Trekking Grades in Nepal

 Trekking Grades: 
We have graded the treks to help you to decide if a particular trek is suitable for you. However, You must first make a realistic assessment of   your fitness level and experience before taking on any trek. The table   below shows how we grade our treks, but you should note that taking   longer to do a particular trek may well reduce its difficulty. You must   also consider altitude as a serious factor, as fitness levels are not   necessarily an indicator as to ability to cope with high altitude. All   treks to altitude contain acclimatisation days to help you achieve your   goal.

Easy: Easy   trekking involves walking for 4 to 5 hours a day, for 3 to 7 days, and  at altitudes of no more than 2,000m. There are plenty of ups and downs   on well-maintained trails. This   type of trek is best suited for   first-time trekkers who lead a reasonably active life.

Moderate: These   involves longer treks of 5 to 10 days on maintained   trails. They  include day excursions to higher elevations but below 3,500m.  It is desirable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these treks  we climb from around 900m to 3,000m.
Moderate to Strenuous: It is a   reasonably demanding trek at an altitude up to 4000m with side trips  to higher elevations.These are generally on defined trails. We walk   around 6 to 7 hours a day for 10 to 15 days.
Strenuous: These   treks must be fully supported. The altitude attained between 3500 to   5000m. & this trek also involves several night stays above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit & enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas.

Very Strenuous:
This trek   is best described as Alpine Trek.This trek is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack as the   treks sometime will be in very remote areas reaching crossing. During trek, you  have to cross snow - covered passes in very remote areas or climb up to  6500m. There it is normally desirable to have some previous experience   of handling axes & crampons. It is essential to accept medical certificates prior to start   the trek.
