This is a map of the Liao River drainage basin.

The Xar Moron river (Mongolian: Shar mörön , "Yellow River";[1]Chinese: ?????, ?????, or ?????; pinyin: Xilamulun) is a river in Inner Mongolia, in northeast China. It flows through the grasslands of that region, forming a valley that is hospitable to both farming and herding. The valley was once home to the Khitan people.

The Xar Moron is the source of the Xiliao River (), which in turn is one of the headwaters of the Liao River.
