A mountain is bigger than a hill. It takes many years to form a mountain. Mountains are very helpful for us as they provide many things to us like: Many rivers get water from mountains, mountains provide us soil and rocks; we get precious gems e.g. rubies, diamonds and etc from mountains and most of all mountains change the direction of the wind. There are many kinds of mountains like block mountains, Fold Mountains and volcanic mountains. There formation is different and are Block mountains: block mountains are formed when pressure under earth’s surface pushes up a block of land or a block of land sinks. Fold Mountains: Fold Mountains are formed from the collision of continental tectonic plates. Since neither plates sub ducts under the other, colliding plates in wrinkles and fold like a rug being pushed in a wall. Volcanic mountains: volcanic mountains are formed when volcanic lava keeps coming out of a place this lava piles and forms a volcanic mountains. Now we know different kinds of mountains and there formation. Now I will tell you about some more interesting facts. As we know the biggest mountain is Mount Everest and second highest is K2 in Pakistan. They both are located in Himalayan range. It is the biggest range in the world. Other big ranges are Rockies of South America, Alps of Europe and etc. Do you think mountains last forever? No they don’t. The wind and water shrink them and they finish.
