Nepal Trekking Grade

Nepal Trekking Grade

In order to enjoy your trekking in Nepal necessary to know trekking Grade of Nepal which treks matches most with your physical capabilities. For many of our treks, you can choose between staying in tea-house or camping.
• The total duration of the trekking. 
• The duration of stay at high altitude (+3000m). 
• The maximum difference in altitude per day. 
• The condition of the terrain. 
• The average duration of the daily stages. 
• The night temperatures.
Nevertheless we want to warn our trekkers that the level of difficulty of a trek is very subjective. Weather conditions, your physical condition, possible health problems during the trek and other factors can have an important influence on the way you experience a trek. Trekking in the following ranks as below:

Trekking Grade: Easy
For trekkers with no previous experience, we offer a diverse range of easy trekking. By easy, we mean that trek involves no difficult climbing or ascents to high altitudes, takes usually no more that a week and is suitable for anyone. However, you should not think that loss of height means loss of interest; while our more challenging treks get you closer to a small number of mountain ranges; lower altitude treks often provide colorful horizons of a whole series of ranges. High or low, mountain villages reachable only by several days walk from the road such as Annapurana Ghorepani trekking, Jomsom valley trekking, Shivapuri trekking,village tour, Siklis trek ,the Royal Trek and chisapani trekking. Whilst you will still pass through many remote villages, these regions are so unspoilt as to have no tea-houses, and you will need to camp. Again, the range of mountains you can view on these treks is superb.

Trekking Grade: Moderate 
These trips are not so hard. Maximum walking 6-7 hours and it's below 4000 meters. Any reasonably fit person should be able to manage these trips. This grade applies for 7-16 days walking up and down and climbs to higher altitudes, where you will be rewarded with close-up views of big mountains. For a well-trodden route with good tea-house facilities.

Grade 3 Moderate + :
walking up and down and climb to higher altitudes, where you will be rewarded with close-up views of big mountains. For a well-trodden route with good tea-house facilities .They ascend to altitudes of up to 500m and involve some steep climbing.For a popular and spectacular trek, with the possibility of staying in well-developed tea houses, the Annapurna circuit is a good choice. A gradual ascent through a green river alley will lead you up to a number of high passes, where you will reach the altitude of 5416m. This trek will give you a close insight into Tibetan culture. Another understandably popular trek, with good tea house facilities, is the Everest Base camp. The goal of this trek speaks for itself, but in achieving it, you cross a glacier, see Mt.Everest and a whole variety of soaring peaks and experience the rich Sherpa culture. For a real adventure in wild and Makalu Base Camp the Makalu trek traverses many high passes before reaching the Base Camp at 5000m. The Tibetan plateau of Mustang is a wild, treeless desert. The last two treks are possible only if you camp.

Trekking Grade: Strenuous or Hard
We consider this level the hardest available trek in Nepal, but still these treks are in reach of most people. However, you must be very fit for this sort of trip. Those who suffer from asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease or complicated medical conditions adversely affected by strenuous exercise may not participate. These trips are above 5000 meters and for the duration of 20 days and above.All are camping expeditions. The exception is the Simikot trek, which is very remote with a truly undeveloped culture (quite a shock.) This can be accomplished in a shorter time (7-14 days.) However, you can also use the little-visited Simikot as the starting point for a trip to Mount Kailash (20 days.)

A trek through the isolated Dolpo region us one of the few good possibilities for the summer months, as the area gets little rain. Manaslu, like Annapurna, is a circuit trek and passes through Tibetan villages in a little-visited, restricted area. A trip to Kanchanjunga, the third highest mountain in the world, will take you into the remote Far East region of Nepal.
