How difficult are the treks?

The difficulty of any trek or walk depends on the hilliness of the terrain, altitude and time duration involved in the trek. Based on these factors, trekking in Nepal is graded as follows:

Soft treks: About a week to 10 days in duration, 4-5 hours’ walk a day, they generally don’t go above 4000 meters. For eg A Week Below Everest, Poonhill Trek

Moderate to fairly challenging treks: Longer treks going right into high mountain country above 4000m, to some of the famous mountaineering Base Camps with occasional crossing over high passes, involves 7-8 hours’ walk a day. For eg, Everest Base Camp Trek & Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Strenuous treks: Normally goes above 5500m and physically challenging, likely to include unfavorable weather conditions and strenuous activities. Should not be super fit but definitely not for beginners! For eg, Dhaulagiri Trek & Makalu 3 Cols Trek
