Nature has always been kind to its lovers and admirers. It has always been ready to offer them with whatever it has for them to shower with. But it is up to us how much we can take it! How much we can endeavor!
Nepal being a beautiful country with mountainous terrain and diversified landscape, trekking in Nepal has always been a topic of interest around the globe. The world’s highest peak- Mt. Everest and other towering picks has always allured millions of trekkers around. But trekking along these trials is not always easy. Every trial has its own demand. Some trials are easy; some are moderate while others are strenuous and more than strenuous. The physical endurance required to accomplish a trek differs from one to another.
Therefore, you need to make a right choice knowing your level of physical endurance. On the basis of the physical endurance required, we have categorized treks into following six categories:
The trekkers usually walk in the lower elevation region below 2000 m in level paths for about 5 hours a day at normal conditions. Trekking days extends from 10-12 days.
The elevation gain rises to 4000m and the hiking hour increases to 7 hours per day. You need to prepare yourself for a longer walk in not so well leveled paths in a colder atmosphere.
The elevation gain rises over 4000m with longer walks per day. Get ready for long walks, cold temperature, a risk of altitude sickness and steep climbs. Days of trekking extends to 16- 19 days considering the days required for acclimatization.
The elevation gain rises over 5000m. Trekkers have to walk along unleveled trials uphill and downhill. Steep ascend and descend is also necessary. As you need to acclimatize yourself, the trekking hours are normally 7-8 hours over 13-19 days span.
The trekkers require high physical endurance as they have to climb steep in a rugged terrain for 7-8 hours for 10-19 days. Trekkers should be able to cope with altitude variation and cold. Physical fitness of a trekker is mandatory.
Highly strenuous/ Challenging
The trekkers must be able to have high physical endurance with knowledge of climbing and dealing with the difficult and challenging terrain. In this grade of trek, the hiking rises to an elevation of 6000 m and over, therefore, climber should be able to withstand the cold weather in between those wild mountains. Albeit these treks are generally for the experienced trekkers and climbers.
