Trip Grading

This grading system of trips applies specifically to Himalayan trips Icicles Adventure organizes and is relative to trips listed on We have classified our Himalayan treks, tours, and peak climbing trips based on their expected level of difficulty depending on altitude, terrain, daily walking time on the hike, remoteness as well as the length of the trip. In the Himalayas, trek distance is generally measured by the length of time it takes rather than mileage or kilometers, as the altitude and terrain are more significant than the actual distance of a journey. Please be aware that the altitude and daily walking figures are provided as a guide only. Detailed walking time and daily statistics for each trek can be attained in each of the detailed day-to-day itineraries.

Fitness Required
To participate in most of our trips, a good level of overall fitness and health is required, but you do not need to be an athlete. For example, in most of our treks (not city tours), you should be able to walk 8 km/5 miles with a height gain of 600m/2,000ft with an 8-10kg rucksack in 2-3 hours. The more difficult or strenuous the trip is, you should be able to do better than this and be able to repeat it over several consecutive days.

Please choose the appropriate trip for you after reading the detailed day-to-day program and the trip grading
