Like a mountain, a plateau is higher than its surrounding are. Howvever, plateaus have a flat top, while mountains have peaks. Like mountains, plateaus are formed when two continental plates collide, but erosion due to wind and water flattens the top. Plateaus are not as tall as mountains. In fact, some plateaus, such as the tibetanPlateau, lie between two mountain ranges.
