Of the regions of Islam, there were two ways into the steppe to the north-east - one from the lower reaches of the Syr Darya, one of Talas (now Aulie-Ata), both paths lead to the area Kimaks people, whose center was the area north of the Irtysh River. Kimaki, the western neighbors of the Kirgiz, were totally unknown to the Chinese and the first mentioned only in the Muslim literature. Was the trade route from the country Kimaks the country as a continuation of the Kirghiz path from Islam to Kimaks areas and what was the relationship at all between these two nations, it is not known. Like the Kirghiz, the language kimaki were Turks, one of the areas in the country in the manuscript Kimaks Tumanskiy said that there are people follow the customs of the Kirghiz.  It appears that kimaki had lost the political unity of the Kirghiz, although mentioned in the manuscript Tumanskiy Hagan (Arabic and Persian writers always write Khakan) Kimaks and although the head sooner separated from the main mass of the people of the western branch Kimaks, Kipchak, was considered a vassal of the king kimatskogo. In the XI century. When Mahmud Kashgar, Kimaks no more, then living on the Irtysh yemek people referred to in Gardizi like Kipchaks, among kimatskih birth. We know that Kipchaks not subsequently forming a political whole, gave its name to the steppes of Turkestan and the western part of south-eastern part of Russia, in the same period poslemongolsky Kipchaks formed the core of the Cossack nation, which in the XVIII century. Kalmyks (Oirats) and Russian wrongly assigned the name "Kyrgyz." There is no indication that the disintegration of the Kipchaks contributed to their eastern neighbors.
