I thoroughly enjoyed the Annapurna Luxury Lodges trek: the walking routes, the guide and porters and the hospitality in the lodges were all excellent

Trip Grade Strenuous

Trip Grade Strenuous

Suitability: a good choice for regular long distance hill walkers, very high level of fitness required. These trips may involve mountaineering and glacial travel.

1) Walking times: average 7 to 8 hours walking per day (with several longer days up to 12 hours) for up to 28 days with some rest days included.

2) Altitude: up to 5,500m.

3) Terrain: for some of the time following well-travelled trails although also likely to encounter rough and rocky conditions possibly with exposed sections. May involve steep ascent and descent over mountain passes that could be snow covered.

4) Remoteness: usually in more remote areas and likely to be a long distance from nearest road and facilities available in a city.
