Easy Grade Trek
Trekkers with no previous experience, we offer a diverse range of easy treks. By easy, we mean that trek involves no difficult climbing or ascents to high altitudes, takes usually no more that a week and is suitable for anyone. However, you should not think that loss of height means loss of interest; while our more challenging treks get you closer to a small number of mountain ranges; lower altitude treks often provide colorful horizons of a whole series of ranges. High or low, mountain villages reachable only by several days walk from the road brim with character. The tea-house along these routes offers hot water and Western-style food. Of course, theses treks are not popular without reason and you will find the terrain and views superb.
The Ghorepani and Jomsom treks follow well-trodden trails. If the idea of tea-house trekking appeals to you, but you would prefer to escape from the crowds, then the Helambu trek could be your ideal choice. You trek up to within sight of enormous snowy mountains, and then wind at a leisurely pace through a spectacular green valley. The tea-house is simpler here, but you will benefit from the peace of the unspoilt villages and the friendly welcome of your hosts.
To really get away from it all, try the Shivapuri trek, Siklis trek or the Royal Trek. Whilst you will still pass through many remote villages, these regions are so unspoilt as to have no tea-houses, and you will need to camp. Again, the range of mountains you can view on these treks is superb.
These easy treks are suitable for children or weary trekkers, as it doesn’t entail any particularly long walking days and there is always plenty to see and the trek evolves no difficult climbing or ascents to high altitudes.
