Chambal RiverThe river flows through Dhar district for 17 kilometers dividing the Sagar Project in the east. It flows along the Ujjain, Ratlam and Mandsaur districts, which lies in the northern portion of the Gwalior Division. The river enters a deep ravine in Rajasthan near Chourasigarh, and then flows 226 kilometers in the northeast in Rajasthan. It forms a borderline between Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh for about 252 kilometers. It also forms a borderline between Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh for 117 kilometers.
