Trek Grading System

Trekkers making their way uphillWe offer a wide range of treks which vary considerably in difficulty. Most treks begin at altitudes in excess of 1,000 metres where the air is thinner than you may be accustomed, footpaths can be slippery and slopes steep.  

To help you identify an appropriate difficulty of walk, we have graded all our treks to act as a guideline to suitability - we ask clients to identify thegrade of trek that is appropriate for them.
