Garo Hills, physiographic locale, western Meghalaya state, northeastern India. It includes the western edge of the Shillong Plateau and ascends to a top rise of around 4,600 feet (1,400 meters). Depleted by different feeders of the Brahmaputra River, it has incredibly high precipitation and is intensely forested. The area has a farming economy, with rice, cotton, sal (sort Shorea), bamboo, and lac as the essential items. Enormous amounts of coal and limestone and some oil have been found. Neighborhood groups practice a complex matrilineal social framework. The populace is for the most part Garo. Nokrek National Park, in the western piece of the locale, ensures an exceptionally different plant and creature local area that incorporates the Indian wild orange (Citrus indica), thought to be an ancestor of citrus organic products.
