Write main features of Indus Basin.
Answer:
The river Indus rises in Tibet, near lake Mansarovar.
Flowing west, it enters India in the Ladakh district of Jammu & Kashmir. It forms a picturesque gorge in this part.
It flows through Baltistan and Gilgit and emerges from the mountain at Attock.
All its major tributaries the Satluj, the Beas, the Ravi, the Chenab and the Jhelum join together to enter the Indus near Mithankot in Pakistan.
Beyond this, the Indus flows southwards eventually reaching the Arabian Sea, east of Karachi. Indus is 2,900-km long and is one of the longest rivers of the world.
