Khowai River is a trans-boundary river that originates in the eastern part of the Atharamura Hills of Tripura in India. Flowing north-north-west, it leaves India at Khowai, and enters Bangladesh at Balla in Habiganj District. The river passes east of Habiganj town, where it is under pressure from encroachment and pollution. North of town it turns west, and joins the Kushiyara near Adampur in Lakhai Upazila, Kishoreganj District.[1][2]
