Location of Chautang River

Chautang river is a seasonal river in the state of Haryana, India. It is a remnant of the Drsadvati,and joins the Ghaggar-Hakra River east of Suratgarh.[1]

Tributary of Saraswati

This river was one of the main contributors to the Sarasvati river until the Yamuna changed its course.[2] However, as per recent studies Yamuna changed its course towards East some 50,000 to 10,000 years ago and Chautang is a rain-fed river and Yamuna is not pouring any water into it from last 10,000 years.[3]


The Drsadvati River has been identified by Oldham with the Chautang River.[4]
