The river Prokhodnaya is a picturesque mountain river that originates on the glaciers of the Zailiysky Alatau at an altitude of 3500 meters above sea level, is a tributary of the Bolshaya Almatinka River. The length of the river is 21 kilometers. The river flows through the Prokhodnoye gorge of the same name, the beginning of the route along the gorge along the Prokhodnaya River begins just below the Alma-Arasan resort. The Prokhodnoye gorge is narrow, so it is recommended to make mountain hikes here only when the snow melts and the slopes of the mountains are dry, in spring avalanches are possible here.
