Figure 30. Photograph 17-31-047. South down the Koli-Thakkola graben. It demonstrates that the Himalaya Mountains are extending parallel to its length. North-trending graben are found across the southern Tibetan Plateau showing that it too is extending east-west as India moves north under the Asian Plate. At the southern (far) end of the graben is a major fault at right angles to the graben. Along the far side on the left is Annapurna; to the right is Dhaulagiri, both over 26,000 ft.
