~> Fold mountains are mountains in which the mountain is formed due to the pressure applied from two opposite directions. The land in between is compressed and forms folds and rises to form fold mountains. e.g. Himalayan Range is a new fold mountain while Aravalli Mountains are old fold mountains.
While rift valleys are formed due to natural activity in which a part of the land that has been pushed upward is called horst. While the land which has sunken below the fault line is called graben. e.g. The Rhine Rift Valley in Germany.
