  1. Ivan, Do we need to be a professional mountain climber or have prior mountain climbing experience to join this trek?

  2. I'm not a professional mountain climber myself. And I wasn't as fit I was supposed to be. But that was me. And it's not good. It would be good though to have prior experience but not really a requirement. But it's important to be physically fit.
