The collision of India with southern Asia in the past 50 million years has produced a mountain system of great diversity and immense size, with the Himalaya, Karakoram and the Tibetan plateau being the direct result. All of the world's 8000-metre peaks lie in the Himalaya-Tibet-Karakoram mountain system, and the structure, relative timescale and dimensions of this great range have strongly evolved. It is now reasonably well established that the rise of the range caused significant changes in the Earth's climate ini the past 40 million years, culminating in extensive glaciatin in the northern hemisphere and Antarctica.
