The highest mountain range on Earth, the Himalayas from the northern border of the Indian subcontinent in Asia. The mountains extend in a massive arc for about 1.550 miles from west to east with more than 30 peaks rising to heights greater than 24000 feet above sea level. Together, the Himalayan mountain system is the planet's highest and home to all fourteen of the world's highest peaks. One of the high biodiversity regions of the world, it provides shelter to a large variety of flora and fauna. The Himalayan region has a rich and unique cultural heritage, and has managed to preserve its established traditions throughout history whilst absorbing customs, traditions and ideas from both invaders and immigrants. Many cultural practices, languages, customs and monuments are examples of this co-mingling over centuries. The encyclopaedic work in five volumes - Introduction to Himalayas, Bhutan Himalayas, Indian Himalayas, Nepal Himalayas and Tibetan Himalayas - provides the reader a comprehensive tour of one of nature's most astounding and wondrous marvels. Exploring the Malayan range in its vast constitution, this work delves deep into the heart of this mountain range. With a comprehensive account of a most breathtaking landscape, it is hoped that this work would be an interesting read to students, research scholars, policy planners, social scientists, administrators, travellers and general readers.
