* The scores are out of 10. To get 10 in scenery it really has to be once in a lifetime, mind-blowing trek! Even such superb treks as Milford and Tongariro Crossing in New Zealand, Torres del Paine in Chile, and Everest base camp in Nepal got only 9.5.
** As for the difficulty grade: for example climbing Kilimanjaro is 9. The grade of 3 and below is suitable for children.
