India - October 18th, 2011

Some haze is visible in northern India, just south of the Himalayas. This high mountain range separates the separating the Indian subcontinent from the Tibetan Plateau (visible above, dotted with lakes).

The main Himalayan range runs west to east, from the Indus river valley to the Brahmaputra river valley, forming an arc 2,400 km (1,500 mi) long, which varies in width from 400 km (250 mi) in the western Kashmir-Xinjiang region to 150 km (93 mi) in the eastern Tibet-Arunachal Pradesh region.
