River Belaja
arises of the confluence of River Ufa with River Djoma a few kilometers west of the capital of Bachkortostans. From this rather modern megacity, it flows in uncountable serpentines towards River Kama. After 225 km the river meets the town of Bisk with 40'000 habitants and after another 240 km it flows into River Kama. The entire length from its spring in Ural is 1540 km.

As usual in this part of Russia, surroundings exist of woods and meadows. Below the town of Dyurtyuli begins the delta with dozens of side arms, continuing to the mouth at River Kama.
