Trek ‘Level of Difficulty’
Each of our most popular treks show the level of difficulty, in relation to each other.
Easiest treks are just what they say. They’re the easiest, lowest altitude treks you’ll find in the Nepal Himalaya! You can still expect to trek for 1-3 days, but not above 2,000m/6,500ft. With this level of effort, you can still enjoy some spectacular Himalayan mountain views! Ask us about organising a shorter trek for you.
Easier treks are mostly steady walking, with an occasional moderate climb. If you’re short of time or concerned about the physical demands of trekking in Nepal, Ghorepani Poon Hill is a great option. It’s one of our shortest and lowest altitude treks. Making it accessible to anyone with a moderate level of fitness. Poon Hill is one of the most popular vantage points in the Himalaya, providing spectacular views of the Annapurna mountains. We guarantee it will take your breath away!
Moderate treks are mostly intermediate level walking, with some challenging climbs. Our popular treks to Annapurna Base Camp and Tengboche to see stunning views of Everest are both moderate. You trek right into the heart of the Himalaya up to around 4,000m/13,000ft and enjoy spectacular views. Yet you walk for less days and without climbing to the highest passes.
Challenging treks include some strenuous climbs to summit or cross high mountains and passes. They also tend to be longer treks that require a good level of stamina. Push yourself to the limit on the famous Annapurna Circuit or cross Everest Base Camp off your bucket list!
Very Challenging Treks
Very challenging treks are longer treks crossing multiple high mountain passes. You need an excellent level of fitness to partake in these treks.
