Here is not much difference between Hiking and Trekking in Nepal. Hiking is an initial part of trekking and relatively easier that still involve up and down on rural hilly areas below 3000 meters but offers glimpse of High Mountains views, while trekking takes you through the low land village to high Mountain pass up to almost 5, 600 meters.
