The history of trekking goes back to its roots in the 19th century in the regions of South Africa, where this word became known in the language of the Boers, who used the word trek to signify the great journey, which they had to take after being expelled by the British from their own land. They travelled through the great plains, mountains, and deserts to finally establish the republics of Orange, Transvaal, and Natal. This exotic history of emigration, looking for one's own homeland and a rich background gave rise to the application of this name, by people of different nationalities, to a specific form of high mountain tourism. Undoubtedly, the most attractive place to practice this type of tourism is Nepal, being a space, which is diversified taking into consideration the beauty of the landscape, a melting pot of cultures and religions, and at the same time a country famous for the hospitability of its inhabitants and extraordinary taking into account the unique monuments of architecture and art established on the grounds of a rich and old culture. This type of exploration of mountain regions has some characteristic features, ie.:
- Covering long distances during many days of travelling on foot;
- Climbing to significant altitudes, which is linked to experiencing the specifics of acclimatisation in high mountain terrain;
- It is a type of tourism practiced in areas with a poorly developed infrastructure.
