  1. 1. HIMALAYAN RIVER SYSTEM • TITLE SLIDE NO.
  2. 2. ? Rivers begin in the upper reaches of a watershed (a watershed is the land drained by a specific river and its tributaries ). A river’s headwaters could start as snow melting from rocky mountain peaks or as a little stream bubbling up from a forest floor. 
  3. 3. Take any community with a clean, healthy river. Chances are, that community has a high quality of life. A river and its associated parks and pathways provide places for people to gather, take walks, and go boating and
  4. 4. Freshwater species--the fish, snails, amphibians, mussels, and other species on the planet. They're dying out five times faster than animals that live on land and three times faster than marine mammals.
  5. 5. The Himalayas are not merely a geographical feature, a range of mountains; they epitomise a people’s civilisational identity that goes back to the dawn of history.

  7. 7. The Trans Himalayan Indus River rises near the Mansarovar Lake on the Tibetan plateau. It enters the Himalayas in southeastern Ladakh near its confluence with the River Gurtang at an elevation of 4,200m.
  8. 8. The holiest of all the rivers, Ganga or the Ganges is a perennial river, which is held in high regard by the Hindus. The Ganga river has an exalted position in the Hindu ethos.
  9. 9. One of the great rivers of Asia, the Brahmaputra commences its 3,000-km journey to the Bay of Bengal from the slopes of Kailash in western Tibet. As Tibet's great river, the Tsangpo, transverses east across the high-altitude Tibetan plateau north of the Great Himalayan Range, carving out myriad
