Getting access to some of the most beautiful places in the world is what the treks are designed for. While you are at an advantage you also want to be aware of the physical challenges that lie ahead. Many of the villages and most of the mountains have climates that are specific to them and are amazing to see, it's almost otherworldly. Other than the legalities that once prevented outsiders from entering these areas there is the challenge of reaching them. So it is important to understand the physical demands that are required for each trek.
Each adventure planned has different levels of difficultly that you have to achieve before taking on the trek. These are specified for safety reasons as we want to make sure you do not select a trek that you are unable to do. Some of these are casual strolls that are less physically demanding and others require more activity and elevation adjustments that your body must be prepared for as well as longer routes and higher climbs. This is an experience that should be for everyone and we've identified them thoroughly so that you can be aware. Here we provide a list of grades that come with each hike that will prepare you for the adventure ahead.
Easy: These treks will stay under 2000m elevations with level paths and as much transport as possible combined with short hiking periods over 5 days. The physical agility of a person must be enough to handle 5 hours of walking time per day.
Demanding: There are steep climbs and hikes over 4000m over longer periods of time. There are days to acclimatization provided but endurance is tested during the trek. These are generally longer days of 10 or 15 days.
Challenging: Altitudes of over 5000 m are part of the hike. Physically demanding therefore hikers are required to meet the demands of the hike. These are planned in 7 to 8 hour hikes over the span of 10 to 15 days.
