Gash River

Gash River

Arabic  Nahr Al-qāsh, 

      river rising in southern Eritrea, near Asmara. After flowing southward, it turns west and forms the border between Eritrea (north) and Ethiopia (south) along its middle course. It then continues into northeastern Sudan to lose itself in the desert. In time of flood it reaches the Atbara River. It is known as the Mareb on its upper course and is used for irrigation around Teseney, in Eritrea, and around Kassalā, in The Sudan. The Gash River has a total course of about 300 miles (480 km).
