Geographical Division

Land | Mountains | Rivers | States 

The Indian sub continent has several distinct physical divisions. They can be classified under the following

  • The northern mountains( The Himalayan Mountains): Has some of the tallest peaks in the world which are mostly covered with snow throughout the year. Many big rivers originate from the Himalayas. 

  • The fertile plains of the Ganga (The Indo- Gangetic Plain): The plains lie to the south of the Himalayas between the Indus and the Ganga river. This region extending from Punjab to Assam is a densely populated area and produces the major part of the country's food grains and is referred to as the 'Food Bowl of India'

  • The desert region (The Thar Desert): The north western part of India is made up of the Thar desert and occupies most of Western Rajasthan. 

  • The plateaus (The Malwa, the Chotanagpur and the Deccan Plateau) : The plateaus are separated from the Northern plains by mountains and hill ranges including the Vindhyas, Aravalli, Satpura, Maikala and Ajanta. The Deccan plateau with its rolling hills and numerous rivers, occupies most part of central and southern India.

  • The coastal plains (The Eastern and the Western Coastal Plains): They are narrow strips of plain land that lie on either side along the coast of the peninsula, beyond the ghats. The Eastern Coastal plains includes the Coromandel Coast in the south and the Western Coastal plains includes the Konkan, Kankara, and the Malabar coasts.

  • The Two Ghats (Eastern and the Western Ghats): The Ghats are mountain ranges on the east and west coasts of the subcontinent. To the east and west of the Deccan plateau lie the Eastern Ghat and the Western Ghat, respectively.  

  • The Islands ( The Andaman and Nicobar, the Lakshadweep Islands): Lakshadweep lies in the   Arabian Sea on the west of the Indian Peninsula and Andaman and Nicobar in the Bay of Bengal on the east.

The Indo gangetic plains, the desert region and the Himalayas together form the North India and the south peninsula with the coastal plains, the two ghats and the Deccan Plateau form the South India.
