The United Nations General Assembly designated December 11 as “International Mountain Day / World Mountain day”. As of 2003, it has been observed every year to create awareness about the importance of mountains to life, to highlight the opportunities and constraints in mountain development and to build alliances that will bring positive change to mountain peoples and environments around the world.

What can you do on World Mountain Day
1. To create awareness about the mountains, their importance and their impact on the people who live near the mountains.
2. Raise awareness of global warming in the mountains.
3. Keep the mountains clean. If you are going on a trek or climbing the mountains do not leave behind the thrash. We should be responsible to Mother Nature during our travel.
4. Educate people about the role that mountains play in supporting billions up and downstream – by providing fresh water, clean energy, food and recreation.
