What is the longest river in Asia?

Answer

The Yangtze River in China is the longest river in Asia. It flows for 3,915 miles, or 6,300 kilometers. This length makes it the third-longest river in the world after the Nile and the Amazon.

This river is one of the most important bodies of water in Chinese history as the culture of southern China developed along its length. Using it for travel, trade, fishing, irrigation and other ventures has continued unabated for thousands of years. Today, the Yangtze is home to Three Gorges Dam, which is the largest hydroelectric power station in the entire world, producing 18,000 megawatts of power.
