Description China's third longest river. The major tributaries of the Pearl River are the Xijiang River (West River), Beijiang River (North River), and the Dongjiang River (East River). After they merge together, they form the main stem of the Pearl River, which runs into the Pearl River Delta and to the South China Sea.
