We have graded our trips
in four different categories and you should choose one that
suits you the most. Grading of a trek has been done keeping
in mind a lot of factors like the trip duration, the altitude,
the terrain, the no. of hours of walking everyday, the likely
temperatures and the level of fitness needed.
Easy: Easy walking holidays
with the occasional longer walks. Travelers need to be regular
walkers to fully enjoy the experience.
Usually having some long days and some steep ascents these
treks could go up to a fairly high altitude of 4500m. These
could include treks away from villages on ill-defined mountain
trails. A bit of a pre trek training would help.
Treks of demanding nature often enter remote alpine areas
and sometimes reach altitudes over 5500m. Some pre-trek training
such as hill walking, jogging or cycling is required.
These are extremely demanding treks, sometimes in very remote
areas on rough terrain. Participants should have at least
a basic knowledge of the use of crampons and ice axe, though
first time climbers may be accepted on some of the routes.
Pre-trek training is essential including either hill walking
with a backpack, jogging or cycling.
