The catchment area of the Anadyr with the most important tributaries
The Anadyr rises in the Anadyr Plateau southwest of Lake Elgygytgyn . From there it flows in a south-westerly direction. At river kilometer 759 the Anadyr meets the right tributary Jablon . The Anadyr now turns to the east and flows through the Anadyr lowlands until it, finally widening strongly, reaches the city of Anadyr . This lies within its elongated funnel mouth at a narrow point that separates fresh from brackish water. Further down, the Anadyr merges into the Bering Sea .
The landscape at Anadyr is mostly dominated by forest tundra and tundra ; In the tundra, due to the permafrost and the low water content in the soil, no taller-growing plants can develop; instead, lichens , mosses , shrubs and ferns predominate.
