The rivers from the Himalayas start off as glacial melt or emerge as streams from the earth. Many of them merge into bigger rivers that flow on to the plains before eventually joining the sea. The bigger rivers are usually better known than their tributaries. The confluence of many of these rivers have religious significance. Others have developed into trading towns because they provide a place to converge for the people living along these rivers.
Take this quiz to see how much you know about the confluences of Himalayan rivers.
