The Chandalar River[pronunciation?] (T’eedriinjik[pronunciation?] in Gwich’in) is a river in Alaska. Its peak flow recorded by the USGS was 62,800 cubic feet per second ( 1,780,000 liters per second), on June 9, 1968. 
The Chandalar River is in the northern interior of the state of Alaska. It flows into the Yukon River less than 50 miles (80 km) west of Fort Yukon, Alaska.
The North Fork of the Chandalar River begins near Atigun Pass in the Brooks Range. At these headwaters of the Chandalar River is a flat valley known as Chandalar shelf just east of the Dalton Highway, where caribou are known to winter.
The longer East Fork has its headwaters near the Romanzof Mountains in the eastern Brooks Range. From there, it flows down past Arctic Village, then joins the North Fork and continues past the village of Venetie to the Yukon River.
