“The Himalayas, which literally means the abode of snow, is the youngest and the highest range of fold mountains in the world. In India it extends in the east from the borders of Myanmar to where the Indus divides it from the Hindukush and Karakoran ranges, covering a distance of about 2500 km.
The Himalayas include over fifty mountains exceeding 7,200 m (23,600 ft) in elevation, including ten of the fourteen 8,000-metre peaks.
Great Himalayas, also called Higher Himalayas or Great Himalaya Range, highest and northernmost section of the Himalayan mountain ranges. Mount Everest is on the crest of the Great Himalayas of southern Asia. It lies on the border between Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
A mountain symbolizes constancy, permanence, motionlessness. Its peak spiritually signifies the state of absolute consciousness, and climbing a mountain depicts inner elevation.”
