Himalayas
The Himalayas are bordered on the north by the Tibetan Plateau, on the south by the Indo-Gangetic Plain, on the northwest by the Karakoram and Hindu Kush ranges and on the east by the Indian states of Sikkim, the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur.
The Hindu Kush, Karakoram and Himalayas together form the "Hindu Kush Himalayan Region" (HKH).[2][3][4] The western anchor of the Himalayas, Nanga Parbat, lies just south of the northernmost bend of the Indus River; the eastern anchor, Namcha Barwa, is just west of the great bend of the Yarlung Tsangpo River. The Himalayas span five countries: Nepal, India, Bhutan, China (Tibet), and Pakistan. The first three countries having sovereignty over
most of the range.

Lifted by the collision of the Indian tectonic plate with the Eurasian Plate,[6] the Himalayan range runs northwest to southeast in a 2,400-kilometre (1,500 mi)
-long arc. The range varies in width from 400 kilometres (250 mi) in the west to 150 kilometres (93 mi) in the east. Besides the Greater Himalayas, there are
several parallel lower ranges. The southernmost, along the northern edge of the Indian plains and reaching 1000 m in altitude, is the Sivalik Hills. Further
north is a higher range, reaching 2000-3000 m, known as the Lower Himalayan Range.

Three of the world's major rivers (the Indus, the Ganges and the Brahmaputra) arise in the Himalayas. While the Indus and the Brahmaputra rise near Mount Kailash in Tibet, the Ganges rises in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Their combined drainage basin is home to some 600 million people.

Himalayas - The Enchanting Mesmerizer!

India
The world famous Dharamshala is a popular hill station located in the Kangra district known for its idyllic surroundings amidst pine trees, tea 
gardens and snow capped mountains. It is also home to His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. The word Dharamshala means, an inn attached to a temple. 
The Hindu inhabitants of the region are the Gaddis who worship Shiva and Durga. Dharamshala was developed as a summer retreat for the British and 
their troops, who had seized control of the town in 1848. It later became the administrative capital of Kangra in 1852. However, its days of glory 
were short lived, as the town suffered a serious setback and the loss of many lives with the earthquake of 1905.

You will also visit a popular tourist destination situated on the national highway that leads to Leh, called Manali and which is also the gateway 
to the remote and desolate valleys of Lahaul and Spiti. Today, much of the main town centre, which is based around its bus terminal, is a hotchpotch 
of thoughtless construction, an overcrowded bazaar and much like any other popular destination. However, pack a rucksack, venture out a little into the 
countryside and you see all of its natural charm in abundance - the beautiful Beas river, ancient temples, hot water springs. Lahual and Spiti, 
are twin valleys situated on the north eastern extremity of Himachal Pradesh, bordering Tibet.

Rugged mountains and white snow peaks add to Lahaul's barren yet spellbinding beauty. Lying at an altitude of 2,745 m, Lahual offers endless treks for 
adventure enthusiasts, earning it the reputation of being the ultimate trekking destination. The valley is also famous for its Buddhist monasteries.

This adventure tour package offers 21 days Jeep Safari from Delhi to Manali, Leh, Jispa, Pang, Stok with the trekking option for 4 days. While on the trip 
you'll discover some most picturesque places that are also known as dream destinations in Northern India!
