This animated geography video explores the Himalayas, a mountain range in Asia, separating India from the Tibetan Plateau. The snow-capped range has some of the planet's highest peaks, including Qomolangma (Mount Everest), the highest. It is one of the youngest mountain ranges on Earth, made of uplifted metamorphic and sedimentary rock. These peaks were formed by plate tectonic movement, which is continuing today and still causing earthquakes. Melting glaciers form rivers here and in other mountain ranges like the Rockies and the Andes.
