Are Drakensberg mountains fold mountains?
They are not fold mountains, they were formed from volcanic eruption and large quantities of lava covering the area. Later, wind and water deposited large amounts mud and shale. Weathering has created the mountains as seen today.

Fold mountains are formed from the collision of continental tectonic plates. Since neither plate subducts under the other, the colliding plates wrinkle and fold like a rug bei…ng pushed into a wall.
Folded mountains are mountains that were formed by great pressure on rock layers. Horizontal pressure is put on these layers to form folded mountains. Folded mountains make u…p the highest mountains on the world!

No, the rocky mountains were not formed on a destructive plate. That is wrong, they are fold mountains, they were formed on a weakening in the plate, and millions of years ag…o the plate was under pressure and then it buckled and the Rockies were formed.
Yes they are
the drakensberg mountains were formed from two plates underground meeting together to form c bowl shape and to collect water
The total distance between the two locations is 248 miles. It willtake about 5 hours and 12 minutes.
yes it is, from what i've heard. I have to admit, most mountains are...
It is a fold mountain
yes quite a bit actually
yes it is
Fold mountains are mountains that are formed when the land forms a wave like shape due to the tectonic plate movements underneath so yes the Ural Mountains are fold mountains
No. The Teton Range in Wyoming was formed by uplifts and volcanic actiivity.
