In mobile ad hoc network (MANET), congestion is one of the most important limitations that affect the performance of the whole network. Multi-path routing protocol can balance and share the load better than the single path routing protocol in ad hoc networks, hereby reducing the congestion possibility by dividing the traffic in alternative paths. The performance of the network can be improved by using a burden harmonizing mechanism. Such a mechanism transfers load from overloaded nodes to under loaded nodes. The objective of multipath routing is to improve the reliability and throughput and favors burden harmonizing. Multipath routing allows the establishment of multiple paths between a pair of source and destinationnode. It is typically proposed in order to increase the reliability of data transmission or to provide burden harmonizing and has received more and more attentions. In this paper, some of the congestion removing and burden harmonizing routing schemes have been surveyed. The relative strengths and weaknesses of the protocols have also been studied which allow us to identify the areas for future research.
