- Asia - TGN 1000004
- Himalayas (mountain system) - TGN 7016919. Vast mountain range bordering India in the north, covering most of Nepal and the southern edge of Tibet. It forms part of the huge string of Eurasian mountain ranges, stretching from the Alps to the mountains of Southeast Asia, that were formed over the last 65 million years by global plate-tectonics (which produced tremendous upheavals in the Earth's crust). The range has historically been a political and economic barrier because of the difficulty in traversing its mountain passes. It is the focus of many Asian myths. It is noted for monasteries, llamas, and as a challenge to modern adventurers. It contains the world's highest peak, Mount Everest.

- landscapes (representations) - Use for creative works that depict outdoor scenes where the picture is dominated by the configuration, visual and aesthetic, of the land, bodies of water, and natural elements. When the ocean or other large body of water dominates the picture, use "seascapes." For images that are more documentary than creative, prefer "views" or "topographical views." For actual areas of land having certain notable characteristics, use "landscapes (environments)." [January 1993 scope note added; related term added. April 1991 descriptor moved; lead-in term added; descriptor changed, was "landscapes"; alternate term changed, was 'landscape'.]
