It's important to match your fitness level. Find what you think will suit you best in the tables below:
Easy trekking by Himalayan standards is generally up to 2800m. There are plenty of ups and downs on well-maintained trails. This type of trip is best suited for those who lead a reasonably active life. The trek takes about 3 to 7 days, walking about 4 to 5 hours a day.
this involves longer treks (eight to fifteen days) on maintained trails. This type of trek includes day excursions to higher elevations, for which it's advisable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these treks, we generally achieve an altitude between 1100 m to 3200 m.
these treks must be fully supported. We climb to altitudes between 3200 and 5000m. and there are overnight stays at altitudes above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit and enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas.
this trek is best described as Alpine, and suitable is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack, when required. The trek covers very remote areas, traveling over snow-covered passes at altitudes of up to 6500m. You will need to axes and crampons. No strenuous trek should be undertaken without medical clearance.

I was glad about to show my children the Namun La pass and Annapurna circuit. It was amazing to go with them and show there the rhododendron forests and feel the mountains again. I liked to see Dhan again. He is a wonderful guide and he has a nice family. The lunch at his home was really good. All this make to happen by Nepal alternative treks so I want to use this office again for next time.
Really good trek with Dhan and Dal ; We met a lots of people from all over the world. We saw the life in mountains and it was amazing. I tekked through Namun La pass and enjoyed the thorong la pass by horse. It was really nice and helpful. I will do the trek again to go over the pass. The services we got from this company is appreciated. We never forget !
