The Brahmaputra River in Assam State, India – September 3rd, 200927.4N 94.9E
The 1,800 mile- (2,900 kilometer-) long Brahmaputra is one of the major rivers of Asia. From its origin in southwestern Tibet as the Yarlung Zangbo River, it flows across southern Tibet to break through the Himalayas in great gorges and into Arunachal Pradesh where it is known as the Dihang.
It then flows southwest through the Assam Valley as Brahmaputra and south through Bangladesh as the Jamuna. There it merges with the Ganges to form a vast delta.
Here, the Bramhaputra River can be seen flowing through the Indian state of Assam, northeast of Bangladesh. Assam is divided into two broad categories based on the river’s flow, namely Upper Assam and Lower Assam. Upper Assam is located to the east and characterized by highlands, while Lower Assam is located to the west.
