Hiking is an outdoor activity which consists of walking in natural environments, often on hiking trails. Hiking is one of the fundamental mountaineering activities on which many others are based. Many beautiful places in Uzbekistan Mountains can only be reached by hiking, and enthusiasts regard hiking as the best way to see nature. It is seen as better than a tour in a vehicle of any kind (or on an animal) because the hiker's senses are not intruded upon by distractions such as windows, engine noise, airborne dust and fellow passengers. Hiking over long distances or over difficult terrain does require some degree of physical ability and knowledge.
