The Iriri River (Portuguese: Rio Iriri) is a large tributary of the Xingu River in Brazil, in the state of Pará. It is 1,300 km (810 mi) long making it the 116th longest river in the world (with Krishna River, India) and the 15th longest in the Amazon Basin. The headwaters are the traditional home of the Panará people.
The Iriri River is rich in fish, including many species found only here and in the Xingu. Large sections remain unexplored due to its remoteness in a region surrounded by Amazonian rainforest, and sections with strong current and cataracts.
