Caption: View looking west over the Himalayan Mountains, seen from Space Shuttle Challenger during Mission 61-A of 30 October to 6 November 1985. This view contains the entire country of Nepal, with the Tibet Autonomous Province of China to the right and northern India to the left. Just right of centre is Lake Paiku Co. Two large valleys cut right through the snow-covered Himalayas: just above centre is a valley that flanks Mount Anapurna, just below centre is the Arun Valley that runs to the east of Mount Everest. The Himalayan mountains form a sharp geological boundary between the high, mountainous Tibetan plateau and the low-lying Indo-Gangetic plains.
