Mountaineering or mountain climbing is the sport, hobby or profession of hiking, skiing, and climbing mountains. While mountaineering began as attempts to reach the highest point of unclimbed mountains it has branched into specialisations that address different aspects of the mountain and consists of three areas: rock-craft, snow-craft and skiing, depending on whether the route chosen is over rock, snow or ice. All require experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety. While It has been started about 5,300 years ago but it has been taken a new style to adopt a newes trend which is the mountain camping. you can see in my recent post some amazing images of mountain camping.The value of а hobby is whеn yоu gеt more оut of it thаn you put intо it.
