Give five features of the Deccan Plateau.
- The Deccan Plateau is a triangular landmass that lies to the south of the river Narmada.
- The Satpura range flanks its broad base in the north while the Mahadev, the Kaimur hills and the Maikal range form its eastward extension.
- It is higher in the west and slopes gently eastwards.
- Its north-east extension is locally known as the Meghalaya and Karbi-Anglong plateau and North Cachar Hills. It is separated by a fault from the Chota Nagpur plateau.
- Three prominent hill ranges from the west to east are the Garo, Khasi and Jaintia hills.
