Trip Grading

All our trips graded from LEISURELY PLUS to STRENUOUS PLUS describe the difference between trips.  This Nepal trip grading should be considered as a guideline only and is designed to give you an idea of the participation required.

Grade 2- Leisurely Plus

This trip generally involves an average of 4 – 5 hours slow but steady walk in a day. This rating is for less than 7 days walk below 3500 meters. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy.

Grade 3 – Moderate

Moderate trekking involves 5 – 6 hours a day walking at a steady pace below 4000 meters for around 10 days trekking trip.

Grade 4 – Moderate Plus

This trip grade involves trekking up to 7 hours a day below 5000 meters for the duration of 10 -15 days 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 people however one must be fit. These trips go above 5000 meters 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 having basic knowledge of use of crampons and ice axes are appreciated, even though the first time climbers / experienced trekkers can also join it as we organize the CLIMBING CLINIC COURSE on all our climbing trips.
