 Its source is near Gurla Mandhata peak, south of Manasarovar in Tibet (river of the trans-Himalayan origin). 

It is known as the Karnaili in Western Nepal.

After collecting the waters of its tributaries – Tila, Seti and Beri, it comes out of the mountain, cutting a deep gorge at Shishapani.

The river has a high flood frequency and has shifted its course several times.
