Please read carefully to ascertain the grading for each of our treks. We want you to have the most enjoyable experience possible, but it is important to let you know how strenuous a trek may be.
Grade A (An Easy Endeavour): the highest altitude is around 3000 metres walking for about 3-5 hours each day.
Grade B (Mildly difficult): The highest altitude is around 4000 metres walking for about 4-6 hours each day.
Grade C (difficult): The highest altitude is around 4500 metres and walking about 5-7 hours a day.
Grade D (Quite the Challenge): The highest altitude is around 5000 metres and walking about 6-9 hours a day. At this level, we highly recommend previous trekking experience and where possible, in a similar climate.
Grade E (Extremely demanding): The highest altitude is around 6000 metres and walking about 7-12 hours a day. To be able to fulfil all the criteria of level D plus extra factors such as significant difficulty when encountering river crossings, very high passes, glaciers or trekking peaks where climbing skills may be required.
Note: We grade them from A to E. A being the easiest. We ask you to bear in mind the weather conditions for the time of year you are visiting. For example, humidity can make it difficult to walk in. The altitude is also something you must keep in mind as air is thinner and oxygen intake is harder.
