North Keltma (Russian: Северная Кельтма) is a river in Komi Republic, Russia, a left tributary of the Vychegda River. It is 155 kilometres (96 mi) long, with a drainage basin of 7,960 square kilometres (3,070 sq mi). It starts in the extreme south of the Komi Republic, near the border with Perm Krai. It flows into the Vychegda near the settlement of Kerchomya. There are many swamps along the river.
