Grades of Difficulty
 
 

Grades of Difficulty

 

Grade 1 – Easy

These trips can be enjoyed by anyone who leads a reasonably active life. Experience is not necessary at this level. Please note, however, walking always involves some exertion.
Trails in Ladakh are seldom flat, and you must still expect to have a reasonable amount of ascent and descent.


Duration per day : 3 - 5 hrs
Altitude : 3000 - 4000 meters
 

Grade 2 – Moderate

You need to be in good health and reasonably fir, and taking regular exercise. These trips are a mixture of some longer and shorter walks.

Duration per day : 4 - 6 hrs
Altitude : 3000 - 4000 meters with some high altitude climb, which require a higher lever of stamina than Grade 1 trips.
 

Grade 3 – Strenous

For any trek at this level, a high level of physical fitness is required. Previous trekking
experience, although desirable, is not essential, if you are confident of your physical condition.


Duration per day : 5 - 8 hrs
Altitude : 4000 - 5000 meters
 

Grade 4 – Tough

You would require previous experience of trekking, preferably at altitude and some degree of mountaineering skills. You also need complete confidence in your physical
condition and have the ability to trek for many days without a break and be able to cope with difficult terrain and difficult paths of steep mountain sides. Extremes of altitude and weather may also be encountered, and on some treks, it may be necessary to use ice axe and crampons. Stamina is very important as walking days are long.


Duration per day : 6 – 9 hours
Altitude : 5000 meters
