"In these hills, nature's hospitality eclipses all men can ever do. The enchanting beauties of the Himalayas, their bracing climate and the soothing green that envelopes you leaves nothing more to be desired. I wonder whether the scenery of these hills and the climate are to be surpassed, if equalled, by any of the beauty spots of the world. After having been nearly three weeks in Almora Hills, I am more than ever amazed why our people need go in Europe in search of health."

- Mahatama M.K. Gandhi

"These mountains are associated with the best memories of our race: Here, therefore, must be one of centers, not merely of activity, but more of calmness of meditation, and of peace and I hope some one to realize it."

- Swami Vivekananda
(replying to the address given to him by the people of Almora)

Mahatma Gandhi visited Kausani in 1929 for spending two days. He was so happy to see the unobstructed view of the Himalayan range spanning over 300 km that he called Kausani - The Switzerland of India. He extended his stay by another 12 days

1841 Pilgrim (Barron), while passing through  Pithoragarh,  wrote : ".............  The  first  view of   Pithoragarh is striking,
in one instant, when you reach the top of the pass (Chandak) which overlooks it,   a  wide  valley  bursts on the view, with
the  small  neat  military  cantonment,   fort  and scattecyan  villages,  and meandering streams,  which distribute fertility
to thousands of well cultivated fields....... I  was apprehensive, too, that the beauties  of Nainital had exhausted the store, and found that I was never in my life more mistaken."

This quote of Barron is true even for today's Pithoragarh.

in one instant, when you reach the top of the pass (Chandak) which overlooks it,   a  wide  valley  bursts on the view, with

अस्त्युत्तरस्यां दिशि देवतात्मा, हिमालयो नाम नगाधिराजः।
पूर्वापरौं तोयनिधी वगाह्य, स्थितः पृथिव्या इव मानदण्डः॥

"भारत की उत्तर दिशा में देव स्वरुप पर्वतराज हिमालय स्थित है। पूरब और पश्चिम में समुद्र का अवगाहन करता हुआ यह पृथ्वी के मानदण्ड की भांति स्थित है।"
                                                                                  महाकवि कालिदास (कुमारसम्भव, 5.1)

स्कन्द पुराण में हिमालय को पॉच भौगोलिक क्षेत्रों में विभक्त किया गया है:-

खण्डाः पत्र्च हिमालयस्य कथिताः नैपालकूमाँचंलौ ।
केदारोऽथ जालन्धरोऽथ रूचिर काश्मीर संज्ञोऽन्तिमः ।।

अर्थात हिमालय क्षेत्र में नेपाल ,कुर्मांचल (कुमाऊं) , केदारखण्ड़ (गढवाल), जालन्धर ( हिमाचल प्रदेश ) और सुरम्य काश्मीर पॉच खण्ड है।

दशकों पहले काका कालेकर ने टिहरी भ्रमण के दौरान पहाड़ की महिलाओं के गीतों को सुनकर कहा था कि यहां की महिलाओं के गीत वेदकाल के है और उनका दर्द आज भी उसी काल के जैसा है जो उनके करुण गीतों से बयां हो रहा है।दशकों बीते न जाने कितनी सरकारे आई और गई लेकिन आज भी न तो महिलाओं के करुण गीतों का सिलसिला रुका है और न ही उनका कष्ट। पलायन आरंभ से ही पहाड़ की समस्या रहा है।
