Musi River


Musi River

Dutch  Moesi Rivier,  

      main stream of southern Sumatra, Indonesia, about 325 mi (525 km) long and draining an area of 24,500 sq mi (63,500 sq km). It rises near Gunung (mount) Kaba (6,355 ft [1,937 m]) in the Pegunungan (mountains) Barisan and flows first south-southeast, then northeast, breaking through the mountains in the upper Palembang district to enter the Tertiary hill zone at Tebingtinggi. In the rainy season the river is navigable upstream as far as the Air (river) Rawas, some 200 mi from the sea. The Musi joins the Ogan and Komering rivers near Palembang, 50 mi downstream from which it passes through a large delta before entering the Selat (strait) Bangka. It has depth enough for ocean vessels below Palembang.
