Trek Himalaya organizes treks and tours to remote areas of Himalaya untouched by modern civilization. Trekking provides the exhilaration of traveling up and down-hills on foot, without the burden of carrying extensive equipment and provisions. The support team consists of a core group of trek leader and assistants, a cook and helper, along with a number of porters according to the size of the group. All the basic, except personal, gear is provided: group camping equipment such as good sized tents, delicious high quality food, and expert leadership of the locals. A high standard of safety and health is naturally followed.
A typical day involves an average of five to six hours of walking, depending on the terrain. Some hiking and camping experience would be helpful, including a moderate level of fitness. All that is needed is the love for the outdoors and for the culture of this beautiful mysterious land.

Trek Himalaya offer a wide range of treks and tours of various interests and can design customized itinerary as per your need, time and budget.


Your fitness and Trekking Grade

Trekking in the Himalayas of India and Nepal requires good health and reasonable physical fitness. Physical capabilities can be enhanced by pre–trek training; hill–walking or stair climbing, jogging 3 miles or cycling 5x a week (minimum). Be sure to work up to your training, especially if it is not already a part of your weekly routine. It is essential to choose a trek that is well within your capabilities.

Grade 1 involves trekking to altitudes of about 3,000m/10,000ft or less, it is relatively easy walking up to 5 hrs/15km per day, with the occasional longer walk. These treks can be enjoyed by anyone who leads a reasonably active life.

Grade 2 involves some longer walks, and easy to moderate trekking to altitudes between 2,000m/6,500ft and 3,500m/11,500ft for up to 6 hrs/20km a day. Some previous hill-walking experience is desirable. Grade 2 may best be described as mild to moderate.

Grade 3 involves moderate trekking to altitudes of 3,000m/10,000ft to 4,000m/13,000ft for up to 8 hrs/25km per day, sometimes including excursions or pass crossings up to 5,000m/16,500ft.
Some pre-trek training is advisable. Hill walking experience, a reasonably fit body and good stamina are essential for these kinds of treks, which are generally longer (minimum 2/3 weeks) and more strenuous (long ascents/descents, steep gradients, rough ground).

Grade 4 involves strenuous trekking to altitudes predominantly above 4,000m/13,000ft with excursions and pass crossings of between 5,000m/16,500ft and 6,000m/19,200ft. Pre-trek training
is essential.
You need to be very fit for these treks, capable of carrying a backpack, possess a fair degree of stamina and familiar with mountain walking. We include treks which involve river, moraine, glacier and snow crossing in this category.

Grade 5 requires a high level of fitness and experience walking on scree, snow, ice and packed snow. There will be ice axes, crampons, and in some cases, ropes used. Climbs however are non-technical. The altitude would be predominantly above 4,000m/13,000ft with quite a few nights above 5,000m/16,000ft.
Some climbing experience and elementary knowledge of the use of crampons and ice axe are essential.
