Alaknanda river

The Alaknanda, a Himalayan river flowing in Uttarakhand, is one of the two headstreams of River Ganga. It originates from Satopanth glacier and meets Nandakini in Nandaprayag, Pindar at Karnaprayag, Mandakini in Rudraprayag and Bhagirathi at Devprayag. Thereafter, it is known as Ganga, which flows to Rishikesh and Haridwar. Flash flood and landslide in the Rishi Ganga and Dhauli Ganga caused Alaknanda in Devprayag to become muddied.
