The Songacha or Sungacha River (Сунгача) (Chinese: 松阿察河; pinyin: Sōngàchá Hé) is a river marking part of the border between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China. It is a tributary of the Ussuri River, and the only outflow of Khanka Lake.

The Songacha ranges from 180 to 210 kilometres (110 to 130 mi) in length; the length fluctuates as the stream bed changes every year. The area of its basin is approximately 25,600 square kilometres (9,900 sq mi).

The river supports a rich diversity of flora and fauna, including Nelumbo nucifera in its basin.

The Songacha's waters come from rain, snow and springs.
