In India, Panchchuli, Kun Nun and Shilong only these mountain are claimed to be massif. Why other mountain formations are not termed as massif...? What are the characteristics of massif..?
Anybody pls explain.
A massif is an undisturbed solid rock mass, which is demarcated by e.g. faults. Massifs keep their internal structure and are displaced as a whole. Only mountains of mountain ranges fulfilling this criteria are called massifs.
