  1. Himalayan Rivers-
    The three most important Himalayan Rivers are Ganga, Indus, and the Brahmaputra. These are actually river systems as they are joined in their journey by many tributaries. These rivers are perennial rivers as they are not dependent upon rainfall to feed them. They originate in the Himalayas as a result of melting of ice and glaciers.
    Peninsular Rivers

    The origins of peninsular rivers lie in plateaus and small hills. There is no snow to feed water, and as such these rivers are seasonal and dry up in summers. These rivers do not have a high erosion activity as they flow through gentle slopes.
