How did the himalaya mountains form?

There is wide agreement among geologists that the Himalayas began forming roughly 50-70 million years ago when the northward-moving Indo-Australian tectonic plate began colliding with the relatively stationary Eurasian Plate. The boundary of the collision is called the Tibetan Plateau, which was shattered and pushed upward to form the great Himalyan peaks such as Mt Everest.

The Indo-Australian Plate continues to be driven northward, sliding under the Tibetan Plateau at the rate of about 6.7 cm (2.6 inches) per year and causes the Plateau to continue to be pushed upward. The Indo-Australian Plate has slowed to less than half of its original velocity, but it appears likely that it will continue moving northward for roughly another 10 million years, creating a Himalayan-like landscape as far north as 1500 km (930 miles) from the present range of mountains.

How does the Himalayas affect India's climate?

1. The Himalayan range affects the climate of India by blocking the cold, arctic winds blowing south from Siberia and Central Asia, thus keeping the Indian subcontinent much warmer than corresponding temperate regions in other continents.

2. The Himalayas form a natural barrier that prevents monsoon winds from going further north.

3. The Himalayas also had a role to play in the formation of Central Asian deserts such as the Gobi.

What is the Rakaposhi mountain?

Located in Pakistan.

Rakaposhi is the name of a high Karakoram mountain massif and the huge pyramid peak which tops this massif. The mountain dominates the Hunza Valley west of K2, its steep ice-covered peak towering above barren cliffs and terraces. Rakaposhi's climate is generally more favorable than that of the Himalayas, as it is located far enough west to be only minimally affected by the monsoon in July and August. In fact, long periods of exceptional weather are not uncommon throughout the summer.
