The '''Yarkand River''' is a [[river]] in the [[Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region]] of western [[People's Republic of China|China]]. It is one of the headstreams of the [[Tarim River]].<ref name="WildererZhu2003">{{citation|last1=Wilderer|first1=Peter A.|last2=Zhu|first2=J.|last3=Schwarzenbeck|first3=N.|title=Water in China|url=https://books.google.com/books?id=OYbmKnx3UmkC&pg=PA5|year=2003|publisher=IWA Publishing|isbn=978-1-84339-501-0|pages=5–}}</ref> It is approximately 1097&nbsp;km (600&nbsp;mi) in length, with an average discharge of {{convert|210|m3/s|cuft/s|abbr=on}}.
 
The river originates in the [[Karakoram]] range in the south of the [[Kashgar Prefecture]]. A notable tributary of the upper Yarkand River is the [[Shaksgam River]], which is also known in its lower course (before falling into the Yarkand) as the Keleqing River ({{zh|c=克勒青河|p=Kèlèqīng Hé|links=no}}).
