Kurram River (Pashto: ? ?‎) originates from watershed of Koh e sofaid in Kurram District, flows through North Waziristan District, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan and joins River Indus near Isa Khel. It drains the southern flanks of the Spin Ghar mountain range and is a right bank tributary of the Indus River.

Its tributaries include the Kirman River and the Khurmana River.[1][2]

The nearby Kurran-Garhi Project (finished in 1962) provides flood control and is used for irrigation and power.[3]
