1.

After the supercontinent of Laurasia broke up millions of years ago, India moved slowly north towards Asia and then crashed into it. The seabed between the two plates (the earth's crust is divided into large areas of land called plates) was crumbled and pushed up on the northern rim of India to form mountains.

These two plates of the earth's crust are still moving, so the Himalayas are being pushed up higher. Mount Everest is growing two inches taller each year.
