There are eighteen minor peaks or trekking peaks open for adventurous trekkers who want to enter the world of alpine climbing. In most cases these minor Himalayan peaks range from 6000m-6500m and require climbing on snow and ice. For most trekking peaks you don’t need any previous experience but you should be physically and mentally prepared for the expedition.
Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has formulated few rules and regulations to regulate peak climbing in the Himalayan region. You can get the detailed information from NMA. http://www.nepalmountaineering.org/
One of NMA rules is quoted as follows:
Every individual or party granted a climbing permit shall be accompanied by a Sirdar/Guide, who must be registered with NMA.
