Geography of India

Ever been on a roller coaster and felt like it was the most exciting thing you'll ever do? Well then you probably haven't climbed the beautiful, breathtaking mount. Everest in India. At an astonishing 29,290' the mountain stands past the clouds overlooking the busy world.If mountain climbing isn't the "rock" to your roll than maybe you would like sleeping under the stars at the Deccan Plateau. If you don't want to sleep under the stars maybe you would enjoy swimming in the bay of Bengal, its like swimming in liquid gold.

Unique animals of India

Have you ever read "the jungle book?" well it was inspired by the Khana national park in India. You can find tigers and gaurs are spotted here quite often. Another good park is the Panna park. In Harappa the domesticated animals were sheep, goats, and cattle. There were many of the same uses for animals as we have today but there were also many differences, some of the uses were eating, sheering for wool, hunting, and many other things.

Harappa is an ancient cite that had domesticated animals and they were, sheep, goats, cattle.The animals were used in many different ways. Moving right along, everyone has to eat, so they used to eat grains, but they couldn't store them just anywhere. They stored their grains in a grainery. Harappa is now modern day Pakistan. There used to be a large protective wall around the city. Mohenjo-Daro is another ancient cite. They built houses with mostly flat roofs made out of mud and bricks. They also planned their cities very well and there were about 35,000 people. They built fortresses and also had indoor plumbing just like we do.
