International Mountain Day - Call of the Mountains

International Mountain Day - Call of the Mountains

Born among the mountains, they truly understand the tranquility! The rest are just fantasies! I'm calling on the orophile clan to back me up on this. You're probably wondering what an orophile is. They are mountain enthusiasts! If you just learned something new, this blog will make you want to pack your bags and go! Of course, to the mountains.
Mountains are among the most beautiful places on the planet. To humans, a landscape with mountains is nothing short of heaven. Mountains have existed long before any of us and will most likely continue to exist after we are gone. The mountains, like beaches, provide a far greater sense of peace.
When you travel through valleys and see how tall our mountains are, you will be struck by their mighty power and how beautiful they make a place. Everyone is aware of how the mountains formed. The process is destructive, but the end result is breathtaking. Mountains form as a result of tectonic plate collisions, and the mountains that form are scenic. Even the youngest mountain, our beloved Mount Everest, is a million years old. The mountain day is celebrated to thank these magnificent landscapes for the serene and scenic beauty they provide. It's no surprise that Gods and Goddesses live in the mountains.
Today is International Mountain Day.
On December 11th, we celebrate International Mountain Day to raise awareness about the importance of mountains in our lives and the life that thrives around them. We want to draw people's attention to the opportunities and constraints presented by mountain development. We celebrate this day in order to strengthen our bonds with the mountain people and to effect positive change in the environments that exist all over the world. The United Nations General Assembly declared 2002 the International Year of the Mountains, and the 11th of December was designated as Mountain Day from that year forward.
Theme of World Mountain Day 2021
Mountain Day is being observed under a new theme this year. 'Sustainable mountain tourism' is the theme for 2021. The concept of sustainable tourism has the potential to provide an alternate source of income for mountain people. It may also result in a reduction in poverty for mountain dwellers. This sustainability may lead to these people's social inclusion in society. The UN's goal with this theme is to promote landscape and biodiversity conservation. Sustainable tourism can help to preserve the mountains' heritage (cultural, natural, and spiritual), promote high-value local products, and promote local festivals to tourists from all over the world.
Following the Covid, there was a significant drop in tourism in 2019 as a result of the restrictions imposed to protect lives and sacred lands. Mountain tourism accounts for 15-20% of all tourism worldwide. After covid, tourism was the worst-affected industry. The pandemic has had an impact on livelihoods and public services, as well as on the number of opportunities that have been formally presented to the people. Although the crisis had wreaked havoc on us, it provided us with an opportunity to reconsider our approach to tourism and how we can make it more green, inclusive, and resilient in the future.
FAO intends to create communication materials in six UN languages, which will be available on their website. They will also provide hard copies upon request. Celebrate Mountain Day with your family and friends by organizing an event to spread the word about the value of mountains in our lives and using the hashtag #MountainsMatter on social media.
On this day, let's talk about some treks you can take to see the most beautiful scenery and most picturesque places in the mountains.
Trekking in Indian mountain ranges is a type of mountain tourism.
Trek to DeoriatalChandrashila
It is the only winter trek with spectacular morning views. Winter mountains and winter mornings are extremely rare sights. Only on this trek will you be able to see the most unusual sights. The Chandrashila Summit provides an excellent vantage point from which to view the scenic beauty of our Indian Himalayas. To be more specific, the Gangotri ranges are visible on the right. The Gangotri ranges include Mt. Thalaysagar, the Kedar dome, and Mt. Kedarnath. From this vantage point, you can see the Chaukhamba range (I, II, III, IV). Dunagiri, Hathi Parbat, and Gauri Parbat can be seen on the right.
