Three Himalayan river systems are the Indus river system, the Ganga river system and the Brahmaputra river system.

Ganga river system:
River Ganga originates in the Gangotri glacier in the Himalayas. At Devprayag, it is joined by River Alaknanda. In Haridwar, the Ganga emerges from the mountains in the plains. The Ganga is joined by many tributaries such as Yamuna, Gandak, Kosi and Son. River Yamuna meets Ganga at Allahabad.

River Ganga then flows to the east till Farakka in West Bengal. At this juncture, River Bhagirathi–Hooghly—a distributary of Ganga—emerges which flows southwards to the Bay of Bengal. The Ganga flows into Bangladesh where it is joined by River Brahmaputra. The river then drains into the Bay of Bengal. The delta formed by the rivers Ganga and Brahmaputra is known as the Sundarban delta which is the largest delta in the world. It is also home to the Bengal Royal Tiger.
