Fold mountains are mountain formed from folding of the earth's crust and tend to be made of sedimentary rocks.

The crust of the earth is made up of plates. These plates move around very, very slowly.

When two plates of similar density push together folding of the crust takes place.

The crust is squashed together and forced upwards. Sedimentary rocks are forced upwards into a series of folds.

The whole process takes millions of years. on facebook
