River, eastern Russia.

One of the longest rivers in Asia, Yenisey rises in the borderland of south-central Russia and Mongolia and flows along the edge of the West Siberian Plain to empty into the Kara Sea. Along its course it receives numerous tributaries, including the Angara River.

Approximately 1,900 mi (3,000 km) of the river's 2,540-mi (4,090-km) course are navigable.

The cities of Abakan, Krasnoyarsk, Igarka and Dudinka stand on the Yenisey river
