A mountain is a landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area usually in the form of a peak but there is no universally-accepted definition of mountain.

Often, whether something is called a mountain depends on what it is called by the local people. One more objective definition is that mountains are land areas that are higher than 2,500m though other heights may be considered mountains depending on slope and local elevation.
