The Western Ghats

The Eastern Ghats

The Western Ghats lie on the western margin of the Deccan Plateau.

The Eastern Ghats lie on the eastern margin of the Deccan Plateau.

The Western Ghats are higher in elevation. Their average elevation is from 900 to 1600 metres.

The Eastern Ghats are lower in elevation. Their average elevation is 600 metres.

They have a continuous chain of mountains and can be crossed through passes only.

The mountain chains are not continuous and are denuded by the rivers which flow into the Bay of Bengal.

No major river cuts across them.

They have been cut across by major rivers such as Godavari, Mahanadi, Krishna and Kaveri.
