  10. Shiwalik Hills were formed by the accumulation of conglomerates (sand, stone, silt, gravel, debris etc.)which in the initial stages of deposition, obstructed the courses of the rivers draining from the higher reaches of the Himalayas and formed temporary lakes. With passage of time, these temporary lakes accumulated more and more conglomerates. The conglomerates were well settled at the bottom of the lakes. When the rivers were able to cut their courses through the lakes filled with conglomerate deposits, the lakes were drained away leaving behind plains called 'duns' or 'doons' in the west and 'duars' in the east. Dehra Dun in Uttarakhand is the best example [75 km long and 15-20 km widel . Kotah, Patli Kothri, Chumbi, Kyarda, Chaukhamba, Udhampur and Kotli are other important duns.
