Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word liao river.


  1. Liao River

    The Liao River is the principal river in northeast China. The province of Liaoning and the Liaodong Peninsula derive their names from the river. The river is also popularly known as 'mother river'. The western branch of the Liao Xiliao River is formed by the confluence of the Xar Moron River flowing from the east and the Laoha River flowing from the south, at approximately 43° 25' N, 120° 45' E. It is joined by the Xinkai He, which drains the southeast slopes of the Khingan Mountains and is dry in its upper reaches except after thunderstorms, 8 km north of the city of Shuangliao. The eastern branch of the river rises in low mountains in central Liaoning. The two branches of the river meet near the junction of Liaoning, Jilin and Inner Mongolia, approximately 42° 59' N, 123° 33' E, and flow across a vast plain to the Bohai Gulf. Two major tributaries of the river, the Hun He and the Taizi He, both of which flow down from the Qianshan range, used to flow into the Liao River shortly before it flowed into the sea, but the Atlas of China shows that while the two tributaries continue to follow their traditional route and flow into the sea at what this atlas still identifies as the "Liao He Kou", the mouth of the Liao River, virtually all of the water of the Liao He has been diverted into the ShuangTaizi He, which flows into Bohai Gulf about 35 kilometers to the northwest. Google Earth also shows this new pattern.
