Nepal, being a mountainous country, is more appropriate to think in terms of hour(s) spent walking, rather than the miles covered; this is what we use in our grading system. A typical day’s walk lasts from five to seven hours and involves a number of ascents and descents.

Usually 3 to 5 hrs walking each day with an elevation below 3500m and the occasional steep path.

Relatively low altitude treks, crossing passes below 4500m, and 4 to 6 hrs walking each day.

Up to 12 to 15 days continuous walking through wild country, including high passes
(sometimes snow- covered) between 4500m to 5500m sometimes 7 or 8 hrs walking each day.

Most Challenging:
Long distance treks for the fit trekking enthusiasts, more than 8 to 9 hrs continuous walking (but all treks have rest days en-route). Each trek crosses at least one pass of over 5500m. The remote area treks often include very rarely visited areas.
