The Story of Teesta

The Teesta River, originating in the Himalayas, travels a long way through the mountains and plain land before reaching Bangladesh.

In this country, the river flows through Lalmonirhat, Nilphamari, Rangpur and Kurigram districts before joining the Brahmaputra River in Gaibandha district.

Here, the river exhibits herself in various forms at different times. Somewhere she is flowing with all her might, especially in the monsoon, while in the dry season she lies dormant amid sandy shoals in some other areas.
