Some of the prominent rivers in Pakistan include:
  • Indus River: The Indus is the largest and most important river in Pakistan. It flows from Tibet, through India, and into Pakistan, covering a significant portion of the country’s length. The Indus River is the lifeline of Pakistan and supports extensive agriculture along its banks.
  • Jhelum River: The Jhelum River is a major tributary of the Indus River. It originates from the Indian-administered territory of Jammu and Kashmir and flows into Pakistan, where it merges with the Chenab River.
  • Chenab River: The Chenab River is another significant tributary of the Indus River. It has its source in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and flows into Pakistan, where it joins the Jhelum River.
  • Ravi River: The Ravi River also originates in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh and flows into Pakistan. It forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan in some regions.
  • Sutlej River: The Sutlej River is the easternmost of the five rivers of Punjab. It originates in Tibet, flows through India, and then enters Pakistan, where it eventually joins the Chenab River.

These rivers, collectively known as the “Five Rivers of Punjab,” are essential for Pakistan’s agriculture, providing water for irrigation and sustaining the livelihoods of millions of people in the region.
