a river in the Kabarda-Balkar ASSR, a right tributary of the Baksan River of the Terek basin. The Cherek is 76 km long and drains an area of 3,070 sq km. It is formed by the confluence of the Cherek-Balkarskii and Cherek-Khulamskii rivers, which originate at glaciers on the northern slopes of the Greater Caucasus. The Cherek is fed mainly by glaciers and snow. High water occurs in the summer. The average flow rate below the confluence of the headstreams is 39.5 cu m per sec. The Cherek is used for floating timber.
