Abstract

The Indus River is a major river which flows through Pakistan. It also has courses through China and India. Originating in the Tibetan plateau of western China in the vicinity of Lake Mansarovar, the river runs a course through the Ladakh district of Jammu and Kashmir and then enters Pakistan via the Northern Areas (Gilgit-Baltistan), flowing through the North in a southerly direction along the entire length of Pakistan, to merge into the Arabian Sea near the port city of Karachi in Sindh. The total length of the river is 3,180 kilometres (1,980 mi) and it is Pakistan's longest river. The traditional source of the river is the Senge Khabab or 'Lion's Mouth', a perennial spring, not far from the sacred Mount Kailash. There is also evidence of a steady shift in the course of the river since prehistoric times - it deviated westwards from flowing into the Rann of Kutch and adjoining Banni grasslands after the 1816 earthquake. On 17th September 2010, suddenly the flow changed its course from Kalri Lake, and entered into the Indian Territory. It entered from pillar no. 1102 to 1108 on India Pakistan Boarder. It travelled through great Rann, above Khadir, passed through Bela bet, and entered the little Rann. Then from Little Rann it travelled to Nalsarovar, over-Ground. The Water level was high due to it in the Nal-sarovar.
