1. What Is Trekking?
Brief and Straightforward Guide What is trekking?
What is Trekking?
ad_unit_target='mainAdUnit'; X Close this window Trekking often refers to multi-day hiking trips through rural, often rugged territory. Many people who are trekkers engage in longer trips through entire regions of the world, using trekking as a way of getting from place to place. It can be incorporated with a number of other outdoor sports, such as rock climbing or backpacking Trekking is different from other sorts of travel for a few different reasons. It tends to be less-structured than other sort of travel, as weather conditions and topography help influence travel plans more than plane flights or hotel availability. As travelers move on foot through often-rural areas, trekking gives travelers an up-close view of incredible scenery. Many trekkers travel through isolated areas, giving them an experience much different than those who travel in organized groups to more-popular destinations. It often allows them to interact with nature, doing anything from climbing a rock wall to navigating across a mountain or entire mountain range. Trekking can be done anywhere in the world. Several areas are particularly popular with travelers, including the mountainous regions such as the Himilayas in Asia and the Andes in South America. However, treks have been organized in other less-touristed areas regions on almost every

Q: What is Historical Trekking?
A: Historical Trekking (also called Period Trekking, Experimental Archeology, or Experiential Anthropology) is a hobby where we as 21st century people attempt a task someone in our chosen time period would have done, using only the tools and equipment they would have used, or the knowledge we have gleaned from research. Whether you are interested in the Longhunter of the 18th Century and you are out on a hunt using only period clothing and flintlock, or if your interest lies in the Mountainman of the 19th Century, and you want to use period traps to try and catch beaver, even if your interest is in cooking, and you limit yourself to the kitchen-ware and foods of your chosen period and a bed of coals for heat, yet you never leave your house, you are involved with the hobby of Historical Trekking. This hobby gives us more insight into the daily lives of the people in our chosen time period, and helps to make us better historians.

Welcome to northeast Minnesota's Boundary Country and the "Wild North"- home of the Boundary Waters (BWCA), the Gunflint Trail, Lake Superior's North Shore, and Mesabi Iron Country. Boundary Country Trekking specializes in providing the finest adventure vacations northeast Minnesota has to offer. Over fifty years ago we started guiding canoe-fishing trips. We now offer a complete line of outfitted BWCAW canoe adventures. We began offering dog sled trips in l978 and we are still mushing. We introduced yurt skiing to the Midwest in 1984. We now operate two yurts along the Banadad Ski Trail along with North America's two premier Lodge to Lodge Ski programs. The Superior Hiking Trail's Lodge to Lodge Hiking program was introduced in the 1990's by the Lutsen-Tofte Tourism Association. In 1994, the Association asked us to take over the program's operation. Today, Lodge to Lodge Hiking is one of our most requested adventures. In 2003, we were asked by the organizers of the paved Mesabi Trail to develop a Lodge to Lodge Road Biking program on the Trail. As a result, Lodge to Lodge Bicycling on the Mesabi Trail was launched in 2004.

For Patagonia Trekking this is the place!!! Trekking in Chile's Futaleufu River valley allows you to immerse yourself in the spectacular physical beauty of the best kept secret of Patagonia, whose climate is often sunnier and kinder than Torres del Paine National Park. Most of our treks follow along the ‘Ruta de Los Arrieros’. These trails wind around lakes, through river valleys, and if you choose, over high spectacular mountain passes. They are more than just a wilderness experience. The trails are still the routes used by the locals to travel to their isolated ranches or settlements. It can be a wonderful cultural experience of traveling "back in time". Trekking in Patagonia at its best!

Ground Truth Trekking There is no road beneath my feet
No hearth at journey's end
And while I travel I may meet
Some beasts but rarely men
I scramble over rocky pass
To float the rising stream
From glacier's snout to ocean bay
And all that lies between
Past glacier, wood, and river's bend
My weary feet plod on

Trekking in Nepal

My desire to continue working as a Head Chef on Wall Street in New York City grew progressively weaker as the urge to travel gained irresistible strength. I needed new taste sensations and wanted to find the roots of my vegetarianism. Something had to give and that something would be my apartment leasethat most holy of covenants in Manhattan. It was time to leave the city and ship out for a trek around Mt. Annapurna in the Himalayas of Nepal. Arriving in Katmandu, Nepal, prior to the autumn trekking and climbing season, was like being the first to arrive at a party. Frenzied innkeepers and merchants scurried around the empty streets preparing for the imminent onslaught of thousands of trekkers and a lesser number of climbers. My wife and I settled into an entirely deserted hotel and then set out to relieve our building appetites. Green Village (vegetarian) Restaurant's quiet and restful courtyard is a lovely refuge from the bustle of Katmandu, and we were lucky to find it. We ordered the meal that would sustain us during our upcoming trek: daal bhaat. Composed of basmati rice, soupy daal lentils, and a small taste of green vegetables, it is a simple and nutritious all-you-can-eat affair. It took an hour to reach the table, but was well worth the wait.
