Booking Condition

1. Booking

To make a booking you must be over 18 and we require a completed booking form and the applicable deposit, as stated on the booking form. Deposits (20%) are non-refundable. The person making the booking accepts these booking conditions on behalf of everyone in their party. If we accept your booking, we will issue a confirmation invoice. A contract will exist between us from the date we issue the confirmation invoice.

If you had not seen these booking conditions when you made your booking then your booking will be cancelled and your monies will be refunded if you have paid more than deposit (20%) amount required. This ‘cooling off’ period does not apply if booking within 60 days. You must provide a signed booking form or fill in the online booking form immediately.
Important note: There would be standard bank charge to send you back money and it also varies on exchange rate, you may not receive exact amount of you paid to us.

 2. Payment

When you receive the confirmation invoice please check the details carefully and inform us immediately if anything is incorrect. Spelling of names etc is particularly important. Names on travel documents must exactly match those shown in passports - we cannot accept responsibility if an airline permits or other supplier refuses boarding because the name(s) shown in your passport differ from those on your ticket. Payment for all monies due, including any surcharge, must be paid to us no later than 60days (please contact us if this will cause you a problem, we do try to be flexible) of your arrival in Nepal.
If you do not pay the balance by the due date you may not able to join any tours and booking will be cancelled automatically and you will forfeit your deposit. Travel documents/permit will not be issued unless final payment has been received unless our staff agreed in advance. Your travel documents/permits will be available for collection at our offices in Nepal.


3. Passports and visas

Whilst we are able to provide basic advice to clients regarding passports and visa requirements, you should check with the appropriate Embassy, Consulate or related Foreign Office for the exact requirements for your chosen tour and date of travel. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct passport and visas to gain access to any country/region included in the travel arrangements which you purchase from us. If you fail to do so, we have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer, nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. In some cases, countries will refuse entry to clients who have criminal records. Should you be concerned about this, please check with the embassy or consulate of the countries to which you are travelling.

4. If you cancel your trip

You or any member of your party may cancel your tour at any time providing that the cancellation is made by the lead name in writing. As this incurs costs, we will retain your deposit and in addition will apply other cancellation charges as shown below:

Period before departure within which written cancellation is received from U

Additionally, you will remain responsible for the full amount of your insurance premium and this will not be refunded in the event of your cancellation. You may however be able to transfer this cover to another holiday. Some airline carriers do not refund any percent of air ticket money once you made trip cancellation. It depends on ticket types and it will be certain percentage refund or non refundable, it would mention on your booking once you made.

In the unlikely event of our insolvency, the Nepal government will arrange to refund any money you have paid us for an advance booking as we have paid tour protection deposited to get license from ministry of tourism and civil aviation.


6. The adventure challenge 

Before booking with us, take a moment to consider the challenging nature of adventure travel. Trips of this kind often require a substantial amount of flexibility from you during the journey. The itineraries outlined in the brochure and on our website must be seen as an indication of our intention, rather than a contractual obligation on our part. Unforeseen local conditions or events may sometimes necessitate changes to the itinerary, accommodation or means of transport. We accept your booking on the understanding that you realize the potential hazards involved in this kind of trip, including injury, disease or loss/damage to personal property, inconvenience and discomfort. Refunds will not be given for unused services. For your protection you must have travel insurance to travel with us. We will require proof that you are insured before start trip.

7. Changes to your trip

Before you enter into a contract with us, we reserve the right to change any of the facilities, services or prices described in our brochures or website. If a change occurs you will be advised at the time of booking.

8. If we change your booking

It is unlikely we will have to make any changes to your tour after you book. However, we plan the arrangements many months in advance and may occasionally have to make changes. Most changes are minor. If a major change becomes necessary, we will advise you of the change as soon as possible. Whether a change is ‘major’ depends on the nature of the tour.
Important notes: Compensation will not be payable if we are forced to cancel, or in any way change your tour for reasons of consolidation or force majeure, namely war, threat of war, riot, civil strife, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, health epidemics, natural or nuclear disaster, fire or adverse weather conditions or other similar events beyond our control and that of our suppliers.


9. If we cancel your holiday

Sometimes it may be necessary to cancel your tour and we reserve the right to cancel your tour in any circumstances. However, in no circumstances will we cancel your tour less than 6 weeks before the scheduled departure date except for reasons of force majeure or failure on your part to pay the final balance. In circumstances where we are unable to provide the tour booked, we will return to you all monies paid, including insurance when you have bought that from insurance company, or where possible offer an alternative tour of comparable or higher standard and compensation if appropriate. In case of a cancelled tour departure we strongly advise you not to book any connecting travel that is non-refundable or non-changeable or incurs penalties. We will not be liable to refund any incidental costs incurred for visas, vaccinations or other travel arrangements. If we are forced to cancel your holiday after departure we will, wherever possible, make suitable alternative arrangements. If we are unable to make such alternative arrangements, or you reject these for good reason then we will return you to your point of departure and refund you for any unused services, if appropriate.

10. Data Protection Policy

To ensure that your holiday runs smoothly, we need to use information such as your name and address, special needs, dietary requirements, etc. We will apply appropriate security measures to protect this data. However, we must pass it to suppliers of your travel arrangements, including airlines, hotels and transport companies. We will only pass data, including sensitive information regarding disabilities or dietary and religious requirements, to people responsible for your travel arrangements. When you make this booking, you consent to this information being passed to the relevant people. Information held by a travel agent is subject to that company’s own data protection policy. We can supply a copy of your information held by us.

Please note that the timings of air, road or rail departures are estimates only. These timings may be affected by operational difficulties, weather conditions or failure of passengers to check in on time. Carriers’ conditions of carriage which will apply to you have clauses which limit or exclude liability. We do not make any arrangements if there is a delay at the outbound or inbound point of departure. However, most airlines usually make provision in this case.


12. Travel Insurance



Travel insurance is mandatory for all clients while on one of our tours. If you choose not to take the insurance scheme we offer, you are responsible for ensuring that you are in possession of travel insurance for the entire duration of the tour in respect of at least medical expenses, injury, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment, with cover/benefits equal to/greater than the insurance we offer. If you make your own insurance arrangements you must ensure that there are no exclusion clauses which limit cover for the type of activities included in your tour.

Any alteration, whether a change to an existing booking or a change to another tour or departure dates, will be subject to payment by you of any costs imposed by any of our suppliers providing the component parts of the tour. Any alteration by you within 60 days of departure will be treated as a cancellation of the original booking and will be subject to the cancellation charges set out in Clause 4 below.

d) payment by you of an administrative charge of a minimum of US50$ per person and all costs which those supplying your travel arrangements impose.

We are able to advice on mandatory health requirements; however, we are not medical experts. It is your responsibility to ensure that you obtain proper and detailed medical advice. Where you do not do so and either are not allowed to enter any country, or suffer personal injury or death, we have no liability to you for any cost, loss or damage which you suffer nor will we refund you the cost of any unused portion of your travel arrangements. Clients with existing medical problems, pregnant women and anyone who has recently visited other countries should check requirements with their general practitioner.
