Figure 1 Rising in the mountains of southeastern Turkey, the Tigris River flows along a 1,899 km (1,180 miles) course and southeast through Iraq, where it forms the perimeter of the fertile Mesopotamian Plain. Eventually the Tigris merges with the Euphrates to become the Shatt al Arab, which then flows south to the Persian Gulf, depicted in the lower right of the regional (inset) map.
