montaña, noun:
mountain

Incidentally, the state of Montana gets its name from this word, due to the numerous mountain ranges that are there. It’s not the only place named after its mountainous terrain; Nevada means snowcapped and sierra (as in Sierra Nevada in the United States and Sierra Madre in Mexico) means mountain range.
