Himilayan Mountainsby Amber Myers

Many people have visited and toured the Himilayan Mountains which stretches from India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. It has 10 highest peaks of the world, which includes Mount Everest. Five major mountains that form the Himalayans are K2, Mount Everest, Nanga Parbat Peak, Annapurna, and Kanchenjunga.


Some of the reasons why people have been so fascinated by the Indian Himalayas is because of the Hindu pilgrim routes, the low valleys that rise up in high mountain ranges, the lovely trekking hikes, densely forested areas lying just a mountain range away from barren cold deserts, and the lovely people of the mountains with their unique hospitable lifestyles.

The numbers of tourists visiting India itself has risen from 800,00 in 1980 to 1.8 million in 1993.

In these hills, Nature's hospitality eclipses all men can ever do. The enchanting beauties of the himalayas, their bracing climate and the soothing green that envelope you leaves nothing more to be desired. I wonder whether the scenery of these hills and the climate are to be surpassed, if qualified, by any of the beauty spots of the world.-- Mahatma Gandhi
