As the refrain goes, there are two types of people in the world: those who like mountains and those who prefer beaches.
Beach people are extroverts, while mountain people tend to be introverts, one study found. But whichever you are, there's no denying the beauty of these amazing mountains, as photographed by travelers.
For its April photography contest, Intrepid Travel
asked travelers to submit photos of the wilderness, including national
parks, jungles and mountains. The mountain shots they received, in
particular, look amazing (check them out, below).
"We like to see nature the way nature intended: raw and rugged, wild
and weathered, preserved and protected," Intrepid said in a blog post.
The winner was Genevieve Schneider, who took a stunning photo of Bachalpsee Lake in Switzerland.
