In Hindu cosmology, the longevity of the universe is 4.32 billion years.
This is divided into 1,000 yuga cycles or Chaturyugas.
Each yuga cycle is made up of four yugas: Satya-yuga, Treta-yuga, Dwapara-yuga, Kali-yuga.
Satya-yuga 17,28,000 years long, Treta-yuga is 12,96,000 years long, Dwapara-yuga is 8,64,000 years long and Kali-yuga is 4,32,000 years long.
We are now (2022 A.D.) in Kaliyuga.
The next yuga will be Satya yuga.
The best among the four yugas is Satya yuga also known as Krita yuga.
Each yuga cycle comprising of Satya-Treta-Dwapara-Kali yugas has a total duration of 43,20,000 years.
The total duration of each yuga is: Satya yuga - 17,28,000 years. Treta yuga - 12,96,000 years. Dwapara yuga - 8,64,000 years. Kali yuga - 4,32,000 years.
Each yuga has a dawning period called Yuga-sandhya and a dusk period called Yuga-sandhyamsha.
Based on this, each yuga is divided as follows:
The major events in Mahabharata including the battle of Kurukshetra took place towards the end of Dwapara yuga.
The current Kali yuga (28th) will end in the year 4,28,899 CE.

The next Satya yuga will start in the year 4,28,899 CE.

Mountains had wings in Satya (Krita) yuga.
They flew around freely and whenever they landed on earth crushed plants, trees, and living beings under them.
Everyone lived in fear.
Then Indra cut the wings of all the mountains except Mainaka.
According to Hindu scriptures, Kali yuga will end in the year 4,28,899 CE.
The total life of the universe from creation to dissolution is 4.32 billion years.
This comprises of 14 Manvantaras.
Each Manvantara is made of 71 Chaturyuga cycles.
Six Manvantaras are over now.
We are now in the 28th yuga cycle in the 7th Manvantara.
That means only 453 yuga cycles are over from the time of creation and the present one is the 454th.
There will be 546 more Satya yugas till the elimination of the present universe.
