Mahananda River
The Mahananda River flows through northern parts of West Bengal, Bihar in India and Bangladesh.
 
 Mahananda RiverThe Mahananda River is a major confluent of the Ganges in eastern part of India. The river originates from the extreme north of West Bengal from the hills of Darjeeling. It then flows southwards through the fertile agricultural area in Bihar and enters West Bengal and flows past English Bazar. The river then flows in the southeast direction in to Bangladesh.

The River merges with the Ganges after flowing for 225 miles (360 kilometers). The river does not have any tributaries or distributaries. In Bangladesh, the river flows for thirty-six kilometers. The river is mainly fed by the monsoons and sometimes causes floods. The river has a low water level during the summers or winters. Siliguri and Malda in West Bengal in India are situated on the bank of this river.
