Types and Grades of trekking in Nepal
Trekking is more enjoyable than climbing the peaks and offers spectacular scenic beauty. The Himalayan region, till now, has been comparatively less affected by the modern urban civilization with its industrial pollution. It provides an opportunity to be in natural surroundings and to get away from the milling crowds of the cities. The trekker usually returns home rejuvenated, and with new enthusiasm to take up the challenges of city life.

Trekking 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.
