All our trips graded from Leisure Plus to Strenuous Plus describe the difference in difficulty between trips.
These grades should be considered as a guideline only and are designed to give you an idea of the participation required.
Grade 2 – Leisure Plus – This trip generally involves an average of 4 – 5 hours slow but steady walking in a day. This rating is for less than 7 days walk below 3500 metres. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy you trek.
Grade 3 – Moderate – Moderate trekking involves 5 – 6 hours a day walking at a steady pace below 4000 metres for around a 10 day trekking trip.
Grade 4 – Moderate Plus – This trip grade involves trekking up to 7 hours a day below 5000 metres for the duration of a 10 -15 day trip. Any reasonably active person should be able to manage these trips.
Grade 5 – Strenuous – Among the hardest available treks in Nepal, but still these treks are in reach of most normally active people however you must be fit. These trips go above 5000 metres and for the duration of 15 – 20 days walking up to 8 / 9 hours in a day.
Grade 6 – Strenuous Plus – This grade includes climbing peaks and the demanding treks in remote areas. Participants should have basic knowledge of use of crampons and ice axe skills are appreciated.
However first time climbers / experienced trekkers can also join these trips as we organize a Climbing Clinic Course on all our climbing trips to ensure our clients have the essential skills needed.
