I would like to say that I was thoroughly impressed with your operations in Nepal. Everything ran wonderfully smoothly. Ramesh, our leader, was particulary brilliant. He was unimposing and unobtrusive, but knew everything that was going on: from what each of ate each morning to how we all were coping with the trek. When I retun to the Himalaya I will not hesitate in travelling with World Expeditions and I will hope to travel with Ramesh again.
Technical Grading Definitions
The conditions are relatively straightforward and not technically difficult. Expect generally low angled slopes with no prolonged steep or exposed sections and glacier travel where participants are roped together. Abseiling may be required in short sections.
The conditions are variable with generally low angled slopes with some sections of moderately steep snow or easy rock where ropes are required . Some basic rock climbing and abseiling involved.
The conditions are challenging involving steep and exposed snow snow and ice slopes with sections of rock climbing. Some sections involve abseiling and belaying.
A more series and technical undertaking involving long and exposed climbing on snow, rock and ice. Competent rope work, efficiency of movement and good technical skills are required.
