        The Himalaya Mountains were formed from a collision of tectonic plates. The mountain formation primarily occurred in three phases that began about 50 million to 70 million years ago and most recently occurred about , years ago.

The Lesser Himalayan Sequence (LHS), delimited to the south by the Main Boundary Thrust (MBT) with the Siwaliks on the underthrust side, is about 20–35 km wide and records low-grade metamorphism, and metamorphic intensity increases to the north and northeast. B.K.

Himalayas - Himalayas - Physical features: The most characteristic features of the Himalayas are their soaring heights, steep-sided jagged peaks, valley and alpine glaciers often of stupendous size, topography deeply cut by erosion, seemingly unfathomable river gorges, complex geologic structure, and series of elevational belts (or zones) that display different ecological associations of flora.

The Himalayan mountain belt, which developed during the India–Asia collision starting about 55 Ma ago, is a dramatically active orogen and it is regarded as the classic collisional orogen. It is characterized by an impressively continuous km of tectonic units, thrusts and normal faults, as well as large volumes of high-grade metamorphic.

The Geology of the Himalaya is a record of the most dramatic and visible creations of modern plate tectonic forces. The Himalayas, which stretch over km are the result of. Minimum shortening in the sedimentary thrust sheets of the Outer and Lesser Himalaya is km or 65%.

As a first approximation, we have also restored the crystalline sheets in order to obtain shortening estimates for the entire Himalaya. Minimum shortening for the Himalaya after restoring the MCT sheet varies from (76%) to km (79%). Himalayas - Himalayas - Study and exploration: The earliest journeys through the Himalayas were undertaken by traders, shepherds, and pilgrims.

The pilgrims believed that the harder the journey was, the nearer it brought them to salvation or enlightenment; the traders and shepherds, though, accepted crossing passes as high as 18, to 19, feet (5, to 5, metres) as a way of life.

This study presents a geochemical investigation of Tikak Parbat and Tipam Sandstone Formations occurring in and around Dilli area, Sivasagar, Assam. Petrographically Tikak Parbat and Tipam sandstones are mainly quartzose arenite to sublitharenite types with their constituents being derived from recycled orogen provenance under sub-humid to humid climatic conditions.

The geology of the Himalaya is a record of the most dramatic and visible creations of modern plate tectonic forces. The Himalayas, which stretch over km between the Namcha Barwa syntaxis in Tibet and the Nanga Parbat syntaxis in Kashmir, are the result of an ongoing orogeny — the result of a collision of the continental crust of two tectonic plates.

The soils found in the Himalayas are diverse in character depending upon altitude, vegetation cover, slope, structure and stage. The major soil groups in the Himalayas are brown hill soil, sub-mountain soils, mountain meadow soil and red loamy soils, apart from other less significant types.

Most of the soils in this region are acidic in nature. Origin: The highest and youngest mountain range in the world, the Himalayas are a geologic marvel that occurred when the Indo-Australian plate collided into the underbelly of the Eurasian plate, about 70 million years ago.

The Tethys Sea that had existed in the location, disappeared, and as the Indian landmass continued to ram into Asia, the soft sediments that had lain at the bottom of the.

Butwal’s close proximity to India has long made it a major cultural and trade center between India and Nepal and, in the early 19th century, it was a center of pro-British sentiment. Also of note, inancient hominoid fossils, including a million-year-old tooth, were discovered here.
