Mountains are very useful.
The mountains are a storehouse of water.
Many rivers have their source in the glaciers in the mountains.

Reservoirs are made and the water is harnessed for the use of people.
Water from the Mountains is also used for irrigation and generation of hydro-electricity.
The river valleys and terraces are ideal for cultivation of crops.

Also, mountains have a rich variety of flora and fauna.
The forests provide fuel, fodder, shelter and other products like gum, raisins, etc.

Mountains provide an idyllic site for tourists.
They visit the mountains for their scenic beauty.
Several sports like paragliding, hang gliding, river rafting and skinning are popular in the mountains.
