What is the difference between hiking and trekking?
Hiking in Nepal is enjoyable walking in beautiful natural environments on well trodden trails. Hiking does not present the same challenges that we may encounter when trekking, which is more about getting to difficult to reach places. Treks usually last longer and can take us off the beaten track and into more rugged terrain than hiking, requiring us to carry more with us, and sometimes bordering on mountaineering.
Usually, when we think of hiking in Nepal, we think of walking long distances and stretching ourselves more than we usually do, but this does not always have to be the case. Many good hikes take only part of day. A very short hike could be less than a mile on a nature trail by a campground. On the other hand a hike can indeed be a very long walk. Some people hike for days, weeks, or even months at a time. A few people have even hiked for several years at a time.
Our bodies were designed for motion and we need to move in order to stay fit and healthy. Walking is one of the best exercises there is for our body. It doesn't put the same stress on our joints as running does, but still gets our body working hard enough for it to benefit from the exercise. Hiking is walking. So it is good for us, but it is more than just walking. It's also about the pleasure of communing and interacting safely with nature.
Nepal is situated in the lap of Himalayas, between Tibet to the North and India to the South. The country can be divided north - South into three geographic belts:
This tremendous geographical diversity makes Nepal a paradise for Nepal hiking and trekking in Nepal alike, and for the mountaineers and climbers for whom the absolute joy of standing at the highest points on the earth is unimaginable. Nepal has over 1300 peaks between 5500m and 8848m above sea level. But we do not necessarily have to go that high up to enjoy spectacular surroundings, and that is what hiking in Nepal is all about. Hiking in Nepal offers us a chance to really enjoy its natural beauty and diversity, the spectacular views of mountains and deep valleys, as well as a chance to become acquainted with the Nepalese people's lifestyle, their art, architecture and cultural traditions. The Hill Region has many popular destinations for hiking and trekking, but there are also many other popular areas in Nepal for one or two day hikes.
