Trekking is simply adventurous walking; not climbing or mountaineering and in a practical aspect is surprisingly straightforward. You walk into the countryside free from roads and discover villages caught in a time warp and terraced field stacked up huge hillsides.
Therefore, the trekking is little more than a pleasant walk, admiring the terraced slopes and wandering through incredible mountainous landscapes. But there are predominantly challenges due to the physical effort required: in addition to the inspiring mountains, there are huge hills, some of which must be crossed on foot.
To enjoy the Himalayas you don't have to be a tough outdoors person but some sort of exercise before starting – maybe a couple of months before will make life easy.
