The Neelum (formerly known as the Kishan Ganga) is a river of the Himalayan region; it is 150 kilometres long and joins the Jhelum at Domel in the Himalayas. The river drains water from Himalayan ranges between 15,000 and 20,000 feet high which are perpetually covered by snow and glaciers while the scenery of the lower reaches of the river is characterised by majestic pine, fir and deodar trees.
