In English we'd likely add "River" at thr end for greater clarity.

In Chinese 江 is supposed to be a large river whereas 河 is a river or a watercourse, but 长江 is so famous that it is also known simply as 江.
长江 is 6300 km long and is the world's third largest river, while 黄河 (mentioned elsewhere in this section) is 5464 km long and is one of the most important birthplaces of ancient Chinese civilization.
