The Qiemo River, also called the Cherchen or Qarqan River, runs across the Tarim Basin in this orthorectified image of part of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

After flowing down from the Altun Shan Range of the Kunlun Mountains, the river runs through Qiemo County, then turns eastward, flanking the southern edge of the Taklamakan Desert, and eventually feeds into the Lop Nor salt marshes. Some dunes of the Taklamakan are visible near the river.
