The country from which the Brahmaputra river does not flow is Bhutan. The Brahmaputra river flows at an average altitude of 4,000 meters and is located in a glacier near Mt. Kailash/ Mansarovar in Tibet (China). It is the world’s highest river. In China, the river travels 2,057 km east. It enters India from the Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh. It proceeds southward, pouring a lot of water into Assam, where it causes flooding. It then exits the nation and travels through Bangladesh’s Bahadurabad Ghat before entering Meghalaya.

Essential facts about the Brahmaputra are shared here to enhance your understanding of the river and its ecosystem:

  • The Sanskrit words “Putra” and “Brahma,” which both mean Brahma’s Son, are used to create the river’s name.

  • The river’s highest depth is 120 meters, while its average depth is 38 meters.
  • The Himalayan snow melts in the spring, causing the river to overflow and become vulnerable to floods.
  • The highest peak in the Brahmaputra Basin is Mount Kanchenjunga, 8,586 meters high. The river has a significant flow since heavy rainfall is expected in the southern part of Tibet.
  • The river passes through Bangladesh, India, and China (Tibet). It travels from Tibet via Bangladesh and the Assam Valley toward the southwest. The Ganges Delta combines with the Padma, the Ganges’ other name in Bangladesh, and the Meghna River.
