The paper attempts to analyze, interpret, compare and contrast water quality of selected environmental parameters of the Subansiri river in the eastern Himalayas and the Alaknanda river in the western Himalayas. Standard methodologies (APHA, 1995) are adopted to analyze the data and obtain the values for the samples of both the rivers in summer season. The results of the analysis are compared with the drinking water quality standards such as WHO and BIS. It is found from the study that the water quality parameters show a similar trend in case of the ph and electrical conductivity but most of the parameters show dissimilarities in the eastern and western Himalayan basins.
