TREKKING GRADES

To help you choose the right trekking trip we grade each trek based on terrain, length of walks and climate. Most of our treks require little or no technical experience so as long as you’re fit and come with a positive attitude there won’t be a mountain high enough.

Easy
You’ll be walking for around 2-4 hours each day, with the odd longer day. It’s easy terrain with gentle ascents and descents. Suitable for anyone in good health.

Moderate
You’ll enjoy 3 – 6 hours daily walks over rugged terrain with regular ascents and descents. The max altitude is c 3,000m, so requires a reasonable level of fitness.

Demanding
Tough half or full-day walks over rough terrain with steep ascents and descents (up to 1,000m a day). Good physical condition is essential and preparation advisable.

Strenuous
Full-day 6-8 hour walks. Ascents and descent are up to 1,000m at altitudes up to 6,000m. The environments are challenging so an excellent physical condition and trekking experience is essential
