Gish River | Floodplain with sediment mining
thumb

View from the National Highway 31 in southwestern direction (downstream). The sediment transported out of the Himalaya and deposited on huge alluvial fans in the forelands - such as the one formed by Gish River - is not only interesting from a geomorphological, but also from an economic point of view: particularly gravel is expensively sold to nearby Bangla Desh, where gravel is rare.
