Trekking is a kind of activity in which people like to trip through rural, rugged regions of the world. To get from place to place people sometimes combine trekking with such kinds of sports as backpacking or rock climbing.

          Trekking differs from other kinds of activity and possesses its own peculiarities as it depends greatly on weather, topography of the region than on hotel presence or its comfort. Trekkers always move only on foot and it gives them perfect possibility to be delighted with marvelous sceneries of the region. To visit isolated unique place of wild nature is more interesting for trekkers than to travel to popularized destinations. To climb a rock or to navigate through a mountain permit trekkers to communicate with untouched pieces of our planet.

          People can go trekking in any less-visited area of the world, but there are some regions that are rather popular with the trekkers, for e.x. the Andes in South America, the Himalayas in Asia.
