Treks Grades

Our Treks have been graded Easy, Moderate and Strenuous depending on their difficulty. (More difficult treks are possible, but we would tend to categorise them as expeditions). We have listed a definition for each category.

We strongly advise against being too ambitious first time out – most trekkers return to Nepal again and again you can gradually increase your trek grade each time.

Easy:

 These trips can be enjoyed by anyone who leads a reasonably active life. The walking part of the trip is fairly easy, usually between 5 and 6 hours a day.
Note: Even on a easy grade trek there will be tough uphill sections on some days.

Moderate:

You will be walking 5-7 hours a day and will encounter some steep uphill and down hill sections. Some days may be at altitude. You should be fit before considering taking moderate grade trek.

Strenuous:

A combination of moderate of strenuous walks, with some very steep uphill and down hill sections, often at altitude. You will generally be walking 6-8 hours a day. You should be fit and should prepare physically before taking a strenuous trek.

Please not that the grading system is not a straight forward measure of how for you are walking.
Rather it is an overall indication ho how tough it will be and it takes into account the number of hours trekking, altitude gain/ loss and trail conditions (rough track, steep uphill etc.) and usual temperatures. So even though a trek is grade easy it does not mean you will never feel tired. Similarly inexperienced trekkers need not necessarily avoid treks graded Strenuous.

Finness

On any trek, there are some steeps ascents and descents so you require a reasonable level of fitness. The more physically fit you are, the more easily your body will adapt to hiking in the Himalayas. All treks demand a good day’s walking and it goes without saying that you should be pretty certain that you will enjoy a walking holidays before you consider trekking in Nepal. However you don’t have to be young or super-ft and age in itself is no barrier. There is physical exertion, but it is sustainable. Most people in good health who have prepared physically will have no problem in enjoying themselves. Before making your choice, things to consider are the duration of your trip. Its grading, style of accommodation and maximum and average altitude.


Altitude and Acclimatization

It is common in the Himalayas to trek above 4,500 and sometimes 5,500m. There is no need to worry unduly about altitude, but above 3,000 air becomes thinner and your performance may be affected. No one understands why some people are affected and others not.
Being young strong and fit is no guarantee of success. The only way to acclimatize is to ascend slowly. Our routes have been carefully designed based a year of experience managing possible altitude related difficulties. On this trek we do not ascend above 5,600.

Be aware that altitude sickness can be fatal, so if your leader advises you to stay at a certain altitude or descend, please do as instructed. He has the experience and is there to ensure your safety. If you do need to descend you will be accompanied by one of our team and a porter and will be well looked after. The descent may be just a short – term measure and does not necessarily mean you will be unable to complete your ascent. There is no shame in being affected or not reaching the highest point on a trek.

In addition we carry a Portable Altitude Chamber (PAC) on all of your trekking trips in Nepal. If you are suffering form altitude sickness and conditions do not allow for an immediate descent your leader will arrange for you to use the PAC. The PAC works by increasing the pressure inside the chamber, using a foot pump. At high altitude, this increased pressure delivers a therapeutically significant amount of extra oxygen which simulates a descent.

    If you wear contact lenses, dust can be a big problem. If you are on a long trip you should also take the prescription for your glasses.

Insurance

Our tour prices do not include insurance however it is a condition of joining our tours that travelers are fully insured for any medical expenses they might incur while traveling. At the start of your tour the Tour Leader will ask to see your insurance document and will note down the policy number and emergency contact number.
We recommended a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers repatriation and evacuation in case of a medical emergency, cancellation and curtailment as well as baggage and valuables, If your tour involves certain adventurous activates (I.e. trekking, white water rafting or scuba diving etc) You will need to make sure your policy specifically covers these activates. You may also need specific cover for expensive camera equipment.

Many credit card companies offer “complementary travel insurance” however the majority of such policies offer virtually no cover and will not be accepted as adequate travel insurance. If you are planning on using credit card insurance you must bring along proof that the policy covers medical emergencies. Failure to be able to provide such proof to the Tour Leader will result in you being compelled to purchase a new approved policy before you can join the tour.


Vaccinations

It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain any vaccinations, Precautionary or preventative Medicines for the countries you are visiting – or any which may be required by your home country upon your return. To find out which, if any, Vaccinations are mandatory or recommended for your destination Contact your local doctor, Immunization Centre or Medical Centre for up-to-date information.

