Definitions for angara river
This page provides all possible meanings and translations of the word angara river
The Angara River is a 1,779-kilometer river in Irkutsk Oblast and Krasnoyarsk Krai, south-east Siberia, Russia. It is the river that drains Lake Baikal, and is the headwater tributary of the Yenisei River. Leaving Lake Baikal near the settlement of Listvyanka, the Angara flows north past the Irkutsk Oblast's cities of Irkutsk, Angarsk, Bratsk, and Ust-Ilimsk. It then turns west, enters the Krasnoyarsk Krai, and falls into the Yenisei near Strelka. Below its junction with the Ilim River, the Angara has been known in the past as the Upper Tunguska. Confusingly, some maps referred to this same section of the Angara as Nizhnyaya Tunguska, i.e. the Lower Tunguska – the name that is currently applied to another river.
