The Chegitun (Russian: Чегитун) is a stream located in the Chukotka Peninsula in Far East Siberia. It is the easternmost river flowing into the Chukchi Sea from the Siberian side, which makes it the easternmost significant river of the Eurasian continent.
The Chegitun River flows in a roughly northeastern direction and crosses the Arctic circle a few miles before it meets the sea in a 500 m wide estuary. Close to its mouth there is the small abandoned village of Chegitun; the villages of Inchoun and Uelen are located not far down the coast. The Chegitun is frozen from October to June.
