A heavy backpack. Long distance. Technical difficulties are not uncommon. Variable weather. Heat during the day and frost at night. Wet clothes after rain. Instant food and uncomfortable sleeping. Camps "in the wild" hurriedly rolled up before dawn.
This is how trekking can look like. It may or may not. It is the multitude of varieties that causes this form of activity to be undertaken by crowds of tourists today. The trekking adventure began many of us and probably in many cases resulted in more advanced activities in the mountains. Who, however, sometimes doesn't like to just wander around in a nice area? Just. Pack the most necessary things into your backpack and go straight ahead.
Trekking offers countless possibilities. Virtually no boundaries. There are easy and difficult varieties. Trekking can be practiced by anyone who has any physical condition and has a pair of comfortable shoes. Beginners will choose short trips without major technical difficulties as their first goal. All-day walk along the tourist trail and warm soup in the hostel. Those more experienced will take a few days hike in the mountains with accommodation at an available campsite. They'll cook the liofus, and they will be enough for sleeping with a simple foam pad. The old bends of trekking, with all modest belongings on their backs, will venture into the wilderness and for many weeks will not bow their heads towards civilization.
