Greater Himalaya

Himalaya Tour Package

The Greater Himalaya stretches from Ladakh southward to Spiti and on to Nanda Devi and Mount Everest in the east. The Western Himalayan which comprises Lahoul, Spiti and Zanskar has an area of 7734 square kilometers, with the altitude varying from 5000 metres to over 8500 metres. The Pir Panjal and the Outer Himalaya also join the Greater Himalaya range at Kullu near Deo Tibba (6001 metres) in Himachal Pradesh. Lahoul lies between these two Himalayan ranges. The Zanskar range, which lies to the northeast of Lahoul, separates the basin of Tibet from Himachal Pradesh. The western Himalaya, which includes Kullu, Manali and Lahoul, is the gateway to adventure in Himachal. The resplendent beauty of silvered summits, like those of Mulkilla massif (6518 metres), Chandra Bhaga group of peaks (over 6500 metres), Phobrang (6173 metres), Makarbeh (6070 metres) and Shikarbeh (6201 metres) makes climbing an unforgettable experience. In the Kullu valley the peaks worth attempting are Hanuman Tibba (5929 metres), Indrassan (6221 metres), Deo Tibba (6001 metres), Kullu Pumori (6365 metres), Ali Ratni Tibba (5465 metres) among others. On the bank of the Parvati river lies Manikaran, a place of pilgrimage for the Hindus with hot water springs and ancient temples.

Middle Himalaya: The Pir Panjal
The mid Himalayan chain commonly referred to as Pir Panjal, ranges from 4500 metres to 6500 metres in elevation and is spread over an area of 3574 square kilometers. The Pir Panjal,
which joins the Dhauladhar at Barabhangal and Kullu, is by and large encompassed by the Chenab and Ravi. The northern section is called Pangi and Chamba. Lahoul is a fairly isolated region. This range forms a second barrier with its peaks soaring beyond 6000 metres and the passes ranging between 4500 metres and 5500 metres.

Outer Himalaya: The Dhauladhar
The Dhauladhar, also known as the Lesser Himalaya, spreads from Dalhousie in the Chamba district to Barabhangal and Kullu and is demarcated by the river Beas to the south of Kullu. It has a mean height varying between 4000 metres and 5500 metres. The Outer Himalaya, which consists of the Kangra district excluding Barabhangal area which is part of the central Himalaya, has an area of 4066 square kilometers. To the north of the Shivaliks, the fertile Kangra valley runs transversely for about half the length of Himachal Pradesh. Behind this valley the first granite range of Dhauladhar rises abruptly to over 4500 metres. Further north lies the Pir Panjal range and then finally the Greater Himalayan range.

These three mountain ranges form the catchment area of Himachal Pradesh. They run almost parallel to one another and serve as the sources of the five main rivers of the state, the Beas, Sutlej, Ravi, Chenab and Yamuna.

The Beas originates from the Rahalla fall below Rohtang Pass and flows from Beas kund, its ultimate source below Sitidhar range in the Kullu valley. It divides Kullu from Lahoul and flowing southward it turns abruptly westward and after traversing the district of Mandi, enters Kangra. The Ravi and the Beas mark the boundary of Dhauladhar which spreads majestically over the Shivaliks and acts as a barrier between Kangra and Chamba. The Beas receives the drainage of the Kangra valley and then flows on to the plains of Punjab. The Spiti river forms the drainage network of the Spiti valley and joins the main -stream of the Sutlej at Khab below Shipkila. It springs from the famous Mansarover lake in the highlands of Tibet. From there it cuts across the Zanskar and the other Himalayan ranges at Shipkila forming deep and steep gorges and flows into the Bhakhara where this mighty river has been tamed by the Bhakhara dam and forms an artificial lake
