River Map of Bangladesh | Rivers Of Bangladesh

Bangladesh is a nation closely linked with its river system and its geography & culture is influenced by the riverine delta system. Bangladesh lies in the Biggest river delta in the world – The Ganges Delta system. This is the valley stretching from the Himalayas to the sea the only region in the entire world. After flowing from its Himalayan source waters and through Bhutan, China, and India, the mighty Brahmaputra, Ganges and all her sisters empty into the Bay of Bengal.

The international number of rivers can be 58 as the Brahmaputra is called “Nod” while the general term for the river is “Nodi”. The gender division of rivers is interesting from history and mainly depends on the source of the river but not the size or flow briskness. Sangu and Halda are the only two internal rivers on the Bangladesh river map that originated and finished within Bangladesh.
