Marked one of the most important days on my calendar, today is the day of the most beautiful creations of Mother Nature , the MOUNTAINS .
Fresh air, cold breeze and fog all around, rich and exotic flora and fauna, unpolluted dreamy night sky, lit with millions of stars - Every mountain is as unique as it can get!
Hiking up a mountain is not just another adventure sport. It demands a humongous level of determination, dedication , fitness both physical and mental and the will to scale the peak against all odds.
This International Mountain Day, let's pledge to be conscious travelers- conscious of the ecosystem, conscious of the local cuisine, culture and language , conscious of our trash-footprint - and not some overjoyed tourists, unmindful of the surroundings.
