Initially mountains formed which includes earth quakes.

The rivers are formed when group of springs and streams known as headwaters having their origin in the mountains flow down to form a large stream or springs. The stream bed of a river lies between the banks of a river. The large streams are called as a river while the smaller ones are called as creeks, brooks, rivulets or tributaries. The rivers form the major component of the water cycle. The water in a river is accumulated from precipitation of ground water and also through the release of stored water in natural reservoirs such as glaciers.
