What is a continent-continent convergence?

Continent-Continent (C-C) convergence is formed between two continental plates. When the plates converge, oceanic sediments are squeezed and upthrust between the plates and these squeezed sediments appear as fold mountains along the plate margins. The Himalayan Mountains are an example of this type of convergent plate boundary.
