Diamox will not be needed since the highest altitude you will reach on the excursion is approximately 13500 feet. However, if you have had trouble adjusting to such elevations in the past, you should consult a doctor first.
If it starts raining slowly while trekking then we will continue our trek as per the plan. Your poncho will keep you dry. In case if it is raining heavily then we will try to find any shelter and wait for the rain to stop or slow. If it rains at the campsite then there would not be any problem because all our living tents, kitchen tents and toilet tents are waterproof. You will stay dry inside.
It depends on the difficulty level of the trek. The minimum age for eligibility is 14 years.
Well, it totally depends on person to person. Usually, there are no side effects of Diamox but if you are having any prior medical conditions then it is better to consult your doctor.

Himalayan water is considered the purest water and safe to drink. But for safety purposes, we sometimes boil the water and then use it for drinking and cooking.
