Geography of Yamuna River
The geography of River Yamuna is closely related to the topography and the geographical formation of Northern India.
Yamuna or Jumna River is a river of northern India. River Yamuna is the longest tributary of the Ganges River, having a length of approximately 860 miles or 1,380 km. The source of the Yamuna happens to be in the western Himalayas. The river initially flows south and then southeast, thus running parallel to and just west of the Ganges. The river then passes by Delhi and Agra, and debouches into the Ganges at Allahabad. Hindus consider this point where the rivers meet to be sacred.
The Yamuna is navigable for small boats and barges. During the summer months the river dries down to a small stream, partly due to evaporation and partly because water is drawn away for the purpose of irrigation canals.
