Untitled[edit]

It said the average for the range was 900 - 1200 meters. But the highest point in the whole range is only just over 1200 meters, so the average must be a lot smaller. (I think what was really meant was: the height of the peaks varies from 900 to 1200 meters.) I changed it a little, but I think it's still not quite accurate. Prater 18:23, 16 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Siwaliks mostly below 1,000 meters[edit]

Probably about 600 meters in many areas. Also they extend across Nepal and I think even Sikkim too. Apparently the Siwalik and Mahabharat ranges disappear in the far eastern Himalaya, where the various himalayan sub-ranges are compressed together.

It's probably important to discuss the Siwaliks as a sub-range of the Himalaya, along with the higher Mahabharat range to the north, and the Dun or Inner-Terai valleys that often lie between the Siwalik and Mahabharat ranges.

WP:INDIA Banner/Uttarakhand workgroup Addition[edit]

Note: {{WP India}} Project Banner with Uttarakhand workgroup parameters was added to this article talk page because the article falls under Category:Uttarakhand or its subcategories.

Photo of Kalimpong[edit]

The photo of Kalimpong is out of place. Kalimpong is actually in the higher Mahabharat Range or Lesser Himalaya that is north of the Siwaliks.

I propose to remove this photo. Does anyone have something representative of the Siwaliks to offer? LADave (talk) 19:29, 6 November 2009 (UTC)
