Mountains are the most rugged of the terrain types. Tall mountains are usually huge in size, giving people a majestic momentum, and people are in awe of it and marvel at the magic of nature. If we choose one representative mountain for each continent, then Asia should be the Himalayas, Africa should be Kilimanjaro, North America should be the Rocky Mountains, South America should be the Andes The representative of Oceania should be the Great Dividing Range, and the representative of Europe should be the Alps.

The Alps are located in central and southern Europe and generally run east-west. It has a total length of about 1,200 kilometers and a width of 130 to 260 kilometers. The Alps cover a total area of about 220,000 square kilometers, and form the Alps with a series of mountain ranges such as the Pyrenees, Apennine, and Denara. The Alps are a young folded mountain range. About 70 million years ago, due to the collision and extrusion of the Eurasian plate and the African plate, the rock formations were uplifted to form huge Alps, which eventually reached an average altitude of about 3,000 meters.

The scenery of the Alps is very charming. It is a world-famous scenic spot and tourist attraction. It is called "the palace of nature" and "the real geomorphology exhibition hall" by the world. The glaciers of the Alps have formed many lakes, the largest of which is Lake Geneva, as well as Lake Zurich, Lake Constance, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como. The beautiful Lake District is a tourist attraction. It is also a holy place for ice and snow sports and a paradise for explorers, and the mountain glaciers present a polar scenery. There are many villages and towns in the western and middle sections of the Alps, between the foothills and the valleys, with beautiful scenery and elegant environment, attracting a large number of tourists and winter skiing enthusiasts.

The Alps are mainly distributed in Switzerland and Austria. Switzerland has its most beautiful part, where snow-capped mountains, crystal glaciers and clear lakes are as pure as a fairy tale world. For Switzerland, and even for the whole of Europe, the significance of the Alps is far from being a "mountain". It was the ultimate destination of continental travel more than 200 years ago, and this exploration of nature and soul continues to this day.

Here is the perfect combination of modern European civilization and the original culture of the Alps. The densely-packed mountain cabins are still the favorite vacation choice for locals, and it is also the best choice to experience the pure culture and slow lifestyle of the Alps. In terms of landscape, natural resources, human history, tourism and vacation, the Alps can be called the "Soul of Switzerland". It can be said that Switzerland became Switzerland because of the Alps. In the Alps, blue sky, clouds, lakes, meadows, cattle and sheep all exist completely. There are also many quaint small hotels scattered along the hillside, and you can enjoy the beautiful scenery when you open the windows.

White clouds gathered and scattered over the distant peaks, and the Alps looked very green against the sun. The Alps act as a natural barrier against the cold northern winds, giving Italy a mild climate. This also makes the piedmont plains have unique conditions of abundant water and mild climate, which are suitable for the growth of crops and promote the formation of the Po River Plain, the only rice-producing area in Europe. This mountain is of great significance to the Italian economy.
