Your Level of Fitness

Trekking Nepal can be challenging, so you need to consider your current fitness level when you choose a trek. The good news is, we have treks for everyone with a moderate level of fitness. We’ve met trekkers over the age of 70 on the easier trails like Ghorepani Poon Hill. We regularly see families trekking too.

Every trek has some tough uphill climbs. It’s the only way you’ll see some of the beautiful mountain views on offer! So if you don’t walk very often (including uphill), we recommend that you make a plan to get trekking fit before you come to Nepal.

Longer treks, crossing high-mountain passes demand a much higher fitness level. So you’ll only want to choose one of these treks if you’ve already got a great fitness level.

Challenging Trek

Each of our treks show the level of difficulty, in relation to each other.

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!
