5 Reasons To Love The Mountains – Inspires Adventure

Soaring peaks, crystal blue glacial lakes and rugged terrain: welcome to the mountains! As part of International Mountain Day we celebrate the reasons to love the mountains!

Mountains are found on every continent, on land, under the sea and even on planets such as Mars! In fact, 1/5 of the earth’s surface is covered by mountains and they are home to 13% of the world’s population! Here are 5 reasons to love being in the mountains!

Having the opportunity to appreciate nature and experience outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing and stargazing! Fresh mountain air is intoxicating (In a good way!) and makes you happier! (Or is that just me?)

I love being in the mountains but sadly out mountains are under pressure.

International Mountain Day 2017 – Do Your Bit!

Did you know that: climate change, hunger and rural to urban migration are threatening mountain communities around the world today? Mountains are a vital part of the global ecosystem and therefore matter to everyone. So how can your bit? Help reduce climate change by: buying local produce; recycling and walking instead of driving to name a few ideas!
