  1. Glaciated highlands/mountains form unique sites for tourist attraction in a country. Foreign exchange earned from these tourists is used to develop other sectors of the economy.
  2. Formation of hanging valleys in glaciated highlands due to glacial erosion forces water from tributaries to plunge into the main river occupying a U-shaped valley. This lead to the formation of waterfalls hence creating suitable locations for construction of hydroelectric power stations.
  3. Glaciated highlands encourage growth of nutritious pasture in summer which attracts grazing of dairy animals.
