It is the longest left tributary of the Volga and the largest one in discharge. At their confluence, in fact, the Kama is even larger than the Volga.It starts in the Udmurt Republic, near Kuliga, flowing northwest for {{convert|200|km|mi}}, turning northeast near Loyno for another {{convert|200|km|mi}}, then turning south and west in Perm Krai, flowing again through the Udmurt Republic and then through the Republic of Tatarstan, where it meets the Volga.(File:Kama River (4x3 photo).jpg|right|thumb|The Kama River in the city of Perm)Before the advent of railroads, important portages connected the Kama with the basins of the Northern Dvina and the Pechora. In the early 19th-century the Northern Ekaterininsky Canal connected the upper Kama with the Vychegda River (a tributary of the Northern Dvina), but was mostly abandoned after just a few years due to low use.The Kama featured in the 2013 Russian film The Geographer Drank His Globe Away, in the climactic rapids scene.
