Trek Grade

Easy difficult trekking is ideal for anyone who leads a fairly active life. The walking sections on these trips are relatively easy and do not exceed 5 to 6 hours a day. It is possible however to design 'easier' three to four day treks with perhaps only three to four hours walking per day on request.
2. Moderate Difficult Trek
Moderate difficult trekking is a mixture of long and short walks. Hill-walking experience is desirable. Walking hours are limited to 7 hours each day. It is moderate due to altitude and other conditions that require a higher level of stamina than easy grade trips.
3. Challenging Difficult Trek
The Challenging difficult trekking is a combination of strenuous and moderate walks - normally 6 to 8 hours a day. These treks readily take an altitude of 4,500 meters above the sea level.The trek is physically demanding as we get to altitudes up to 4,000 m with side trips to higher elevations. 
4. Strenuous Difficult Trek
The Strenuous difficult trekking is the most strenuous and it tests your physical ability and patience. These trips may require a degree of mountaineering skills and you should be capable of carrying on at an altitude of 4000-5000 meters. Daily walking is approximately 7 hours. All trips to Tibet is “Strenuous” due to their higher altitude and climate conditions.
