What is Trekking?

  • Trekking means a journey to be undertaken on foot in areas where motorised transport is generally not available.
  • Trekking always refers to walking on trails; it does not entail cross-country scrambling.
  • Trekking is not mountaineering but just days of walking.
  • Unlike hiking which can be very strenuous, trekking is only for pleasure and exercise, although at times it can certainly challenge one’s fitness.
