What are the requirements to undertake/participate in a Himalayan Trek

Minimum Age: 12 years 
Experience in trekking: Useful but not mandatory

Fitness required:

You need to be in good physical condition before the start of the trek. If you haven’t exercised in a long time and have gotten out of shape, mild interval training is a good way to rebuild endurance and cardiovascular fitness. Let’s say your exercise of choice is running. Maybe you can only manage to run a few minutes before your heart feels like it’s about to explode out of your chest and you’re forced to stop for fear of passing out. It’s going to take you a while to build up to 30 minutes if you simply run your maximum each day and then stop. You should be able to Jog about 5 kms in 30 minutes before commencement of the trekking expedition every day.
