High altitude trek precautions

By -
If I may add to the experience of the offr who has written a first hand account.
I would put the physical fit requirement of trekkers as follows:-
1. Should not be carrying extra body wt ie should be slim.
2. ⁠More important than the physical str, the trekker should have strong lungs ie good lung capacity. 
3. ⁠To be able to walk with a rhythm which is synchronized with your breathing. Never let yourself to break into panting.
5. Eat light food preferably dal bhaat & avoid non veg.
6. ⁠Never over or under clad yourself. There is very fine balance which comes from experience or talking to others who have trekked in high altitude.
