Why does the Nile River run North?
it does because were it starts is high land and were it ends is lower. its highland in the south so it must go downland to the north. Bill
It does not. Actually it does. I'm in 6th grade and learning about that.The Nile flows upstream because of gravity. The majority of the Nile runs south to north because of gravity. However, there are also parts of the river that run north to south, ex. about 200 miles in Sudan. At no point, however, can the river run upstream. Upstream by definition is opposite the flow of the river (Merriam-Webster).
