Scenery Images of Amazing and Incredible Alps In Europe

Via seeing scenery images in place, the Alps represents the highest and most extensive mountain range system that lies entirely in Europe. Besides, they are stretching something around 1,200 kilometers (i.e. 750 miles) thorough eight Alpine countries: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Slovenia, and Switzerland. In the photos, these mountains were made more than tens of millions of years as the African and Eurasian tectonic plates collided. In other words, extreme shortening induced by the event resulted in marine sedimentary rocks. So, they are rising by thrusting and folding into high mountain peaks, for instance, Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn. Note that Mont Blanc stretches the French–Italian border, and at 4,810 m (i.e. 15,781 feet) becomes the highest mountain in the Alps. Indeed, the Alpine region area has something around a hundred peaks higher than 4,000 m (i.e. 13,123 ft), recognized as the “four-thousanders”. More reading
