Flat land (or plains) in a Himalayan country like Nepal is very significant. In general, such plains occur along the Himalayan front marked by the Siwalik hills (both as Indo-Gangetic plains to its south and intermontane valleys to its north); these areas also accommodate significant part of the total deformation in the Himalaya and are prone to large earthquakes as evidenced by past surface ruptures.
