Simple Thesis for preferring Hills over Lowland: Some of our Ancestors could have been faced with the Choice between warm, rich of Food, swampy Lowlands with a lot of Malaria, many predators and bad sight between the Trees. Or colder Hilland with less Food, less Predators, no Malaria, save Places in Steep Cliffs and a good sight for nearing Predators. Well, seems, that the hardwired love for higher Places was the better Gene.
