This International Mountain Day, we're appreciating the tall and majestic peaks in Pakistan
From the volcanic beauty of Fuji to the snow-capped peaks of the majestic Himalayas, mountains are undoubtedly one of the most exotic landscapes in the world.
The International Mountain Day is celebrated on the 11th of December every year, with the intent to remind people the ecological importance of the treasures which host about half of the world's biodiversity hotspots. (The first time it was celebrated was in 2003!)
With the goal to encourage sustainable development, the United Nations has decided the theme 'Mountain Biodiversity' for 2020 .
Many Pakistani Twitterati took this occasion to appreciate Pakistan's own tall and beautiful peaks.
All hail the majestic K2
Snowy Skardu and Karakoram
And a little of Naran
Not just Pakistanis, peoples across the world shared pictures too
Admiring the fluffy wildlife
And just being in the spotlight
We hear you
So reduce your carbon footprint, and take care of these national treasures!
