Untitled[edit]

Vipasa or beas was a much longer river until about a 1000 years ago, when Sutlej changed course abandoning its old channel in southwestern Punjab near Bathinda and took a westerly turn from east of Ludhiana towards Harike beyond there it now flows in the old channel of Beas down to Pakistan, there is a dried up channel from the old Beas river bed just to the west of Ferozepur as the Beas now joins Sutlej at Harike instead of taking a U-turn like bend from Kasur before coming back to the present Sutlej channel(old beas channel) south-west of ferozepur as it did about a millenium ago, people living downstream from the confluence of sutlej and beas still call the river Beas, even though Sutlej is clearly the larger river, also they call the dried up channel west of ferozepur near Kasur, sukka Beas(dried up Beas). Geologists have discovered that Beas joined Satluj west south-west of Abohar near Sulemanke and Hindumalkot before Sutlej changed its course towards Harike to meet Beas several hundered kilometers upstream.

User Pcbali's text[edit]

Moved from article to here, not encyclopedic content. Restrict discussion to talk page.

Beas River actually originates from "Beaskund". It is situated at base juncture of Dhauladhar Ranges and Peerpunjal Ranges of Himalayas, just north of Rohtang Pass and can be reached on foot, climbing from Manali-Solang-Dhundhi- Buchethauch- Beaskund. It is a small fresh water pond getting water from Glaciers around and a Beas River, a small stream emerge out which is contributed by more such water channels in way to become stronger near Solang where it get a strong tributary which comes from Rohtang pass and mighty Beas River comes to existence. The video clips of Beaskund can be seen by searching on www.youtube.com as well as at www.webshots.com contributed by author.

Beas photo at Pathankot[edit]

The photo of Beas at Pathankot seam to be Upper Bari Doab Canal rather than river Beas, which passes around 25 km south of the town. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Balsumeet (talkcontribs) 03:41, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
