Amur river is known as Heilong Jiang in Chinese. It begins in the Mongolian region of China as the Hailar River, becomes the Argun River and then merges with Shilka River to form the Amur River. The river flows along the Russian-Chinese border to Siberia, then northeast across Russian territory to empty into the Tatar Strait.
