Barka River (Arabic: نهر بركة nahr Baraka) flows from the Eritrean Highlands to the plains of Sudan. With a length of over 640 km, it rises just outside Asmara and flows in a northwestern direction through Agordat. The river merges with the Anseba River near the border with Sudan.
In Sudan, the Barka flows seasonally to a delta on the Red Sea, near the town of Tokar.
