Today only three different ethnic groups from the Himalayan population exists. They are the Negroids, Mongoloids and the Aryans. The population, settlement in the Himalayan region is greatly influenced by the topography, economic pattern and the climatic conditions. The climate is one of the main factors of population settlements, since extreme climatic conditions impose a restriction on the living conditions and tends to restrict movement and communication. But the ethnic groups living in the remote valleys of the Himalayan region have generally conserved their traditional cultural identities.
