Consider the following pairs:
- Confluence of Bhagirathi and Alaknanda→ Devprayag
- Confluence of Alaknanda and Mandakini→ Rudraprayag
- Confluence of Alaknanda and Pindar Ganga→ Karnaprayag
Which of the above is/are correct?
The five confluences, known as the Panch Prayag, are all along the Alaknanda. They are, in downstream order, Vishnuprayag, where the Dhauliganga joins the Alaknanda; Nandprayag, where the Nandakini joins; Karnaprayag, where the Pindar joins, Rudraprayag, where the Mandakini joins; and finally, Devprayag, where the Bhagirathi joins the Alaknanda to form the Ganges River.
