What is the deepest river in the world?

The Congo River is the deepest in the world, with some areas that are about 230 metres deep.

For most of its course, the depth of the Congo River is between 15 and 30 metres, although in a stretch of its lower course it can be as deep as 230 metres.

The Congo River is also the longest river in Africa with a total length of 4,700 kilometres, as well as the second largest river in the world by discharge volume, following the Amazon.
