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.
