Mountains are landforms that are raised steeply, forming peaks, above the surrounding terrain. Mountains are much steeper and higher than hills. Most mountains are formed by movements in the earth's crust. The height of a mountain is usually measured in meters above the sea-level. Mountains cover nearly one-quarter of Earth's land mass, and are source of most of the world's rivers.
