The Himalayan mountain reach is the youngest on the planet
India was at one time an island. More than 100 million years back, when dinosaurs wandered the earth, the majority of what is presently India was an island.
It had severed from an old supercontinent alluded to as Gondwanaland by paleogeographers (named after Gondwana, a forested region of focal India), and was moving gradually northwards.
Around 50 million years back, dinosaurs at this point wiped out, the India mainland plate slammed into Asia, clasping the seaside territory of both landmasses and making the Himalayas – the world’s most youthful real mountain range – and, obviously, the most astounding.
Proof of this antiquated history is given by fossilized ocean shells that can in any case be discovered high in the mountains. The plate on which the subcontinent rests keeps on squeezing gradually northwards, and is the motivation behind why the stature of Mount Everest increments somewhat consistently.
