The Himalayas are the highest mountain chain in the world, rising up to more than 8000m. It separates the Indian Subcontinent from the Tibetian plateau. To the south it's covered in monsoon rainforest and drier forest higher up. To the north the valleys are very dry and even desert-like. Birdlife varies with altitude and climate and is generally rich.
