The Jama-Suu Glacier, with a length of 10.4 kilometers, an area of ​​35.0 square kilometers, located at an altitude of 3400 to 5040 meters above sea level, belongs to the Sary-Jazz River Basin.
The Jaman-Su glacier descends to the lowest altitude on Ak-Shyirak - 3545 meters above sea level.
The lower end of the glacier digs into erratic moraine deposits. From 1912 to 1959, the glacier retreated 1300 - 1350 meters.
The retreat was accompanied by flattening of the surface and separation of tributaries.
