rarity in Kyrgyzstan. This is the valley o the Chu River. The valley's black soil is vera fertile an is lairgely irrigatit wi water divertit frae the Chu River. Agricultural production includes wheat, maize, sugar beets, potatoes, lucerne, an various vegetables an fruits. Durin the Soviet period, various agro-processin an ither industries wur established throughoot the province, givin rise tae a number o urban centers such as Tokmok, Kant an Kara-Balta. The population is considerably mair heterogeneous than that o the ither regions o the kintra, wi mony ethnic Roushies, Ukrainians, Dungans, Koreans, Germans, etc.

The Kyrgyz Ala-Too muntains form soothren border o the province, an the northren border o Talas Province. There are mony hikin an trekkin routes accessible frae the touns in the valley. The soothwastren heel o the province ower the Kirgiz Alatau is geographically mair like Naryn province. The northeast panhandle is the Chong Kemin Valley.

The main east-wast transportation axis o the province is the Taraz-Bishkek-Balykchy hieway, runnin through maist major ceeties o the province. This road's section wast o Bishkek is pairt o European route E40, kent locally as Hieway M-39 (based on the auld USSR hieway numberin scheme). The same numbers apply tae the road that continues north-east frae Bishkek toward Almaty, crossin the Chuy River an leavin the province for Kazakhstan at Korday border crossin.

The anerlie railway in the province runs alang the same Taraz-Bishkek-Balykchy route; it sees comparatively little uise these days.
