Introduction to Irtysh River(额尔齐斯河)

From its origins as the Kara-Irtysh (Black Irtysh) in the Mongolian Altay mountains in Xinjiang, China, the Irtysh flows north-west through Lake Zaysan in Kazakhstan, meeting the Ishim and Tobol rivers before merging with the Ob near Khanty-Mansiysk in western Siberia, Russia after 4,248 kilometres. This is the only exorheic river in China which flow to the Arctic Ocean.

The river's sources are in China, and it is called the Black Irtysh until it flows into Lake Zaisan in Kazakhstan. Several years ago, however, China built the Black Irtysh-Karamai irrigation canal, which is more than 300 kilometers long and will take up as much as 40 percent of the Black Irtysh's annual flow.
