The Gan River (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Gàn Ji?ng, Gan: K?m-kong) travels 885 km (550 mi) north through the western part of Jiangxi before flowing into Lake Poyang and thus the Yangtze River. The Xiang-Gan uplands separate it from the Xiang River of neighboring eastern Hunan.[1]

It is the major geographical feature of Jiangxi, and gives its name to the Gan variety of Chinese[2] as well as the province's one-character abbreviation.[3]

The river feeds into Lake Poyang, which in turns connects with the Yangtze.[4]
