The five confluences, known as the Panch Prayag, are all along the Alaknanda. They are, in downstream order,
- 1. Vishnuprayag, where the Dhauliganga joins the Alaknanda;
- 2. Nandprayag, where the Nandakini joins;
- 3. Karnaprayag, where the Pindar joins,
- 4. Rudraprayag, where the Mandakini joins;
- 5. Devprayag, where the Bhagirathi joins the Alaknanda to form the Ganges River proper.
