The Himalaya Connection


Episode Description
Tuesday, Apr 24, 2018 - 3:00 AM    Shot in Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Mongolia, Nepal and Pakistan, the film explores the dramatic and far-reaching effects of the Indian and Asian tectonic plates crashing below the Himalayas and their impact on the region's geology, climate and people. It also reveals how the Indian-Asian plate collision created notable geologic superlatives: Earth's highest mountain range-the Himalayas-and some of Earth's largest rivers, such as the Brahmaputra, Ganges, and Indus, which flow from the Himalayas and the Tibetan Plateau to sustain 45 percent of all the people in the world.
