Generally an earthquake occurs when the tectonic plates slide over each other creating a disruption in the landmass. Two tectonic plates meet beneath the Himalayas along a fault line. The India plate is moving north at around 45mm a year and pushing under the Eurasian plate. Over time that is how the Himalayas were created.
