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.
Moderate treks are mostly intermediate level walking, with some challenging climbs. Our Annapurna Base Camp Trek and Everest View Trek are both moderate treks. You trek in the heart of the Himalaya and enjoy spectacular views at around 4,000m/13,000ft. Yet you walk for less days and without climbing to the highest passes.
If you’re still unsure, get in touch and we’ll talk you through your options. We currently offer the following moderate treks:
