I would use a height map. You could try making one by painting in zbrush or photoshop, or maybe find some actual elevation maps of that specific geographical location... or similar.

You mean that grapping the plane on photoShop and paint black and white Image.
If you mean that when i do so the image it become so so small on max.
and as you see the mountain full of details and i doupt that i can get excatly what i want by Black&White image.

You can actually get a lot of nuance out of a grayscale image. The human eye may not detect the subtle changes in gray throughout the image, but the computer does. If you use a 16bit/24bit image, there are even more levels of detail able to be stored within the file. Smoothing will take care of any other artifacting you may encounter.
