Pranhita (Marathi: प्राणहिता Telugu: ప్రాణహిత) is the River which flows on the border of Gadchiroli district in Maharashtra and Adilabad district in Telangana. Pranhita is the name given to the combined flow of the rivers Wardha and Wainganga.

The Wardha River joins Wainganga near Kouthala(near Sirpur kagaznagar). Water Transport : The River is used for water transport between Sironcha(MH) and Kaleswaram(TS).

This river starts from its tributary Wardha at Gadchiroli district in Maharashtra and flows into Adilabad district in Telangana state. This tributary combines with Wainganga near koutla and forms the river pranhita. This river supplies water to the eastern part of Adilabad district in Telangana and makes it rich in forest resources. Then the river pranhita will empty into the river Godavari. The river drains an area of 109,078 km2, emptying into the Godavari and providing almost 40% of Godavari's total flow. The River course is mainly through the dense forests which are rich in teak. (timber).
