There is no dearth of nature lovers in the world. Mountains are an abode of nature. To view nature at its best, a visit to the hills becomes a must. The closeness to pure natural beauty is another reason behind mountain affinity.

Mountains provide some highly daunting roads and many off-roading drives as well. For the ones who love challenging rides and difficult terrains to spread their vehicles on, mountains are the biggest attractions.

Apart from peace, mountains have a bounty of space for everyone. Many people look for solitude in the mountains and they get it at higher altitudes. Everyone needs some lone introspective time and hills do not lag behind in providing it.

 

11. Slower life

Life in the mountains is still very slow. Days are shorter than nights and there is no hurry to complete a task. Such life was a past of many who have now been engulfed by the fast and furious life of the cities. To experience the same good old days, a lot of people resort to the mountains.

 

12. Splendid wildlife

The rarest of the rare species can be found in the hilly areas. From ibex to yak and a lot of other wildlife including endangered plants are located in the mountains. The love for wildlife and its splendour pulls people towards the hills.

 

 

Whatever may be the reason behind the affinity of people towards the mountains, they will never stop loving them. Having visited them once, they revisit the grandeur of the hills again and again.
