The Rangeet River is a tributary of River Teesta, the largest river at Sikkim. It originates in the mountains of Himalayas in West Sikkim and flows past the towns of Jorethang, Pelling and Legship. It is a perennial river and obtains its waters from the melting summer snow of Himalayas and the rains of monsoon.
