  • Today i am telling a small story about Himalayas may be you don't know it,

    250 million years ago Earth land was single large continent, which was surrounded by large ocean.
    Around 200 million years ago, a sudden change happen in climate, A big sea formed in the place of Himalayas now. The sea name was Tethys.

    Due to climate change Tethys sea converted into Himalayas.
    The Himalayas were formed around 70 million years ago, when the Indo-Australian Plate collided with the Eurasian Plate at a convergent/destructive plate boundary. This has caused fold mountains to form as there are no subductions of the plates that can be seen from the absence of volcanoes in the Himalayas.
    Mount everest is one of the peak in Himalayas

    Mount Everest - is the highest mountain on Earth above Sea level, and the highest point on the Earth's continental Crust, as measured by the height above Sea level of its summit 48 metres (29,029 ft).
