This mountain of geological late continent-continent collision origin has very ancient history perhaps touching the Archaean. Giant scale endogenous turmoil thoroughly overhauled terrain mostly within the confines of distinct belts or divisions and spectacularly uplifted the terrain in superlative terms. Resting on the foundation of structure, tectonics, geomorphology, stratigraphy and evolution, wings of geology extend much further. Several books, mostly having regional approach of different scales have been written on the Himalayan geology with specified intentions. Dimensions of Himalayan Geology is based on more than direct references and succinctly opens a gateway to different aspects of Himalayan geology. The book apprises the readers with latest findings.

Large number of topics covered in this book is hardly available in any other single book so far.
