Nile river

River Nile (Arabic: النيل, an Ancient iteru-nil, or Ḥ'pī Egyptian, Coptic piaro or phiaro) is a river that flows north-large in North Africa, generally regarded as the world's longest river. It is 6650 km (4130 miles).

Nile has two major tributaries, the White Nile and Blue Nile. The latter is the source of most water and fertile soil. The first is the length. White Nile rises in the Great Lakes region of Central Africa, with the most distant source in southern Rwanda 2 ° 16'55 .92 "S 29 ° 19'52 .32" E / 2.2822 ° S 29.3312 ° E / - 2.2822; 29.3312. It flows north through Tanzania, Lake Victoria, Uganda and southern Sudan. Blue Nile starts at Lake Tana in Ethiopia at 12 ° 2'8 .8 "N 37 ° 15'53 .11" E / 12.035778 ° N 37.2647528 ° E / 12.035778, 37.2647528, and flows into Sudan from the southeast. The two rivers meet near the Sudanese capital Khartoum.

The northern part of the river flows almost entirely through desert, from Sudan to Egypt, a country whose civilization has depended on the river since ancient times. Most of the population and the cities of Egypt is located along parts of the Nile valley north of Aswan, and almost all cultural and historical sites of Ancient Egypt are found along the river bank. Nile ends with a large delta that empties into the Mediterranean Sea.


You have very well elaborated about river Nile with beautiful pictures in your post. As we know that river Nile is very longest river in the world. I went there with my family members to spend my holidays. My Nile Tours was mind blowing. Keep Blogging.
