The Brahmaputra is one of the main rivers in Asia. It has its origin in the Himalayas of Tibet. It flows through Tibet, India and Bangladesh. It is 2,900 km (1,800 mi) long. Massive flooding occurs when the ice melts in the Spring.

Finally it joins with the Ganges river and empties into the Bay of Bengal. This delta is the biggest delta in the world.
