You do not need to be super-fit; you need to be fit enough to comfortably walk for 5-6 hours per day in the mountains on reasonable trails (Depends on grade of treks). This would definitely entail walking for around an hour at least every day to get fit. If you can spend some time in the gym or do some walks before the trip it would help. We also give our guest a pre fitness program on request.
Groups range in size from 2 up to 12, and typically comprise a range of nationalities and experience. All of our groups have got along very well. One of the attractions of such a trip is the chance to meet people with different backgrounds and personalities.
Usually our guest simply brings their existing clothing and equipment and if necessary supplement this with some extra items purchased easily in Delhi/Rishikesh/Manali/Leh.
Normally single trekkers have no problems fitting in with a group. Normally single trekkers share rooms or lodges with other trekkers of the same sex, but if we have an odd-number we ensure that a room or lodge is organized accordingly. Please tell us in advance.
The difficulty of our treks depends on where you want to trek and how long you want to go. The shorter Treks tend to be easier while the longer ones require some physical fitness.

We have friendly and dependable Guides/porters to assist you with your personal gear so you just carry a day pack.
