A mountain range is a group of mountains that are connected by high ground. They usually form when two tectonic plates collide, forcing the land up and creating a chain of mountains and can be found all over the world and vary in size from small hills to large mountain systems like the Himalayas. The highest peak in a mountain range is known as its apex or summit, while its lowest point is called its base or foot. Mountain ranges provide habitats for many species of plants and animals, as well as offering recreational opportunities for hikers and climbers. They also play an important role in regulating global climate patterns by trapping moisture from clouds passing through them, which helps to create rain shadows on their leeward sides.
