Finally, a break from North America!

Just a reminder that not every river is considered, far from this. Some of the empty regions on the map are drier deserts, however.

Try to guess every city in this basin with more than 200,000 people here!

It's actually Panjnad which means the same as Punjab, only nad (Sanskrit for river) instead of ab (Persian for water).

Great quiz though! Why do people don't take quizzes about South Asia? 😣

Thank you! I had a bad habit of combining these names throughout the editing process haha. South Asia is always such a great region to return to, there are so many distinct regions to learn about.
