 Indus River, Tibetan and Sanskrit Sindhu, Sindhi Sindhu, or Mehran, great trans-Himalayan river of South Asia. It is one of the longest rivers in the world, with a length of some 1,800 miles (2,900 km). Its total drainage area is about 450,000 square miles (1,165,000 square km), of which 175,000 square miles (453,000 square km) lie in the Himalayan ranges and foothills and the rest in the semiarid plains of Pakistan. Indus River, Tibetan and Sanskrit Sindhu, Sindhi Sindhu, or Mehran, great trans-Himalayan river of South Asia.

-The Indus originates in the northern slopes of the Kailash range in Tibet near Lake Manasarovar. It follows a north-westerly course through Tibet. It enters Indian territory in Jammu and Kashmir. It forms a picturesque gorge in this part. Several tributaries - the Zaskar, the Shyok, the Nubra and the Hunza join it in the Kashmir region. It flows through the regions of Ladakh, Baltistan and Gilgit and runs between the Ladakh Range and the Zaskar Range. It crosses the Himalayas through a 5181 m deep gorge near Attock, lying north of the Nanga Parbat and later takes a bend to the south west direction before entering Pakistan. It has a large number of tributaries in both India and Pakistan and has a total length of about 2880 km from the source to the point near Karachi where it falls into the Arabian Sea. The main tributaries of the Indus in India are [[http://www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in/​wrpinfo/​index.php?​title=Jhelum|Jhelum]],​ [[http://www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in/​wrpinfo/​index.php?​title=Chenab|Chenab]],​ [[http://www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in/​wrpinfo/​index.php?​title=Ravi|Ravi]],​ [[http://www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in/​wrpinfo/​index.php?​title=Beas|Beas]] and [[http://www.india-wris.nrsc.gov.in/​wrpinfo/​index.php?​title=Satluj|Satluj]].+The Indus originates in the northern slopes of the Kailash range in Tibet near Lake Manasarovar.

 The principal rivers of the Indus River system are snow-fed. Their flow varies greatly at different times of the year: the discharge is at a minimum during the winter months (December to February); there is a rise of water in spring and early summer (March to June); and floods occur in the rainy season (July to September). Occasionally there are devastating flash floods. The Indus and its tributaries receive all their waters in the hilly upper parts of their catchments. Therefore, their flow is at a maximum where they emerge out of the foothills, and little surface flow is added in the plains, where evaporation and seepage considerably reduce the flow volume. On the other hand, some water is added by seepage in the period after the monsoon months. In the main stream of the Indus, the water level is at its lowest from mid-December to mid-February. After this the river starts rising, slowly at first and then more rapidly at the end of March. The high-water level usually occurs between mid-July and mid-August. The river then falls rapidly until the beginning of October, when the water level subsides more gradually. The principal rivers of the Indus River system are snow-fed.

 Zanskar river is formed by two major tributaries in Zanskar valley called Stot and Lugnek river. The former originates from Pansi pass and glaciers on Southern range of mountains at high altitudes about 4500 M. Umasi-la glacier 5234 M is the main glacier contributing to it in lower reach near Tungri. The Lugnek river drains the catchment adjacent to Himachal Pradesh in the East. Both tributaries join at Padam (Zanaskar Tehsil) to constitute Zanaskar river which joins Indus at Nimu. Zanskar river is formed by two major tributaries in Zanskar valley called Stot and Lugnek river.

 In addition, six tributaries namely the Tista, the Sankosh, the Raidak-I, the Raidak-II, the Torsa and the Jaldhaka flowing through the northern West Bengal also join the main stream of Brahmaputra but, in the plains of Bangladesh. The North bank tributaries are flashy and have steep slopes, shallow braided channels, coarse sandy beds, carry a heavy silt charge. The South bank tributaries have flatter grades, deep meandering channels, fine alluvial soils and comparatively low silt charge. In addition, six tributaries namely the Tista, the Sankosh, the Raidak-I, the Raidak-II, the Torsa and the Jaldhaka flowing through the northern West Bengal also join the main stream of Brahmaputra but, in the plains of Bangladesh.
