Polyavaam river

The Palyavaam River (Russian: Паляваам) is a stream in Far East Siberia flowing in a roughly westward direction. It passes through the sparsely populated areas of the Siberian tundra and flows into the East Siberian Sea at the Chaunskaya Bay. Its mouth is very close to the mouth of the Chaun River.

The Palyavaam River and its tributaries belong to the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug administrative region of Russia.

There is a small populated place in its basin also called Palyavaam.
