The Lingese is a 7.35 km long right tributary of the Wupper , which is called Wipper here in the upper reaches. The brook rises between the Heedberg and Arney elevations at 411 m above sea level in the Kiersper district of Höhlen and is dammed in a pond shortly afterwards. The Lingese flows through the small Höhlen nature reserve (identifier: MK-130, CDDA code: 318554) and passes under the district road 44 in Höhlen.It then flows in a westerly direction through the approximately five hectare Lingesetal nature reserve (identifier: MK-133 , CDDA code: 318734) at the foot of the elevation up of the plate .

In the nature reserve, the stream valley of the strongly meandering, near-natural Lingese with its grassland areas and wet forests, mainly Bacherlen - ash forest , is under protection. In reserve the Lingese gets between the towns of caves, Eickerhof and Oberhof inflow of the cave Siepen , the Eickerhofsiepen and the Kamp Siepen , and another of two unnamed tributaries.

The Klockendelle and the approx. 2.3 km long Yellow Ahbach also flow into the nature reserve from the left . At the exit of the nature reserve, the Lingese in the Kiersper district of the same name, Lingese, is fed from the right by the approx. 1.1 km long Hottenschlaer Bach and soon after by the Höckinghauser Bach . At the city limits of Marienheide near Stöcken , the Stöcker Delle and Eichholzer Delle flow into it , at the Marienheide district of Wernscheid from the left the approx. 1.1 km long Kattwinkeler Bach and the approx. 780 m long Richelssiefen . Immediately thereafter, the Lingese is in the from 1897 to 1899 built Lingesetalsperre jammed.

In the dam, the Lingese receives inflow from the approx. 2.4 km long Benninghauser Bach , the Lingesiefen and the Linge Delle . At Schmitzwipper , the Lingese flows into the Wupper shortly afterwards at an altitude of 317 m.
