Hills & Mountains
The Himalayan mountain range is the World’s highest, and among the youngest, with stunning scenery, picturesque ‘hill stations’, barren high altitude deserts and rolling foothills. The mountains run from east to west, separating the Indian subcontinent from the vast Tibetan plateau, and the region is deeply rooted in Buddhism, with charming villages and monasteries perched in barely accessible locations.
Several major rivers originate in the mighty Himalaya, including the Indus, the Brahmaputra, and the sacred Ganges. The mountains offer a challenge for trekkers of all abilities, and an ethereal setting for the more spiritually inclined. The cool fresh air of the Himalaya is perfect for anyone wanting a bit of time to ‘chill out’ at the end of a busy holiday.
