Which Mountain Range borders India?

The great Himalayan system borders India from North to East. It forms a barrier between the Plateau of Tibet to the north and the alluvial plains of the Indian subcontinent to the south. 

The Himalayas themselves stretch uninterruptedly for about 1,550 miles (2,500 km) from west to east between Nanga Parbat in the Pakistani-administered portion of the Kashmir region, and Namjagbarwa (Namcha Barwa) Peak in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China. 

The Himalayas are bordered to the northwest by the mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush and the Karakoram and to the north by the high and vast Plateau of Tibet.

The Himalayas include the highest mountains in the world, with more than 110 peaks rising to elevations of 24,000 feet (7,300 metres) or more above sea level.
