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.
Each of our treks show the level of difficulty, in relation to each other.
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 our currently our shortest and lowest altitude trek. 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!
