(Prior to arrival) which is non- refundable under any circumstance, though provisions may be made. The remaining 70% charge will be paid on arrival in Kathmandu before departure for your chosen journey. In case you are booking from within Nepal the full payment may be given when agreement has been made at company HQ. We reserve the right to cancel your trip provided the full amount is not paid on time.

Having paid full amount of any trip, you are entitled to a partial refund in case of cancellation. The cancellation charge is 50% of the full amount you paid.

Prices are liable to fluctuate due to external factors that are completely out of our control; for instance changes in exchange rate and government actions. We do everything in our power to keep prices at the current rate.

Flights and Unforeseen Conditions

It is important to consider that domestic flights can be subject to disruption. Due to bad weather, flights can sometimes be delayed or even cancelled. Although such disruption is rare, we should be prepared for every eventuality, any time of the year, even in the peak trekking season. In case of flight cancellation, it is therefore advised to bring extra money to cover costs of additional nights, as this expense will not be included in your package. If you have to stay in Kathmandu or any other places longer than planned, you need to bear the cost yourself. For those travelers on a schedule that cannot be compromised, in case of flight disruption which is very rare, we can arrange an alternative trek to suit personal needs and time constraints.
