The Tapti River is the most prominent natural feature. Unlike the remainder of the Deccan, which has rivers that begin in the Western Ghats and flow eastward to the Bay of Bengal, the Tapti flows westward from its sources in eastern Maharashtra to the Arabian Sea. During its journey through Kandesh, the Tapti receives thirteen major tributaries.
None of the rivers are navigable, and the Tapti has a deep bottom that has historically made irrigation difficult. The Girna, Bori, and Panjhra, which are tributaries of the Tapti, drain the majority of Kandesh.