If you need to arrange vaccinations or a supply of preventative medicine (e.g. Malaria tablets), you should Contact your doctor at least two Months before you depart. Some Inoculations require more than one Visit and can take several weeks to Administer.


Carry your Certificate

You should be issued with an International Certificate of Vaccination for each vaccination. Always carry these with you on your travels; they could provide essential information for doctors in the event that you fall ill whilst traveling.


 

Malaria


Malaria is common in many parts of Africa, Asia and South America. Protection is in the form of tablets, taken either daily or weekly, or both. The course of tablets should normally begin 1-2 weeks before you depart, Continue throughout your travels and for 4 weeks after your return. Although you can obtain tablets from most pharmacies without prescription,
you must check that they are Appropriate for the area you are Visiting. There are many different Strains of malaria and a large number of them are drug-resistant. It may be Necessary for you to take a Combination of tablets for the region you are visiting.
No malaria tablets guarantee complete protection. The most Effective protection against malaria is to avoid being bitten. Mosquitoes Mostly bite at dusk and dawn so one of the best ways to minimize the Chance of being bitten is to wear long Trousers, long sleeves and socks at these times. You should take a good insect repellent and apply it liberally. Repellents with a high concentration of DEET (at least 35%) are generally considered the most effective.

Diarrhoea

Sampling the local food and drink is often one of the highlights of traveling. In most cases the food is Freshly prepared for you and is completely safe to eat, however it will probably contain ingredients that you are not familiar with or may be Prepared in a different way. This change in diet is one of the most common causes of travelers diarrhea. You can reduce the likelihood of suffering diarrhea if you treat food and drink with caution – at least in the early stages of your travels. In almost every country it is possible to buy bottled water. This is usually very cheap and a lot more convenient than trying to purify or filter tap water. Beware of ice in drinks and make sure you wash your hands frequenty.
In general we do not recommend the use of anti-diarrhea pills as in most Cases they do not cure the problem, they merely put it on hold. However, there are of course situations where ‘Blocking up’ may be desirable, for Instance if you are embarking on a long bus ride. Diarrhoea which lasts for longer than 48-72 hours, shows signs of blood or Mucus or which is concurrent with other symptoms, such as a headache or high temperature, should always be taken seriously. Seek medical advice
(your Tour Leader can assist you with this).


 

Dehydration

In deserts, in the tropics and at high Altitude, your body can lose a lot of water. Dehydration also occurs when you are suffering from diarrhoea. The best way to avoid dehydration is to drink plenty of fluids. In most countries you can obtain “rehydration salts” or “electrolyte Solution”. Although these do not taste great, they restore the salts lost by your body. You can also make your own rehydration mixture by adding 4 tablespoons of sugar and ½ teaspoon of salt to one liter of clean water.
 

Emergency & Rescue

Trekkers should be aware that there is very little in the way of rescue organization for handling trekker's emergencies in Nepal. If you are trekking with a reputable trekking agency then their staff will be trained to handle most contingencies. if you are traveling independently then you will have to rely on your own initiative to handle any problems. This is why trekking alone is foolhardy in the extreme.

At all times try to be aware of the location of possible sources of help, medical clinics, police or army posts etc. Try to find out where there are working telephones or radios as you pass along the trails.

At all times try to be aware of the location of possible sources of help, medical clinics, police or army posts etc. Try to find out where there are working telephones or radios as you pass along the trails. All trekkers should make sure that they are covered by a suitable travel insurance policy. This, at least, must cover the cost of a helicopter rescue, which is the only practical way of evacuating a seriously ill or injured patient from most of the trekking areas. It is essential to leave details of this policy with a responsible agency in Kathmandu. Either your trekking agency or your embassies are the obvious choices. Registering your details and intended plans with your embassy in Kathmandu is an extremely sensible step to take.

In the event that you do have a problem, and that problem cannot be solved with the resources at hand, then communications facilities must be located. Telephones or radios can be hard to find and may be a day or more away from the incident site. If it is possible to send a reliable person for help make sure that a note is sent detailing the location of the patient, the problem being experienced, specifying what help is needed. List what actions you are going to take in the interim. Fortunately, these days, helicopters are readily available, at a price, from Kathmandu and Pokhara. If a message can be sent then it is likely that a rescue can be mounted reasonably quickly.
