Panjnad

 

(Sanskrit, “five rivers”), the lower course of the Sutlej River in Pakistan.

The Panjnad extends for 96 km, from the confluence of the Sutlej with the Chenab River to the confluence of the Sutlej with the Indus. The “five rivers” are the main rivers of the entire river system: the Sutlej and its tributaries the Beas and the Chenab and the Chenab’s tributaries the Jhelum and the Ravi. The water level of these rivers rises sharply during the monsoon season in July and August, so that the combined volume is no less than that of the Indus. The rivers are widely used for irrigation, and there is a dense network of irrigation canals. The Panjnad is navigable during flooding.
