Jason Schneider's curator insight, January 27, 2015 4:38 PM

It's interesting to know that Russia takes up 30% of the world. Also, what is known as a natural border, India's border that separates India and most of the rest of Asia are the Himalayan Mountains. As for Plateaus, Asia is popular for many as  you will find most of them in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran.
