Ganges River

The Ganges River is India’s most important river. It begins in the Himalayan Mountains and flows southeast through India and Bangladesh before emptying into the Bay of Bengal.

The water of the Ganges carries tons of rich sediment (topsoil, silt and minerals from the mountains) that is gradually spread along its path enriching the farmland and creating a large, fertile delta at the mouth of the river.

asia geographic understandings4
ASIAGEOGRAPHIC UNDERSTANDINGS

Ganges River cont.

Because so many people live and work along the Ganges, the water in the river is heavily polluted.

The country of Bangladesh is located almost completely in the Ganges River delta.

Monsoon Season

Heavy flooding in this part of the world during the monsoon season (a seasonal prevailing wind, lasting several months, bringing heavy rains) often causes great hardships for those living in this country.
