- The Bhur River : The Bhur River originates from Gurungdo and flows through Bhur village located in Sidli tehsil of Chirang district in Assam and after entering Assam it forms a small river called Patikhola. The Bhur river flows through Salbari Bhurpar and takes two tributaries from the Phulkumari river on both its banks and joins the Dholpani River and finally it is known as Champabati River.
- The Dholpani River : The Dholpani River also originates from the hills of Bhutan and flows across the Bhutan-India border, before it carries the two tributaries Arne Khola River and Tiniabadhi River and finally joins the Champabati River.
