    Top 10 Longest Rivers of the world

    A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. It is a part of the hydrological cycle; water generally collects in a river from precipitation through a drainage basin from surface runoff and other sources such as groundwater recharge, springs, and the release of stored water in natural ice and snowpack (e.g., from glaciers).
