The mountains on Deneb IV

A mountain is a geological formation that rises significantly higher than the surrounding land, sometimes many kilometers high. Although there is no standard definition, a hill is usually much smaller than a mountain. Mountains and hills are a common occurrence on many planets, both inhabited and not.

The area surrounding Farpoint Station and Old Bandi City on the planet Deneb IV consisted of mountains. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint")

In the early 2370s, a Klingon civilian transport ship crashed in a mountainous area of the planet Galorda Prime. (DS9: "Rules of Engagement")

On Earth, the tallest mountain is Mount Everest in the Himalayas. Also very tall is the Tibetan plateau.

Trapped on Torga IV in the Gamma Quadrant, Enrique Muñiz told Miles O'Brien that "...Ireland doesn't have any mountains, it has hills." He jokingly called O'Brien a "mountain man... an old mountain man", to which O'Brien took offense. (DS9: "The Ship")

Ireland does have mountains although not very large ones.

The mountains located on Ba'ku had deposits of kelbonite. (Star Trek: Insurrection)
