If you dig into the past, you will know that trekking has come a long way from being a risky expedition to a fun and indulgent activity. In earlier days, trekking was roughly associated with the term primitive camping. You may relate primitive with something traditional, but it is not as old as you think.
When people used to travel around in the 50’s they used to take cotton canvas tents, equipment to lit open fires, poles for fishing, sheath and a clasp knife. Cooking had just one meaning and that was meat on a stick and cooking it over a fire. Trekking poles and shoes were also different from the present fashion.
The scene changed as times changed and we entered the 1960s. Cooking methods changed as pits were dug and earthen pots were placed in it so that the food gets cooked properly. As time passed, clothing materials used for tents evolved simultaneously. Bows and arrows were used for protection and this was the time when trekking poles were just introduced in the market.
