Erosional dissection of mountain ridges between the Pamir and Tien-Shan had been profoundly influenced by folding process within the upper 10 km of the sedimentary mantle, displaced and deformed by the tangential pressure of the Indostan plate. As the uplift proceeds, folding process continue, and valley floors do not keep pace with ridges. The balance between the input from slopes and removal by streams is achieved after glaciers formation. Iincrease in slope angle and valley depth results in developmentr of an optimum cross-profile of the range, usually with narrow crest and rather steep slopes.
