Habitability and characteristics[]

The life-bearing status on mountain planets are fair. Some habitable mountain planets feature water found in river valleys, as well as in lakes and seas.


There are an estimated 23 billion mountain planets in our galaxy alone, making it the third least abundant surfacel class of planet, after forest planet and city planet. This corresponds that 44‰ of all 524 billion terrestrial planets and 28‰ of all 820 billion planets in our galaxy are mountain planets.
