Very Strenuous Trekking covers 4000 meters to 6000 meters. No doubt, your physical fitness, and acclimatization are the must. Generally, you walk about 7 hrs every day, but the altitude becomes an obstacle and it is really tough to walk that much. You have to cross the Himalayan passes using basic climbing equipment. Even the trail is steep and may be slippery.
