Mura

 

a river in Irkutsk Oblast and Krasnoiarsk Krai, RSFSR; a left-bank tributary of the Angara. It measures 330 km long and drains an area of 10,800 sq km. It flows across the Cisangara Plateau in a deep valley with a wide bottom. There are rocky shoals in the river’s lower course. There are rapids near the mouth and, below that, a fjord-shaped estuary. The river is fed by snow and rain. The mean flow rate 79 km from the mouth is 25 cu m per sec. The Mura is used for floating timber.
