The Kūnaṛ River or Kama River is about 480 km long, located in northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, and eastern Afghanistan. It emerges just south of the Broghil Pass, in the upper part of Chitral District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa near the Afghan border.
The river has great untapped hydropower potential which could be harnessed for cheap hydro electricity generation. Currently, under construction Golen Gol power project is also located on this river but its further development will lead the region on the path of progress
