The Ghataprabha river is an important right-bank tributary of the Krishna River and flows eastward for a distance of 283 kilometers before its confluence with the Krishna River at Almatti. The river basin is 8,829 square kilometers wide and stretches across Maharashtra and Karnataka states.


The river is crossed by a suspension bridge near the Gokak Falls. The bridge was constructed in the late 1800s/early 1900s.[1]
