The Himalayas are also known as the "Roof of the World". They are in fact the world's highest mountain range.

Discover The summits

Ten summits are over 26,240 feet and over 100 of them tower at 22,960 feet: you may as well say that Nepal offers mountainous landscapes of breathtaking beauty. The country breaks the records of difference in heights: less than 100 miles away from the Ganges, the Himalayan range stands high enough to be the roof of the world, "the abode of snow" in popular mythology. To admire the summits, go to Nagarkot, 15 miles east of Kathmandu. This natural amphitheatre offers an unforgettable view of the Himalayan range.
