Trekking is not necessarily mountaineering; it is walking for a number of days, usually on uncharted paths, in challenging environments which are likely to be hilly or mountainous.
As treks take longer than hikes, the environmental impact can be greater. In areas where there are no means of transport and areas of great natural beauty; usually in mountainous areas. It is more intense and energetic than hiking.
Trekking is also known as backpacking but should not be confused with mountaineering. It is popular in the Himalayan foothills in Nepal, India, and Bhutan and Karakorum in Pakistan. It is more challenging than hiking because you will be walking for multiple days in a row.
Treks usually start in one place and end in a different one. The distance can vary anywhere from ~40 km to several hundred kilometers away. Some of the most popular treks can take a couple of weeks to complete.When trekking in some locations, you may have the option to stay at small lodges, mountain huts or even bed and breakfasts along the way.
