About the Himalayas

Himalaya: the resource provider and protector of the north/northeastern parts of India and other eastern countries. The Himalayas is the wonder of nature. Its high snow-clad mountains, rich flora and fauna, and scenic beauty have enchanted one and all.

The hilly vegetation gives it immense beauty yet makes life little tough for the Himalayan people. It's true, the people of Himalaya have a warrior spirit.

Himalaya is home to almost 44 million population, the Himalayan nation has a varied and diverse culture based on the different region and terrain they live in. The major religions followed are Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

The population is adaptable to the varied climate change and harsh weather. People in some parts have a nomadic lifestyle because of the extreme cold and lack of resources. The basic occupation is farming and animal husbandry. People live the quality of life by consuming healthy food and physically working. Himalayan women are considered very strong with not only taking care of family and house but also physically working in the fields.

Trade and tourism also provide the vast majority of the economy to the region. Farming of tea, sugarcane, rice, wheat, apricot, almond etc. is done and the major technique of farming used is terrace farming.

In the foothills, the culture seems to be eroded and the lifestyle is similar to the rest of the word. In mountains, houses are made of mud and mitti ka choola is still used for cooking. The culture is still preserved in the higher altitude because of low connectivity with external influences.
