Liabilities and responsibilities

Meeting another culture requires tolerance and the ability to adapt. It is in the nature of all the programs that arrangements and participants have to be flexible. The day to day agenda and an ultimate goal of a trip are taken as aims and not as contractual obligations. The agency will always try its very best to solve any problems you face during your trip, but cannot be held responsible for delays or alterations in the program or for expenses incurred, owing to domestic flights delays or cancellation, strikes, local regulations, sickness, bad weather, war, major force, political closures and disputes…

Travel insurance

A travel insurance policy is vital if you go on an adventure tour in a foreign country. While most general travel insurances cover you against sickness, not all cover you for emergency evacuation, which could run into many thousands of dollars if a helicopter is required. We do not offer travel insurance policies, however, we strongly recommend that you apply for one covering mountain rescue and emergency evacuation. We advise you to have travel insurance as it is compulsory for circuits and for many treks in Nepal.

Flights

We do not sell international flight tickets. We do arrange any domestic flights, however, as they are included in the price of your journey. We will require all information necessary to book your domestic flight upon receipt of your booking.
