**Given:**

Speed of hours in descends = 60% faster than climbing a mountain

**Formula used:**

S = D/T (Where, D = Distance, S = Speed, and T = Time)

**Calculation:**

Let be assume climbing speed and descends speed of horse is X and Y respectively

⇒ Y = 180/(180/60) = 180/3 = 60 km/h

⇒ X × (160/100) = Y

⇒ X × (160/100) = 60

⇒ X = (60 × 100)/160 = 6000/160 = 37.5 km/h

**∴ The required result will be 37.5 km/h.**
