Easy Grades
Short and easy hiking or walking daytrips falls under this easy grade. Easy grade trekking doesn\'t require special experience and training. However, good physical condition, walking enjoyable mind and desire to explore the local culture is essential. Easy grade trekking is not more than a week long and usually suitable for all aged group people. Trekking in lower elevation and panoramic views of mountains from the view points of lower elevation is falls under this grade.  Normally, the elevation of the trail will be between 800m/2624ft and 2800m/ 9240ft above sea level.

Moderate Grades
Trekking which demands physically strong and little more challenging then easy grade fall under this moderate grade. The trekking routes are longer and shorter but normally range to 10 to 15 days. Trekking very near by the mountains provides closer views of snow capped peaks are listed under this grade. Trekking starts from low terrain to hiking elevations may cause Altitude sickness problem. Although the walking trip is not so difficult but previous trekking experience is useful. There may be up to 6 hours a day on the trail and the elevation rises and falls from 800m/ 2624ft to 4000m/13210ft above sea level. So, physical fitness is compulsory to avoid the Altitude sickness.

Strenuous Grades
Since the terrain can be hard and the days long, hikers on these treks should be in good physical condition and have some previous mountain walking experience. Steep climbing may be involved, although it is never necessary to use ropes. Treks at this level can he arranged for periods of 16 to 21 days. Typically, a gradual ascent through a green river valley will lead you up to a number of high passes, where you will reach the altitude of 5600m/18480ft.

Challenging Grades
Challenging grade trek demands excellent physical condition and previous mountaineering experience is preferable. These real adventure treks or peak climbing is both technical and highly strenuous. The trip offers steep ascents to high altitude such as peak climbing. Stamina is needed to complete one of these treks, as it can take from 20 to 30 days to reach the heart of the wildernesses that them transverse. Participants should except to trek above 5600m/18480ft to 6476m/21247ft. Trekking peak climbing, high passes crossing trips falls under this challenging grade. We recommend previous trekking experience, preferably at altitude; you need complete confidence in your physical condition and the ability to trek for many days over difficult terrain.

Expedition Grades
Grades are an indication of the difficulty of a climb. However, it’s important to note that grades are simply an opinion and not a science generally assigned by the mountaineers who have already completed the ascent to the particular mountain. We are providing here some explanations on our grading system which give an overall view of the trip taking into account such mountain climbing factors as the technical difficulty of the ascent and also such factors as overall steepness, exposure and objective dangers. Please note that our grades give you a general indication or idea about the trip and comparison of difficulty between the expeditions only, the actual climbing largely depends upon the fitness, experience, and skill level of the individual climber.

Fitness:
A. Good basic fitness.
B. Good cardio-vascular fitness that would normally require some training, by running, cycling or gym work.
C. Training would tend to become essential to attain a good level of fitness. Previous experience of multi-day walking is recommended.
D. A high level of all round fitness will be required to cope with the exceptionally strenuous nature of these expeditions. A resistance to extreme weather conditions over extended periods of time. Heavy loads over multiple days may need to be carried.

Expedition Fitness
In all cases your chance of success and level of enjoyment will depend very much on your level of fitness. The grading system set out above gives you an indication of the level required for each expedition.

Technical Difficulty (could include):
1. Easy scrambling, broad scree or low angled snow ridges at angles up to 30 degrees. Ropes are not usually required. Previous climbing experience is not essential.
2. Snow and ice sections at a low angle of up to 35 degrees; winter walking experience useful but not essential.
3. Snow and ice sections at an angle of 35-45 degrees. Previous experience of using ice axe and crampons is essential. (Alpine PD/AD Scottish Grade 1/2 Rock D)
4. Snow and ice sections at angles over 45 degrees with steep steps. Rock sections up to VD. Confident mountaineering skills including some rock and ice climbing experience. Previous Alpine climbing or high altitude experience is normally required unless technically very confident beyond the grades below. (Alpine AD Scottish Grade 2/3 Rock VD-S)
5. Sections of very steep snow and ice at angles over 50 degrees. Rock sections up to Severe. Suitable only for experienced mountaineers who can be self-sufficient, previous alpine experience is essential. (Alpine D Scottish Grade 3 Rock S-VS)
6. Very steep snow and ice with sustained steep ice pitches, Rock sections up to HVS. Previous experience of high altitude Mountaineering is essential. (Alpine TD Scottish Grade 3-4 Rock VS - HVS).
            
Fitness Level
Although the climbing expeditions do not require you to be an athlete, you must be fit and healthy before embarking on the expedition. To roughly assess your fitness level, see that you walk can easily walk about 8 km gaining a height of 600m/2,000ft with a 10kg rucksack in about 2-1/2 hrs or less. Note that you should be able to follow the regime for several consecutive days.

SAFETY WARNING
Mountaineering and Trekking can be dangerous and carry an inherent risk of injury or death, which cannot be eliminated. You must accept that, although we do our utmost to reduce risk, there always remains a chance of accidents happening. Our leaders will continually make decisions about prevailing snow conditions, the weather and the ability of individuals and the group with safety in mind. They will make professional judgments to minimize the risk of objective dangers such as avalanche, ice-fall or stone-fall and weather, but these risks cannot always be predicted nor removed whilst in the mountains. All mountaineering and trekking at high altitude involves risks of altitude illness. Whilst our expeditions and treks have an appropriate acclimatisation period this cannot entirely remove the dangers of altitude as individuals acclimatize at different rates and the symptoms can be unpredictable. Severe cases necessitate descent and, in extreme cases death can occur.
