Oxbow lakes are found in River valley.

What are oxbow lakes?

When the river enters the plains, it twists and turns to form large bends known as meanders. In due course of time, the meander loops start to cut off the river and form cut off lakes, known as the ox-bow lakes. A meandering river across a floodplain forms cut-offs that later develops into ox-bow lakes.
