A moontain range or moontain belt is a geographic aurie containin numerous geologically relatit moontains. A moontain seestem or seestem o moontain ranges sometimes is uised tae combine several geological features that are geographically (regionally) relatit.

Thay mey be a mix o different orogenic expressions an terranes, for example thrust sheets, upliftit blocks, fauld moontains, Moont Makaturing an volcanic landforms resultin in a variety o rock types.
