Grading is used to rate trekking difficulty. We have categorized trekking in four grades — Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Strenuous. Grading measures the difficulty of trekking trials technically and geographically. This means Easy and Moderate treks are suitable for all trekkers, while Difficult and Strenuous treks are suitable for seasoned trekkers who are physically fit and have plenty of trekking experiences.
These treks are suitable for novice travelers who do not have previous experience of trekking. You need to walk around five hours a day in average. These types of treks are generally of 2 to 5 days and reach an altitude of up to 3,000 meters. Trekking trails with Easy and Moderate grading are generally well-maintained.
These treks require around 6-7 hours of walking per day. Altitude can reach up to 4,000 meters above from sea level. You need not have previous trekking experience for such treks, but you need to be physically and mentally fit as well as have a positive attitude toward trekking. You must be mentally prepared to face altitude.
One needs to be physically and mentally fit as well as have previous trekking experience to hit these trekking trails. Be prepared to trek up to 5,000 meters from sea level in a rocky terrain. Positive attitude and determination are essential to walk up to 8 hours in a single day. But do not test your limit; inform your guides if you face any difficulty while walking.
In these treks, you need to cross high passes above 5,000 meters above sea level. You need to have experience of walking in thin air, rough terrains, some climbing experience, and technical knowledge to use trekking and climbing equipment like crampons and ice axe. Only a physically fit person with a positive attitude can complete this trek. These treks are best suited for travelers who want to test their limits and prefer raw adventure and wilderness. However, our experienced guides and support staffers make you feel comfortable and ensure that you are safe throughout the trek.
