North Indian Plain
The North Indian Plain is the large space of level land that was made by the Indus River in the west and the Ganges River in the east. It is an important part of the countries of India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Its space of about 700,000 square kilometers or 270,000 square miles is the home of about 1 billion persons (about one in every seven persons alive today).
Its western edge is the Iranian Plateau, a high, flat land; its northern edge is the Himalaya Mountains, the highest mountains on Earth; and its southern edge is made by the Vindhya and Satpura Mountains and Chota Nagpur Plateau of middle India.
