Teesta

The river Teesta or Tista is one of the main Himalayan rivers and most important river system in Sikkim and North Bengal originating from the glaciers of Northern Sikkim at an elevation of 8500 m above the mean sea level. The river is fed by the glaciers viz. Zemu, Changame Khanpu, Talung etc.

It is an international river, which flows through the states of Sikkim and West Bengal in the Indian Territory and then to Bangladesh. Apart from its varied landscape Teesta forms a diverse ecosystem throughout its more than 200kms long journey from high mountainous region of Sikkim to the low land of North Bengal. Teesta flows freely, fearlessly and ferociously too.

For years Teesta has been worshipped as a natural deity by the thousands of inhabitants, who grow and prosper with it. For many people of Sikkim and North Bengal Teesta is the livelihood as it provides fertile lands to grow crops, as it provides the base for Rafting, the popular adventure sports in the region, and also river camping. This has changed suddenly and significantly with attempts of taming the river by building of a series of dams on Teesta for the sake of generating Power.
