Hiking is a recreational activity that involves walking or trekking through natural landscapes, typically in outdoor settings such as mountains, forests, or trails. You will need a map and bag with the necessary stuff, as in our Hiking Map and Backpack cursor. Hiking allows one to immerse in nature and explore natural environments. It provides opportunities to appreciate scenic landscapes, wildlife, plants, and natural features like waterfalls, lakes, or valleys. It presents challenges such as steep climbs, rough terrains, or long distances, which can be physically and mentally stimulating.
