  • Published 4 months ago

With length of 4,160 miles (almost 7,000 kilometers), the Nile is the longest river in the world. Some cite the Amazon river as the longest, but it is very close.

In Ancient Egypt, people believed that Nile is the birthplace of Gods. The mythical history of Nile is astonishing, as many biblical events are closely related to the river.

With that in mind, the length of Nile is amazing, crossing in 9 countries, including Egypt, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Zaire. The average discharge of Nile is 3.1 million liters or 680,000 gallons per second.

Egypt was the birthplace of the western man, and a lot of that is closely linked with Nile.
