How does the Brahmaputra river enter India? Which are its tributaries?
Answer:

  • The Brahmaputra rises in Tibet, near the Mansarovar lake. Then it flows eastwards, parallel to the Himalayas. On reaching the Namcha Barwa, it takes a U-turn and enters India into Arunachal Pradesh through a deep gorge.
  • Its tributaries are the Dibang, the Lohit and Kenula.
