The Astarachay (Persian: آستاراچای‎‎, Azerbaijani: Astaraçay), is a small river that defines the eastern border between Iran and Azerbaijan in Western Asia.[1]

It is a tributary of the Caspian Sea. After flowing in a canyon through the Alborz mountain range, it reaches its river mouth on the southwestern Caspian coast.

It is partially in Gilan Province of far northwestern Iran.
