a river in India and Pakistan, a left tributary of the Chenab (Indus River basin). The Ravi measures 725 km long. It originates on the southeastern spurs of the Pir Panjal mountain range, and its upper course flows through a deep valley. Farther down the river breaks through the Dhaoladhar Range and flows through the Punjab to its mouth. There is high water during the summer monsoon season.

The Ravi is widely used for irrigation, which takes up about one-third of the summer flow. Water from the river flows through many irrigation canals and is regulated by dams. The city of Lahore (Pakistan) is located on the Ravi.
