The 20-centimetre-thick, half-kilometre-long pipe had been laid beneath the border river Chu, the police official from the northern Kyrgyz city of Tokmok said.
It was equipped with multiple valves and lay on a track along the river's bottom, News.com.au reported.
The police officer assumed that thousands of litres of alcohol were smuggled with it, primarily vodka for months.
The pipe was discovered during a routine inspection.
