What are the major difference between trekking and mountaineering?

People often wonder about the difference between trekking and mountaineering.In fact many people even use it interchangeably. However there are fine lines of distinctions between these two methods of conquering a hill.

The most prominent distinction is that of difficulty. While mountaineering involves climbing high peaks of a mountain through rough paths, trekking is comparatively easier and involves climbing on a lower mountain or hill.

A trek generally lasts for about 2-3 days and you might have to stay in tents, huts and lodges during your climb.

Mountaineering on the other hand lasts much longer than a trek and involves proper physical and mental training. You might need to know how to climb on ice paths or rocky ones.

Mountaineering often involves oxygen regulation too.
