From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Lower Himalayan Range (also known as the Lesser Himalayan Range or Mahabharat Lekh) lies north of the Sub-Himalayan Range or Siwalik Range and south of the Great Himalayas. The height of the mountains varies between 1800 to 4600 meters. Thousands of years of folding, faulting and overthrusting has led to the formation of these mountains. They are a part of the three ranges that traverse from East to West in the Himalayas.


Geographical span


In Pakistan these mountains lie just north of Rawalpindi district covering the districts of Batagram, Mansehra and Abbottabad as well as Pakistan Administered Kashmir. These mountains are also home to Pakistan's important hill stations like Murree, Ghora Gali and Nathia Gali. It snows here during a few months of the year but there aren't any glaciers found in this region.


The range continues east through the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh.

Nepal, Bhutan, Eastern India

The range then enters the countries of Nepal and Bhutan, and then enters the eastern Indian states of West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
