The Himalayas well might be the crowning achievement of the Indo-Australian plate. India in the Oligocene crashed head-on into Tibet, hit so hard that it not only folded and buckled the plate boundaries but also plowed into the newly created Tibetan plateau and drove the Geology Tour in Himalayas five and a half miles into the sky. Isn’t it incredible to find out that the summit of these peaks is still marine limestones?
The Himalayas has attracted geologist and seekers from around the world to witness the geography in the making; the tectonic movements are very common among the highly unstable youngest mountain range in the world.
The Lesser Himalayas are a physiography province juxtaposed against the Siwaliks by the Main Boundary Thrust and against the Greater or High Himalayas by the Main Central Thrust. Uttarakhand has an enormous diversity of landscapes rich rock and soil formation. Possibly as much as 20,000 feet below the sea floor, the skeletal remains had turned into rock. This one fact is a treatise in itself on the movements of the surface of the earth.
