The Holitna, a meandering Interior river flowing through an isolated region, is recommended for paddlers with good wilderness skills. Beginning at the confluence of the Kogrukluk River and Shotgun Creek, the Holitna flows northerly for about 200 miles to its confluence with the Kuskokwim River near the village of Sleetmute. With a watershed of 4,180 square miles, the Holitna is the largest in the lower Kuskokwim basin. The river meanders across a broad, low valley, with gentle slopes rising to thousand-foot hills. In the southwestern part of the Holitna basin, northeast and southwest of the Chukowan River and lower Oksotalik Creek, are high, smoothly rounded hills. The most conspicuous feature is Kazik Hill, an isolated sharp pinnacle about 8 miles northwest of Kashegelok Village.
