Himalaya Mountains Tours & Trips India
The Himalayas, the abode of snow, are the youngest and the highest range of fold mountains globally. In India, it extends in the east from the borders of Myanmar to where the Indus divides it from the Hindukush and Karakoram ranges, covering a distance of more than 2500 kms.
The Himalayas consist of three parallel ranges, the Greater Himalayas known as the Himadri; the Lesser Himalayas called the Himachal, and the Shivalik hills, which comprise the foothills.
Some of the highest peaks in the world are present in the Himalayas, which lie south of the Tibetan Plateau. India also has many other mountain ranges such as the Karakoram Range, the Aravali Range and many different minor ranges in the Deccan Plateau.
The northern mountains in the north of India extend from northwest to northeast of India. The Himalayas, the Karakoram mountains and the northeastern mountain ranges are called the Northern Mountain.
