Abstract

Precipitation around Annapurna range of the Nepal Himalayas has been studied in this research. There are a few precipitation stations both to the south as well as to the north of this 7 to 8 km high Himalayan range. It has been seen that in this sector of the Himalayas, moist winds on crossing the range from south to north lose about 95 of their moisture which appears to be the highest for any section of the Himalayas.
