Also, some of the participants took an active part in the Moscow and St. Petersburg marches.
The fact is that the tourism we are doing now was born in a country that is no longer on the map (USSR). Then people were interested in visiting the untouched corners of their vast homeland, and the state was interested in maintaining the cheapest and most cost-effective type of recreation. So gradually people went hiking at different levels, and with the growth of experience, claims for more difficult routes also grew. Over time, it became necessary to classify these routes in order to provide a certain level of their security.
This is how the rules of independent travel evolved. To regulate the development of tourism, the path of mountaineering was chosen - sport, which is much easier from an organizational point of view. There are public organizations (federations) that regulate their sport themselves, write rules, classify routes, etc. The costs of the state are minimal - equipment rental, organizational issues with premises, etc. What makes it convenient for the tourists themselves - org issues are resolved, somewhere the very opportunity to study is simplified. But this is the background.
What we have now. There are rules for conducting trips. They are somehow finalized (at least have such an opportunity) by experienced tourism masters. When conducting a hike, each organized group should follow a sequence of steps to reduce the risk of accidents on the hike. Next, the group should bring their route for assessment to more experienced people from the route qualification commission (ICC) for assessment. The commission looks at the route, communicates with the group and decides on the possibility of going through the hike. This is how it should be and, by and large, this is how it is.
There is a certain classification (ranking) of routes in tourism. It grew out of the experience already gained and may well change further. Its meaning is to build up experience gradually and to protect against overestimating one's strength and underestimating the route. Accordingly, there are requirements for the participants and leaders of the campaigns. Well, as a general rule, there are rules describing the main points of what can and should be done and what not.
In a person, to a certain extent, there is a craving for self-esteem and the assessment of others, and a clear classification increases the adequacy of such an assessment and pushes for development.
This approach can be considered sports tourism. It can be said more formally that a sports trip is activities related to the movement of a person in the natural environment on any transport or without it, alone or as part of a group, with cognitive, health-improving, sports and other purposes. This sounds somewhat formal, because we can say that a hike is a movement and achievement of some goal in a wilderness area, be it a sports obstacle (summit), or an obstacle on the way to an exclusive view (pass, summit), or a peculiar perception of the view after the obstacle passed (route).
Is it possible to believe a person who says that he is not interested in sports, and at the same time tries to compare his trip? Is it possible to believe a person if he says that he is not interested in sports, and at the same time he is going to the highest point of Europe? How to relate to a person who says that he is not interested in the rules of hiking, i.e. he is not an athlete, and at the same time he skips over his experience, neglecting other people's experience, leading people to an event that they cannot afford? Is it arrogant to call a person's desire to take advantage of someone else's experience (the rules of sports tourism) as a sport? These are already rhetorical questions aimed at realizing what you want from tourism.
Probably not worth saying that you can enjoy communicating with people, communicating with nature, enjoying solitude even within the framework of categorical trips. Moreover, at any age of a lifelong hike, it may be worth thinking about.
It so happened that from the USSR we inherited this or that division into types of tourism: hiking, mountain, skiing, cycling, water, etc. We will talk mainly about hiking and mountain trekking.
This division is rather arbitrary and is due to history rather than logic. Although it is. Initially, there was such a division, which survived until the end of the 80s. The climbers got the peaks they categorized - this was at one time lobbied at the highest level. Mountain tourists - everything above 3000m, but only passes, to the peaks up to 89g. they were forbidden to walk. For pedestrian tourists - the vast expanses of the USSR, but without the high mountains. This was piously vowed until 1989, with the support of a slight enmity between the classes. Now the lines have faded, but some hereditary tendencies have persisted.
Mountain tourism today is, as a rule, a hike full of technical obstacles, it may well be close to settlements. It is important to maintain certain proportions in complexity and experience. In modern tourism, there has been a small division into two subspecies. Tour-alp (conventionally) - its essence is in technically rich, as light as possible (respectively, low-autonomous) with a small mileage and duration of movement in a particular area. The second is, as a rule, long hikes in the highlands, not much different from hiking.
