Origin of Creation
In my last day in Kathmandu, Nepal I was little disappointed since I wanted to take some pictures before flying back but it was raining. Just came in the airport within rain and when our flight took-off it was still raining. But, ola; once airplane was up it was fascinating view through the window below :-) Usually I take aisle sit but that time I was in window (another unusual thing was that was my trip with our national carrier!!) and was fortunate to look and take some pictures :)
Some Info (source internet including wikipedia):
Definitely our flight was not directly over the Himalaya but I guess the mountains ranges were part of Himalaya anyway. As we know mighty Himalaya is the highest mountain ranges in the world and shaped the cultural, environmental backbone of the Indian subcontinent.
Some of the world's major and sub-continent´s holiest rivers, Ganges, Indus, Brahmaputra, Yangtze, Mekong, Salween, Red River (Asia), Xunjiang, Chao Phraya, Irrawaddy River, Amu Darya, Syr Darya, Tarim River and Yellow River, rise in the Himalayas, and their combined drainage basin is home to some 3 billion people (almost half of Earth's population). Himalayan rivers are naturally snow-fed & rain-fed and thus provides constant flow throughout the year.
It was fascinating experience to look into the origin and creations of so many water streams, which might later combined is rivers and thinking about all these!!!
PS: Photos are taken through the airplane window and might not in high
