The United Nations General Assembly has proclaimed 11 December the International Day of Mountains. From 2003, the day is observed each year to celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of mountains.
Facts & Figures
They provide sustenance and well-being for 915 million people, but also indirectly benefit billions more living downstream.
Ninety percent of the world’s mountain dwellers live in developing countries, where a vast majority live below the poverty line and 1 out of 3 faces the threat of food insecurity.
Mountains provide 60-80 percent of the world's freshwater - without which sustainable development that aims to eliminate poverty and hunger would not be possible.
Mountains have a key role to play in providing renewable energy, especially through hydropower, solar power, wind power and biogas.

The Cowal Way is one of the Scottish fantastic long distance trail crosses the Cowal Peninsula from south-west to north-east, beginning at Portavadie to Inveruglas. The 57ml/92km footbath through some of the most beautiful and landscape in Scotland. The trail across forestry tracks, hillsides, shorelines and lochs. The Cowal Way site http://www.cowalway.co.uk/ provide great information also Cowal Way with Isle of Bute by Michael Kaufmann and Jame Mclucki very handy and informative to have it during the trip.
The Cowal Way is quiet compared by the West Highland Way you can walk for hours without meeting anyone. The path is very well waymarked and there are nice places for wild-camping.. You pass villages were you can buy things and refill your supplies. I think the most challenging part is just after Lochgoihead to carin it is quite uphill and tough especially if you have a heavy rucksack on your back. In places were the path is less clear the white markers are helpful to locate your direction. After Strachur on the way to Lettermay there are some very boggy sections were you might have to go off the path sometimes through the worst parts. If you looking for a quiet long distance walk with beautiful surrounding then We would definitely recommend The Cowal Way.
