The North and North-eastern Mountains
The North and Northeastern Mountains consist of the Himalayas and the Northeastern hills.
The Himalayas consist of a series of parallel mountain ranges.
Some of the important ranges are the Greater Himalayan range, which includes the Great Himalayas and the Trans-Himalayan range, the Middle Himalayas and the Shiwalik.
The general orientation of these ranges is from northwest to the southeast direction in the northwestern part of India.
Himalayas in the Darjiling and Sikkim regions lie in an east-west direction, while in Arunachal Pradesh they are from southwest to the northwest direction.
In Nagaland, Manipur and Mizoram, they are in the north-south direction.
The approximate length of the Great Himalayan range, also known as the central axial range, is 2,500 km from east to west, and their width varies between 160-400 km from north to south.
On the basis of relief, alignment of ranges and other geomorphological features, the Himalayas can be divided into the following sub-divisions:
Kashmir or Northwestern Himalayas
Himachal and Uttaranchal Himalayas
Darjiling and Sikkim Himalayas
Eastern Hills and Mountains.
Kashmir or Northwestern Himalayas:
It comprises a series of ranges such as the Karakoram, Ladakh, Zanskar and Pir Panjal.
The northeastern part of the Kashmir Himalayas is a cold desert, which lies between the Greater Himalayas and the Karakoram ranges.
Between Zaskar and the Pir Panjal range, lies the world-famous Valley of Kashmir and the famous Dal Lake.
Important glaciers of South Asia such as the Baltoro and Siachen are also found in this region.
The Kashmir Himalayas are also famous for Karewa formations, which are useful for the cultivation of Zafran, a local variety of saffron.
Karewas are the thick deposits of glacial clay and other materials embedded with moraines.
Some of the important passes of the region are Zoji La on the Great Himalayas, Banihal on the Pir Panjal, Photu La on the Zaskar and Khardung La on the Ladakh range.
Some of the important fresh lakes such as Dal and Wular and saltwater lakes such as Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri are also in this region.
The landscape of Himalayas is a major source of attraction for adventure tourists. Some famous places of pilgrimage such as Vaishno Devi near Jammu in Katra, Amarnath Cave in Anantnag, Charar-e-Sharif found here.
Srinagar, the Capital city of the state of Jammu and Kashmir is located on the banks of Jhelum River. Dal Lake in Srinagar presents an interesting physical feature.
Jhelum in the valley of Kashmir is still in its youth stage and yet forms meander–a typical feature associated with the mature stage in the evolution of fluvial landform.
