A life in the mountains is so hard that no one lives there. The mountain ranges have prevented India from having any large cities. The mountain ranges have often protected India from northern invaders. Northern India has no large rivers because the mountains cut off the seasonal rains. Why do so many of the people of India live in the Ganges River Valley? The river provides fertile soil for farming. The Ganges River is the only source of fresh water in India. There are few other places in India where people can find work. They live along the Ganges River to keep away from polluted industrial areas.

5 Why do most of the people of North Korea live in the western half of the country?

There are no rivers in the mountains of North Korea. Why do almost 25% of the people in South Korea live in and around Seoul? The climate is subtropical and warm year-round. The area around Seoul is protected from seasonal rains. Most of the rest of the land in South Korea is not suited for farming. The city provides markets, jobs, and education not available in rural areas. How have the farmers of Japan been able to raise crops in land that is very mountainous? They grow only those crops that do not need fertilizer. Farmers are limited to crops that do not need irrigation. They have built farming terraces along the mountain slopes. They raise crops only in the small valleys found between the mountain ranges.
