We all know Mount Everest, but the Himalayas are so much more. In fact, without this massive mountain range, most of India would be as dry as it can be.
The Himalayas are like a comb for water. They draw the water out of the warm moist air that is coming from the ocean.
And that is why right behind it is a desert. But that desert fulfills it’s own destiny.
It has been the subject of some of the best stories of exploration and adventure. Alexander the Great fought one of his greatest battles right here.
So you see how important this mountain range is. And that is why we are striving to keep it in the best possible condition.
