'''Kofarnihon River''' ({{lang-tg|Кофарниҳон}}) or ''Kofirnihan'' (also transliterated from Russian as ''Kafirnigan'') is one of the major tributaries of [[Amudarya]] (together with [[Vakhsh River|Vakhsh]] and [[Panj River|Panj]]). It rises on the southern slopes of [[Gissar Range]] in [[Vahdat district]], formerly Kofarnihon district, and flows for about 400 km in the general south-western direction past the cities of Kofarnihon, [[Vahdat]], and [[Dushanbe]], where it turns south and runs through [[Khatlon Province]] toward the border with [[Afghanistan]]. It falls into Amudarya some 40 km west of the confluence point of Vakhsh and Panj rivers. Kofarnihon River is an important source of drinking water, and yet it is highly polluted by irrigation runoff and inadequately cleaned recycled water around the cities of Dushanbe and Vahdat. ==External links== * [http://www.bookrags.com/history/worldhistory/kafirnigan-river-ema-03/ Kafirnigan River] {{Tajikistan-geo-stub}} {{coord missing|Tajikistan}}
