Origin of the Indus
The Indus River valley is one of the most popular areas to settle and for a good reason.
The Indus begins in the Himalayan mountains in the North Western Hemisphere of India. It gets water as runoff from snow melting in the Hindu Kush mountains and other mountain ranges. This runoff keeps the water cold and the water level high.
The Indus River is often been compared to Egypts Nile River. Come to the Indus to make that decision yourself, you'll have a blast!
