Hiking is one of the most accessible physical activities, carried out for recreation, pilgrimages, educational Field Trips. Security agencies patrols and has aesthetic value. The subtle distinction between Hiking and trekking is that of duration only. Hiking involves long walks along the trail for a single day mostly, while Trekking is done for a number of consecutive days and nights. These strolls have significantly become first line of defense in keeping lifestyle diseases including obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and fatty liver at bay. Patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease by brisk walks have not only shown weight loss, but also reduction in higher levels of the liver enzymes like Alanine transaminase (ALT), Serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT), and Serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT). Regular walking has substantiated the increase in High-density lipoprotein (HDL) and decrease in low-density lipoprotein (LDL). Scientists investigate the links between walking and lifestyle diseases to guarantee its health benefits. Subsequently practice should be carried forward to ensure health benefits and research should seek to understand as to how Trekking and life style diseases are interlinked.
