Guaporé River

[Port. gwah-poo-re; Sp. gwah-paw-re]
Rio Guaporé is the name of a river in western Brazil along the Bolivian border, its Bolivian name is Río Iténez.

The river has its source in the Brazilian Mato Grosso circa 150 km northeast of Pontes e Lucerda. From this town on it flows in a westerly direction for about 120 km, where at Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade it joins Rio Alegre. It flows in a northerly direction for another 180 km and from then on it forms the borderline between Brazil and the Brazilian states Mato Grosso and Rondônia in the northeast, and Bolivia and its departments Santa Cruz and Beni in the southeast. Here it carries the name Iténez on the Bolivian and Guaporé on the Brazilian side, before it joins Río Mamoré at Sorpresa.
