EASY
Previous trekking experience is not required, but it is beneficial if you have completed a few day hikes. The terrain is fairly straightforward, with basic ascents and descents and a moderate trail. There is no high-altitude climb involved, but good physical fitness is required. Climbers must be able to walk on mixed terrain with gradual ups and downs.

MODERATE
Previous hiking experience is required. Climbers should be in good physical shape. You’ll be climbing short steep sections as well as mixed terrain. The altitude will gradually rise, and the trail will become rougher but not difficult. Though there will be no significant height gain or altitude push, climbers will see themselves crossing the regular altitude mark when compared to easy treks.

DIFFICULT
Climbers must be physically fit and in good health. You will trek through steep terrain with short scrambling and descent on moraine or scree. Previous trekking experience is required. Physically strenuous and climbers should be able to adapt to high altitude conditions.
