The greater part of the valley is made of similar disposition of vale and mountains, as is

observable in all these alpines regions, and consists of series of mountains ranges of

Himalayas, running mostly in parallel lines from south -west to north and east, separated

by glens, which are in general of no great breadth.The chief peculiarity by which

Kashmir is distinguished from the mountain countries on its confines is the richness of

its vegetation. the mountains, although for a considerable part of the year capped in

many parts with snow, are coated with rich forests.The chief river of Kashmir is river

jehlum (Vitastha)(Behut),the Hydraspes of the ancients.This rises at angle of the

mountains, chiefly from the springs of Virnag, in the south -east extremity of Kashmir. It

is immediately joined by a stream from the south , the Kaimu River , and another from

the north ,the river Brang. This latter rises by two heads in the district of the same

name,to the east of Anatnag, at eight miles distance. it again divides two branches the

more northerly of which is joined by a small stream from Kotonhara, and the more

southerly by the stream from Virnag :the two main trunks again meet near anatnag and

form the River jehlum,which,as it proceeds,receives other streams, as the Lambodari

River or Lidder River from the north-east , on the road of Amarnath, and the Shupien or

Shuingulu river, which is formed by various rivulets from the north of the Pir panjal

mountain ranges.The sindh river,which takes its main source from Zoje la pass, thajiwas

glacier and from glacier streams forms its own valley.
