The basin lies in the sub-tropical region that is situated between 10°N to 30°N latitudes. The tributaries of the River Ganga like the Ghaghra, the Son, the Chambal, the Gandak, the Kosi and the tributaries of Brahmaputra drain it. Look at the atlas and find names of some tributaries of the River Brahmaputra.
The Ganga and Brahmaputra plains, the Himalayan mountains and foothills, and the Sundarbans delta are the major features of this basin. The plain is dotted with oxbow lakes. The monsoon climate dominates the area. From mid-June to mid-September, the monsoon brings rain. Summers are hot, and winters are cool.
