Barren Hills to Majestic Mountains

Weekend Image Post – Hills and Mountains

Barren hills or majestic mountains offer spectacular views. Mountains are generally less preferable for human habitation as the weather is harsher and less food is available. But more than half of humanity depends on mountains for water as most of the world’s rivers are fed from mountain sources. Most people enjoy hiking, hillwalking, skiing, rock climbing, and climbing steep mountains as a hobby or profession. Ski resorts are popular tourist destinations.

Weekend image post brings you some amazing and majestic images of hills and mountains.
