Convergent Boundary

In plate tectonics, a convergent boundary, also known as a destructive plate boundary , is an actively deforming region where two or more tectonic plates or fragments of the lithosphere move toward one another and collide, creating mountains and earthquakes.

The April 2015 Nepal earthquake killed nearly 9,000 people and injured nearly 22,000.
