Hiking and tramping are two words that actually mean the same thing, but have different connotations depending on the culture you come from. To me, tramping is putting on the heavy 20 kg (44lbs) pack and going bush. Hiking, on the other hand, is the actual act of walking through the bush. However, others will argue that it’s the other way around. When using words like this, remember your target audience; don’t assume that everyone knows the exact context of which you are meaning.
