All of the Asian ranges above have been formed in part over the past 35 to 55 million years by the collision between the Indian Plate
Indian Plate
and Eurasian Plate. The Indian Plate
Indian Plate
is still particularly mobile and these mountain ranges continue to rise in elevation every year; of these the Himalayas
are rising most quickly; the Kashmir
and Pamirs region to the north of the Indian subcontinent is the point of confluence of these mountains which encircle the Tibetan Plateau

on three sides. By prominence[edit] See List of peaks by prominence
