The Himalayan peak of Nanda Devi is associated with the Hindu goddesses Nanda and Sunanda; it has been off-limits to climbers since 1983. There are three main types of mountains: volcanic, fold, and block. All three types are formed from plate tectonics: when portions of the Earth's crust move, crumple, and dive. Main article: List of highest mountains.
The Himalayan mountain range is subdivided into four principal tectonic zones, from south to north these are: the SubHimalaya, the Lesser Himalaya, the Higher Himalayan Crystallines and the Tethyan Himalaya (Fig. 1). The Sub-Himalaya, also known as the Siwalik Range (250–800 .

Tectonic processes shape the landscape and form some of the most spectacular structures found in national parks, from the highest peaks in the Rocky Mountains to the faulted mountains and valleys in the Basin and Range Province. Understanding a park's plate tectonic history and setting can help you make sense of the landforms and scenery you see.

The Appalachian Mountains, often called the Appalachians, are a system of mountains in eastern North America. This was just the first of a series of mountain building plate collisions that contributed to the formation of the Appalachians.
The Appalachian Mountains, often called the Appalachians, are a system of mountains in eastern North America. The Appalachians first formed roughly 480 million years ago during the Ordovician Period, and once reached elevations similar to those of the Alps and the Rocky Mountains before they were eroded. Mountain building continued periodically throughout the next 250 million years (Caledonian, Acadian, Ouachita, Hercynian, and Allegheny orogenies).
The mountain belt develops a regional profile that tapers towards the . In active continental margins, mountain building processes have been classically referred to as Andean-type orogenesis (.
The mountain belt develops a regional profile that tapers towards the subducting plate. The geology has been studied and scrutinized for more than 200 years and, as a result, much of our basic understanding of mountain belts has been derived through examples found in the Appalachians. Uyeda and Kanamori, 1979) wherever the coupling between an oceanic plate subducted beneath a continent is associated with stress transmission to the upper plate, leading to fold-thrust belt development and arc magmatism.

Mountain building involves uplift, deformation, jointing, faulting, folding, foliation, metamorphism, igneous activity, and sedimentation. Orogenesis applies force to rocks, causing deformation (bending, breaking, shortening, stretching, and shearing). I would read paragraph in book pg. 280).
