The Zhuokou River, also spelled Chokou River or Jhuokou River (Chinese: 濁口溪; pinyin: Zhuókǒu Xī; Wade–Giles: Cho2-kou3 Hsi1),[2] is a tributary of the Laonong River, which in turn is a tributary of the Gaoping River, the main stream of this major river system in southwestern Taiwan.[3][4] It flows through the Taoyuan and Maolin Districts of Kaohsiung City for 50 km.[5]
