Trekking grades serve as a comprehensive measure of difficulty, encompassing factors such as terrain, altitude, and potential hazards. Globally, treks are categorized into five distinct grades, each delineated by its unique challenges. Grade 1 represents the least demanding treks, suitable for beginners, with well-defined paths and minimal elevation gain. As the complexity ascends to Grade 5, treks become increasingly arduous, involving steep ascents, high altitudes, and hazardous sections. Seasoned adventurers may gravitate towards Grade 5, seeking the ultimate challenge.
