” On top of mountains & beneath the stars ”
Travelling has always been my passion. I love to discover new places and share my experiences with others.
There is no accepted definition of a mountain. Elevation, volume, relief, steepness, spacing and continuity have been used as criteria for defining a mountain .It is a large land form that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. Mountains erode slowly through the action of rivers, weather conditions, and glaciers.
