Not to be confused with trekking, mountaineering specifically refers to climbing mountains. A combination of climbing and trekking, it requires more technical know-how than trekking alone; though even a hike in the mountains, when you include a bit of scrambling and rock climbing, can be counted as mountaineering. So you needn't be a complete professional!
Mountaineering has its roots in the pursuit of reaching the highest point (summit) of a mountain, but it has branched out into specialist areas including rock-craft, snow-craft, and skiing. All require experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety. Whichever one you choose, it's an exhilarating pursuit!
