Pranhita River flows on the edge of Gadchiroli district in Maharashtra and Adilabad district in Andhra Pradesh.

The river finally empties into the Godavari River, near Sironcha in Maharashtra.

Wainganga RiverThe Wainganga river of India originates about 12 Km from Mundara village of Seoni district in the southern slopes of the Satpura Range of Madhya Pradesh, and flows south through Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra in a very meandering course of roughly 360 miles. After joining the Wardha, the united stream was called the Pranahita, finally empties into the River Godavari. The river has urbanized extensive flood plains with sweeping graceful meanders and low alluvial flats and meander terraces.
