Correct option is
A

Himadri

The Himalayas are divided into three ranges . In those The Greater Himalayas , the first range is also known as "Himadri". And the Lesser Himalayas are known as "Himachal".Many snow capped mountain peaks adorn in this region.

The idea to monitor alpine plant communities was first discussed in 1996 during a workshop in Kathmandu. Scientists began running experiments in alpine habitats to determine what a good sample method might be. In 2001, GLORIA-Europe was launched. This initial project, with 18 sites in 13 different European nations, was a way to test out the idea before going worldwide. Since the spring of 2004, GLORIA has been expanding into other regions of the world. However, Indian Himalaya remained a gap which is being filled through HIMADRI network.
