Kashmir & The Himalayas

Kashmir & The Himalayas

The Himalayas is the world's mightiest mountain range. No other chain can boast summits of over 8,000 metres - there are 14 such peaks in the Greater Himalaya - and hundreds over 7,000 metres. It stretches 2,700km across the subcontinent from Assam to Pakistan; in the east, Namche Barwa stands sentinel, while the west is guarded by the awesome Nanga Parbat. The term Himalaya means 'Abode of Snow' and its icy peaks and ridges have long since inspired the poets.
