The Himalaya, literally translated as Land of Snow, is the great mountain system of Asia, home to the highest peaks in the world. The system forms a 1500 mile broad crescent through Northeastern Pakistan, Northern India, Southern Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. It is bordered on the north by the high plateau of Central Asia and on the south by the fertile plains of the Indian subcontinent.
   
   
 
Although theoretically, the area, formed around 50 million years ago, is one of the youngest mountain ranges on Earth, in terms of the history of mankind, it is said to be home to some the earliest civilizations that ever existed. The valleys of the Indus and Brahmaputra rivers that originate from the 'Mansarovar' at Kailash, are commonly referred to as birthplaces of civilization...and as per folklore, it was in these high mountains that Noah's Ark had docked and life started rebuilding after the Great Flood.

The region’s ancient name “Dev Bhumi,” which means “Land of the Gods,” is no misnomer. The grandeur of the towering peaks, glaciers, and vast valleys is so breathtaking that it was considered the abode of the Gods in ancient India. Here one can hear a story for every mountain, river and tree. Peaks are named after Hindu Gods, Godesses and Holy Deities and are worshipped as such.
