View of the Himalayas, 1963, by James Burke.

The Himalayas are a mountain range in south-central Asia located within the nations of India, China (Tibet), Nepal and Bhutan.

The range contains the three highest peaks in the world: Mount Everest, K2 and Kangchenjunga. The Himalayas formed as a result of the collision of the Arabian and the Australian-Indian tectonic plates. The mountains are still rising as a result of this ongoing collision. [1]

The Himalayas are a center of Buddhism, and especially the segment of Buddhism associated with the Dalai Lama.
