In this page we explained the relative difficulty of our  Trekking tours. The difficulty grade is measured by a scale of THREE as Easy, Moderate and Strenuous. Each tour difficulty grade is indicated by our color gauge. On this page, the difficulty grade is listed in ascending order of difficulty.

Please make sure to read the explanation on difficulty grades before booking tours with us.

Obviously, length of the day, terrain, altitude and weather conditions are main factors that contribute to the difficulty of our tours. Since some of those factors are changeable, any system of grades can only provide a general indication of tour conditions. If you have any special physical or health conditions that we must be aware of, please report them when filling in our booking form or by contacting us by email.

All of our tours which include a significant amount of walking are considered to be treks. These range from short one or two hours long hikes on established trails to extended treks in wilderness areas, with a full trek crew and pack-animal support. The following grades should be considered in conjunction with each individual trek description.

EASY - suitable for most people in good health, these trips include only a short element of trekking, which is predominately on good paths and at low altitude.

MODERATE – this grade is suitable for most hikers and generally involves shorter days at moderate altitude, on good paths and tracks. However, a reasonable level of fitness is required as these treks can involve certain amounts of ascent and descent and the occasional long days.

STRENUOUS – toughest treks, physically challenging and suitable for experienced hikers who are used to intensive days. These treks can involve difficult and sometimes glaciated areas, as well as lengthy periods at high altitude.
