Mountains are a subset of biomes where abrupt and drastic changes in elevation are common across the landscape.
The mountains biome resembles real-life highlands, with hills, valleys, mountains, and plateaus. One major difference is that large, overhanging patches of land are commonly generated throughout the biome. This biome contains some of the highest elevations in the Overworld. In some sub variants, the elevation can be so high that snow and powder snow will cover the tops of hills. Hill sizes and shapes dependent on the sub type.
