a river in India, Nepal, and China. A left-bank tributary of the Ganges, it is the tributary which discharges the greatest amount of water into the Ganges. Its length is 950 km. The Gogra rises in the south of the Tibetan upland. The Gogra (as the Karnali River) crosses the Himalayas in a deeply cut valley. In its lower course it flows through the Indo-Gangetic Plain. The river is fed by snow and glaciers, as well as by rain. The high-water period is in spring and summer. Catastrophic floods occur. The Gogra is navigable from the city of Ajodhya, and it is used for irrigation. The city of Faizabad is on the lower Gogra.
