When the continental plates collided to form Pangea, mountain ranges formed from the impact that occured over time. This mountain building activity happens each time continental plates come together. An example of this is the Himalayan Mountains. The process of mountain building is known as plate convegence.
However, the Himalayan Mountains have nothing to do with the convergence that created Pangea. The Himalayas result from the collision of the Indian plate with Eurasia, a process that began about 40 million years ago. Pangea was assembled about 250,000,000 years ago. The Ural Mountains, the Appalachians, and others around the world today are the eroded remnants of the mountains created by Pangean collisions.
