The Lord of the Mountains - The Mighty Himalayas

Posted by
Sathya (Chennai, India) on 14 March 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This image is of the Great Himalayan mountain range which runs across the Ladakh district of Jammu and Kashmir, (one of the states in) India. The Himalayan range is home to the planet's highest peaks, including the highest, Mount Everest (at 29029 feet). The Himalayas include over a hundred mountains exceeding 7,200 meters (23,600 feet) in height. The Himalayas cross five countries: India, Nepal, Bhutan, China, and Pakistan. Three of the world's major rivers, the Indus, the Ganges and the Brahmaputra, rise in the Himalayas. You can witness the might and magnitude of the Himalayas by visiting Ladakh in India. It will leave you speechless for sure, with its sheer endless presence and diversity.
