The Gulp is a 22 kilometres long river in eastern Belgium and southeastern Netherlands. It flows through the Belgian provinces of Liège and Limburg, and the Dutch province of Limburg. It is a strongly meandering, fast flowing, left-bank tributary of the Geul river. Because of it strong meanders, it is difficult to determine its exact length.
During Roman times, the river was called Galopia or Gulippa, meaning little Geul or upper brook. The Gulp is a real trout brook: flowing fast and rich in oxygen. Brook trout is abundant. The landscape of the narrow Gulp valley resembles much the valley of the Geul: a fascinating mixture of deciduous forests, meadows, farmland, muddy banks, stream pools, orchards and holle wegen .
