In pictures: The mountains of Asia

From the snow peaks of the Himalayas in India and Nepal to the high country of Sri Lanka’s tea growing districts and Indonesia’s verdant volcanoes, the mountain ranges of Asia offer a variety of vistas, climates, villages and even agricultural methods.

These images showcase a swathe of these mountains with everything from foot hills to the highest peaks, the monasteries, towns and people that live amongst them.
