A view of Sapt Kosi river from the Mahendra highway, a flood control sluice is visible in the background, Kosi dams were built between 1958 and 1962, they have 52 gates. Koshi Tappu wildlife sanctuary is a protected area covering 175 km2 of wetlands, it protects a rich biodiversity, in the river itself live among others the sousouc(Platanista gangetica), the gavial(Gavialis gangeticus) and the marsh crocodile (Crocodylus palustris).

This is a lovely area also for animals.
Through the control of water can everything perfect work.
We see clear the gates in background.
Pictures out of the nature are always wonderful.
Also through the pleasant colours get a lovely image.
Excellent composition, nice presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

As John mentioned, its amazing what people can do when controlling water, and its a nice thing that they have created this fine natural scene. The yellow sand is very striking, and I like that we can see right out to the distant mountains.
Have a great day

Amazing landscape - the vegetation - the Cows on the river bank - the bridge/dam in the distance all creating an interesting image... I would not like to meet up with a crocodile though... even though my husband thinks it is funny to say that he would have a good feed....ha! ha!.

Low water level on teh artificial lake is notable, along with the wide view of what men-made earth formation.
I tend to think this was taken from a bus window, my opinion only.
Clarity and DOF were well collected.

I might have been tempted to completely blur the powerlines. There are no trees or other complicated bits nearby so it should be an easy job in Photoshop. The turquoise colour of the water is incredible and I know from visiting Canada, NZ & here, that it is rock flour and completely natural and NOT oversaturated. Tfs!

Another fine shot from this area of Nepal. Beautiful warm golden colours on the land and clear blue sky broken up with tree covered mountain range.this looks like a very large river bing well controlled for the inhabitants of the wetlands.
