Mountains are famous for their nasty habit of suddenly dropping huge avalanches, conjuring terrifying storms and – of course – their impressive heights. So yes, it’s true. Like most people, mountains are our favourite huge lumps of rock protruding from the Earth. How many mountains can you name? We bet it’s more than the number of swamps you can name! Swamps are the worst!
