The Pir Panjal Range is a group of mountains in the Lesser Himalayan region, running from east-southeast to west-northwest across the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and the Pakistan administered Kashmir, where the average elevation varies from 1,400 m to 4,100 m. The Himalayas show a gradual elevation towards the Dhauladhar and Pir Panjal ranges. Pir Panjal is the largest range of the Lesser Himalayas. Near the bank of the Sutlej River, it dissociates itself from the Himalayas and forms a divide between the Beas and Ravi rivers on one side and the Chenab on the other. The renowned Galyat mountains are also located in this range. The region is connected to the Valley of Kashmir via Mughal Road and used to be the historical connection of Kashmir with India.
