Indias main physical features are the ancient
Deccan plateau encompassing most of Southern
India and flanked by the Western Ghats and
Eastern Ghats, the vast alluvial plain of the
River Ganges, the Himalaya mountains stretching
for 2,400 km across the north of India, and the
Thar desert which lies mostly in the state of
Rajasthan.

The least populated areas are in the inhospitable
mountain regions of the Western and Eastern Ghats
and the Himalayas

Because of Indias size its climate depends not
only on the time of year but also the location.
It ranges from tropical in the south to temperate
and alpine in the Himalayas.

Most of India has three seasons summer, rainy
or monsoon, and winter. South-west monsoon causes
rain over most of the country from June to
September. The north-east monsoon hits the east
coast between October and February mostly as
cyclones. The north-east of India receives rain
from both monsoons.
