Caption: Ganges delta, India, satellite image. The Ganges is a river which flows for over 2400 kilometres from the Himalayas to the Indian Ocean's Bay of Bengal. It carries fertile soil and nutrients, which it deposits in its vast delta floodplain. The silt deposits cover an area, in India and Bangladesh, of 60,000 square kilometres. The delta is highly cultivated and floods every summer during the monsoon season. North is top.
