The Kali Gandaki starts at the north of Tibetan plateau of the Himalayas in the Mustang District of Nepal, near the Tibetan border. It is one of the major rivers of Nepal and is notable for the deep gorge through which it flows. This river is functional and very useful at the Indo-Nepal border that provides water for a major Irrigation cum Hydroelectric power facility at the Indo-Nepal border at Valmikinagar. The 7620sq km catchment area of the Gandaki River out of 46,300 sqkm area is located in India.

Gandaki River is one of the major rivers in Nepal and India which is a north bank tributary of the Ganga in India. After flowing from its origin taking numerous twists and turns the Gandaki River flows across the Gangetic plain of Bihar state and eventually merges with the Ganga near at Hajipur or Patna. Triveni is the name given to the entry point of the Gandaki River at the Indo-Nepal border.

As this mighty river enters India at Triveni, it flows rigorously for a comprehensive length of 300 km before joining the River Ganga. Earlier than merging with the river Ganga near Patna, the Gandaki River flows through the districts of Champaran, Sarang and Muzaffarpur. The total length of the Gandak River is 630 km out of which 330 km flows in Nepal and Tibet.
