Trekking is something that is suitable for everyone. Depending on your physical health, appetite and available time, you can vary the intensity of treks that you go for. You can trek on paved roads or more challenging terrains. If it is something that you enjoy doing, challenge yourself by gradually varying the length and terrain type in your treks.
Mountaineering is one of the most difficult and challenging adventures. It pushes your body to the limits and increases fitness levels. With great feats of nature such as the Kilimanjaro, Everest, Nanda Parbat and so on, there is no limit to this activity.
