Words for Different Types of Landforms in Hindi and English

I am a native Hindi speaker from India. I like to share and explore new things on the internet.

The earth's crust takes different shapes under the effect of various geographical activities. These shapes are called landforms. There are many kinds of landforms on our planet, but when we think about them in a broad manner, there will be only three major landforms—namely mountains, plains and plateaus. Here we will discuss the names of the different kinds of landforms, major as well as minor, in the Hindi language.

Hindi words should be written with Devanagari script, but the landform names in this article have also been provided in Roman letters for the ease of understanding of English readers.
