The Siran river is originates from the Mandagucha Glacier and merges into the Indus River. The Siran issues from Panjool and flows through the western plain of Pakhli. Two canals have been taken out from the Siran river, the upper Siran canal at Dharial and lower Siran canal at Shinkiari. From Pakhli the Siran runs into the Tanawal hills and joins the Indus at Tarbela in the north west. Its total course is between 70 and 80 miles, and it irrigates 6,273 acres of land.[3]
