Alps: The Hindu Analysis

  • The Alps are a small section of a discontinuous mountain chain that extends from the Atlas Mountains in North Africa to the Himalayas in southern Europe and Asia.
  • The Alpine region includes eight European countries: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Slovenia and Switzerland.
  • The Alps are an interzonal mountain system (orobiome) or a “transition area” between central and Mediterranean Europe.
  • Mont Blanc is the highest peak.
  • Although they are not as high and widespread as other mountain systems formed during the Paleogene and Neogene periods (i.e. about 65 million to 2.6 million years ago), such as the Himalayas (the great mountain system of Asia) and the Andes and the Rocky Mountains (respectively the south in America and North America) but they are responsible for major geographical events.
  • Alpine peaks separate one European region from another and are the source of many of Europe’s major rivers.
  • The waters of rivers originating from the Alps eventually reach the North, the Mediterranean, the Adriatic and the Black Sea.
