What Is Trekking?
Backpacking, hiking, mountaineering, and trekking are words that have become quite popular in the last decades and are sometimes used interchangeably, even though they have slightly different meanings. While backpacking usually refers to long travels that don’t require much money and often involve the use of public transportation, hiking can simply mean a one-day long walk in nature. Hiking, mountaineering, and trekking normally refer to activities that include walking on foot for the purpose of exploring a natural environment, be it full of trees and flowers, muddy, or rocky. While mountaineering is by definition an activity that involves exploring mountainous areas, hiking and trekking can take place in other environments as well.
Trekking is similar to hiking but not necessarily the same thing. Many use the term trekking to describe long journeys on uncharted paths while they reserve the term hiking for journeys on pre-charted paths. However, trekking does not necessarily takes place on foot, which makes things even more confusing.
While we may not establish a standard definition of trekking, we will use trekking in reference to any activity that involves exploring environments that have been little modified by humans, if at all. With this broader definition, we may consider activities such as backpacking, mountaineering, or hiking as included within a trekking experience.
