Mountain and valley breeze

Mountain and valley breeze
These are winds experienced in mountainous regions that are well above the sea level
Valley breeze
During the day time, the air above the mountains gets heated and rises up. As a result, the wind blows upslope from the valley with relatively lower temperature. This is known as the valley breeze.
Mountain breeze
But during the night the air in the mountainous regions cools due to the intense cold conditions in that region. As the cool air is dense, it blows towards the valley. This is known as the mountain breeze.
