[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lower Himalayan Range (also known as the Lesser Himalayan Range or Mahabharat Lekh) lies north of the Sub-Himalayan Range or Siwalik Range and south of the Great Himalayas. The height of the mountains varies between 1800 to 4600 meters. Thousands of years of folding, faulting and overthrusting has led to the formation of these mountains. They are a part of the three ranges that traverse from East to West in the Himalayas.


The range continues east through the Indian states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh.

Hello Ram,
You have chosen a very special point of view to present the Lower Himalayan range emerging behind another range of lower mountains which after your note should be the Sub-Himalayan range. Most beautiful mountain area.
Kind regards
