Han River (Hanshui)


Han River (Hanshui)

The Han River (zh-tsp|t=漢江|s=汉江|p=Hàn Jiāng) in China was often referred to as Hànshǔi (漢水 "Han water") in antiquity. It is a left tributary of the Yangtze River (Cháng Jiāng) with a length of 1532 km.

The Han River rises in southwestern Shaanxi and then crosses into Hubei. It merges with the Yangtze at Wuhan, a city of several million. The merging rivers divide the city of Wuhan into three areas, that of Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang.
