As we live in a very globalized place, our appreciation for rich natural resources, biodiversity became more important than ever before. We even would like to hunt down all the possible privileged geographic locations and continue our explorations. Some tourists like to do it on horseback while others on foot. More adventurous people do mountain climbing, kayaking or even just camping at various spots. It is mainly the flora and fauna of these natural places, the uniqueness of its landscapes and mountains.
