Mountain climbing is a good way to escape the rat race and be one with nature. The tales we need have been with us for hundreds of years, told by the storytellers to their audiences in tents, huts, spherical the hearth, on the mountains, in family houses – wherever individuals came collectively. Mountains often have steep, sloping sides and sharp or slightly rounded ridges and peaks.
However it’s, it seems, time for me to return down from the mountain. These crystalline terrains usually contain the highest peaks in any mountain belt and embrace the highest belt in the world, the Himalayas, which was fashioned by the thrusting of crystalline rocks up onto the floor of the Earth.
Different varieties of mountains form when stresses inside and between the tectonic plates result in cracking and faulting of the Earth’s floor, which forces blocks of rock up and down. The Himalayas, which are the highest mountains on the planet, had been formed when the plate carrying the landmass of India collided with the plate carrying the landmass of China.
The ranges of this great mountain system are being overthrust onto the basins, and one such basin , the Turfan Despair , has dropped below sea level (see tectonic basins and rift valleys ). In distinction with the parallel ranges in the Tien Shan, the northwest-trending Wind River Range in Wyoming, the east-west trending Uinta Mountains in Utah, and the north-south trending Front Range in Colorado are all part of the same intracontinental belt, the Rocky Mountains.
