longest river of northern Iran, rising 920 feet (280 m) in elevation and breaking through the Elburz Mountains in an impressive gorge 23 miles (37 km) long to emerge on the plain of Gilan, where it forms a delta and flows into the Caspian Sea. With its main tributary, the Qezel Owzan, the Safid River is approximately 600 miles (1,000 km) long and drains 21,700 square miles (56,200 square km). A dam at Manjil at the upper end of the gorge is designed to prevent floods, improve and extend irrigation, and provide electric power.
