The picturesque gorge Chychkan is situated along the road Bishkek - Osh, just behind the Ala-Bel pass at an altitude of 2200 m above sea level. Chychkan in Kyrgyz language means "a little mouse”. It has received its name because a lot of field mice inhabit the valley.

The slopes in Chychkan gorge are covered by Tien Shan spruce, juniper, wild barberry bushes and brambles. At the bottom of the gorge Chychkanruns the rough mountain river bearing the same name.
