Mountain

Mountains are formed by slow but gigantic movements of the earth’s crust (the outer layer of the Earth).
The Earth’s crust is made up of 6 huge slabs called plates, which fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. When two slabs of the earth’s crust smash into each other the land can be pushed upwards, forming mountains. Many of the greatest mountain ranges of the world have formed because of enormous collisions between continents.
A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area usually in the form of a peak A mountain is generally steeper than a hill.Mountains are formed when the land is being pushed up by strong forces in the Earth, such as plate tectonics.
Some mountains ar formed by areas being thrust up over other areas; some mountains are volcanoes that have died out, or becomeextinct.Mountains are formed when the land is being pushed up by strong forces in the Earth, such as plate tectonics.
