Mountains are home to 15 per cent of the worldґs population.
They host about half of the world's biodiversity hotspots.
They cover about 27 per cent of the earth's surface
Mountains provide freshwater for everyday life to half of humanity.
The theme for International Mountain Day 2020 is Mountain biodiversity. International Mountain Day gives us an opportunity to spread awareness about protecting mountain biodiversity !
My hobbies include trekking and mountaineering . I used to smoke cigarette while trekking, smoke on the mountains (not while climbing up or down). Now I do not need to smoke and feel guilty. I go on mountains, and breath fresh air !
We do our bit ..taking care for environment by NOT SMOKING while we visit mountains, or elsewhere !
Protect environment !
