the Atbarah/Tekezé river

more then the awash,jubba and Shebelle rivers


the river is the its last tributary of the nile river
Originating in the highlands of tigray and eritrea -the agazian land

in the rainy season Atbara is navigable and accounts for more than 20 percent of the Nile’s total water

t carries a heavy load of silt, and its banks are mainly badlands.



the river provide irrigation up to sudan newly built town of Halfa Dughaym in an otherwise fairly arid region and to resettle the Sudanese population driven away by the Aswan High Dam (Sad al-Aali) in Egypt, which flooded 500 km of the Nile Valley in southern Egypt and northern Sudan.
