Eastern Euroasia locator

As the largest continent, Euroasia contains some of the world’s most spectacular and majestic river basins, lakes and inland seas. The eastern part is bounded on three sides by oceans: the Arctic to the north, the Pacific to the east, and the Indian to the south. Many seas, bays, and gulfs indent the continent’s coastline, which is 62,000 km (39,000 mi) long. It is also a home to the largest saltwater lake in the world - the Caspian Sea, and the deepest and largest freshwater lake the Lake Baikal.

China has over 1, 500 large rivers, including the Heilong, the Yellow River, the Huaihe, the Yang, and the Zhujiang. Most rivers in China cover great distances. The Yangtze River and the Yellow River are famous throughout both Asia and the world. The overall length of the Yangtze River is 6,300km, third in the world after the Amazon of South America and the Nile of Africa. The Yellow River flows for 5,464km, just a little shorter than the Mississippi, putting it in fifth place. If we linked all these rivers within the boundaries of China together, the overall length would be 43,000 kilometers.

Russia boasts 120,000 rivers with a length of 10km or greater each. The majority of rivers, major included (Ob, Irtysh, Yenisei and Lena) are located in the Arctic Ocean basin formed by several shallow seas: the Barents, Pechora, Kara, Laptev, East Siberian, and Chukchi seas. The Amur, Anadyr, Penzhina and some other rivers flow into the Pacific Ocean. The Don, Kuban and Neva rivers flow into the seas bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Russia's most known river, the Volga River, flows all the way from Central Russia to the Caspian Sea in the south. Generally, Russian rivers stretch for 3 million km, dumping nearly 4,000 cu. km. of water annually.
