Mountains are created when tectonic plates move together and overlap.

Whenever the contents of the Earth spill onto it’s surface, there is a minute but significant reduction in the earth’s volume/ diameter and circumference creating pressure / stress within the Earth’s tectonic plates resulting in earthquakes and buckling of the earths outer mantle creating valleys and mountains.
