Mountain ranges are long chains or groups of mountains. Ranges are usually 1000 or more miles long. The Rocky Mountains and the Himalayan Mountains are examples of mountain ranges. The largest range of mountains is in the Alantic Ocean.

A group of mountain ranges is called a mountain system. For example, the mountain systems of the United States include the Rockies and the Appalachians.
