Annapurna Range
Himalayan mountain range - I n south-central Asia, the ongoing collision between the Indian Plate and the Tibetian plate has raised up the world's most mountainous area, the Himalayan orogenic belt. The area began rising in the last 50 million years ago and continues to rise at about 5 mm a year as the collision continues. Since both plates were covered with lightweight continental crust, which tends to float on top of the heavier mantle layer, crust from both plates was crumpled together. In addition, the ocean floor between the two moving continents was swept up and stacked between them. The top of Mount Everest itself is sedimentary rock from the ocean's bottom.

The Himalayan mountain range contains the world's greatest accumulation of ice outside the Arctic and Antarctic. The world’s hundred tallest peaks are nearly all in the Himalayas, Karakoram, Pamirs, or the Hindu Kush. (A few exceptions are also in southern Asia, in China's Hengduan Mountains and Kunlun Shan.) The world's fourteen 8000-meter peaks are all in the Himalayas proper or the Karakoram.

The Himalayan mountain range extend over 1,500 miles (2,400 km) from the Indus Valley in the west to the Brahmaputra Valley in the east. They are between 100 and 250 kilometres wide. Himalaya range from the Indus River in Pakistan across northern India, Nepal, Sikkim and Bhutan.
Entities the range within includes Pakistan, China, India, Nepal, and Tibet. The world's highest peak, Mount Everest, and other "near−highest" peaks are part of the Greater Himalayas range.
The Himalayan mountain range (meaning "home of snow"), stretching from Pakistan to Bhutan, separates the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau. The world's highest peak, Mount Everest, at 29,029 feet, is in the Himalayas, as are scores of massive, beautiful, dangerous peaks climbers have given their lives to ascend. Their snowfields supply great rivers: the Ganges, the Indus, and the Brahmaputra.
