Himalayas

Of the 25 highest peaks of the world, 19 are in the Himalayas.

The Himalayas cover 229,000 square miles.

Himalayas means "home of snow."

Lord Clydesdale flew a Westland PV-3 biplane over Mount Everest on April 3, 1933, the first ever flight over the mountain.  It was also the first detailed and scientific survey of the Himalaya region.


The highest bridge in the world is located in the Himalayas. It was built by the Indian Army, in 1982, and is about 5,600 meters above sea level.
