Trekking and Tour Activities
Safety and Responsibility:
Our trekking and tour activities involve certain risks and challenges, including altitude sickness, physical exertion, and environmental hazards. You are responsible for assessing your own health and fitness, following our safety guidelines and instructions, and taking appropriate measures to protect yourself and others. We reserve the right to refuse participation or terminate your activity if we deem it unsafe or disruptive to the group.
Environmental and Cultural Conservation:
We are committed to promoting sustainable tourism practices and respecting local cultures and customs. You must adhere to our environmental and cultural guidelines, including proper waste disposal, conservation of natural resources, and respectful behavior towards locals and their traditions. We reserve the right to remove you from the activity if you violate these guidelines.
Liability and Indemnification:
You acknowledge that trekking and tour activities carry inherent risks and that we cannot guarantee your safety or prevent all accidents or incidents. You, therefore, assume full responsibility for your own safety and waive any claims against us, our guides, or our partners for any personal injury, property damage, or loss incurred during the activity. You also agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from any claims, damages, or expenses arising from your breach of these Terms or any third-party rights.
Passport and Visa
To travel with our company, it is essential that your passport is valid and has at least six months of validity remaining from the date you book your trip. If you need to obtain a Nepalese visa, you can visit the Nepalese embassy or consulate in your home country.
Some nationalities may be eligible for a Nepalese visa upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu or other entry points in Nepal. We advise you to check whether this option is available for citizens of your country. It is the traveler's responsibility to obtain a valid visa.
When you book a trip with us, we require your accurate and valid passport information to make necessary bookings, such as permits and tickets, on your behalf. Providing us with correct information will help to streamline the process of obtaining government approvals.
If you submit incorrect or inaccurate information, we may not be able to make pre-bookings on your behalf, and we cannot be held responsible for any issues that may arise as a result. Therefore, we strongly advise you to double-check all information you provide to us to avoid any unnecessary complications during your trip.
Health & Fitness Requirement
Our outdoor activities in Nepal, such as hiking, trekking, climbing, rafting, and kayaking, require a reasonable level of physical and mental fitness. To ensure your safety and enjoyment, we encourage you to carefully read the trip itinerary and assess your ability to participate in each activity. We also recommend that you consult with your doctor before booking a trip to assess any potential medical issues that may affect your participation.
Our team of experienced guides will assess your fitness and health before the start of the trip to ensure that you are prepared for the activities. If we believe that your fitness or health is not sufficient to participate in the trip, we reserve the right to refuse your booking.
We want to provide an inclusive and safe environment for all of our guests. If you have any medical conditions or special needs that may require additional support, please let us know before booking the trip. We will do our best to accommodate your needs and suggest alternative activities if necessary.
Please note that our outdoor activities take place in remote regions with limited modern infrastructure and services. In the event of a serious medical emergency, we may need to arrange for air evacuation as a last resort.
For this reason, we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance that covers airlift and medical expenses. Travel insurance is not included in the cost of the trip, and the Company will not be responsible for providing it.
Participation in any of our adventure trips requires that you have valid travel insurance that covers any accidents, injuries, or illnesses that may occur during the trip. This insurance should also cover emergency evacuation, medical expenses, and repatriation.
If you do not have a travel insurance policy, we strongly advise you to obtain one before embarking on your journey. We can recommend reputable insurance providers and will be happy to help you select the most appropriate policy for your needs.
Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that your insurance policy covers all of the activities included in your trip. If you engage in any activities that are not covered by your policy, you will be liable for any associated costs.
In addition, we strongly recommend that you take out insurance that covers any loss or damage to personal property, including equipment, as well as any trip cancellation or interruption. This will provide you with added peace of mind and protection in the event that unforeseen circumstances prevent you from completing your trip.
Please review your travel insurance policy carefully before departing to ensure that you are fully covered for all aspects of your trip. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
At our company, we believe that adventure is for everyone, including minors. We welcome children and young adults who are up for a challenge and have a passion for exploring the Himalayas.
However, we do have some specific requirements for minors who wish to participate in our outdoor activities. One of the requirements is that the minor must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian throughout the trip. This guardian must have full responsibility for the minor's safety and well-being during the trek or expedition.
In addition to the guardian requirement, we also expect the minor to be physically fit and able to handle the challenges of the trip. We recommend that minors participate in some form of physical activity or training before the trip to ensure they are adequately prepared.
We understand that every child is unique, and we want to ensure that each child has a safe and enjoyable experience. Therefore, we reserve the right to assess each child's fitness level and may require additional medical clearance from a doctor before confirming their participation.
If you have any questions or concerns about our child policy or traveling with a minor, please don't hesitate to contact us. Our team is happy to provide additional information and support to ensure that you and your family have a safe and unforgettable adventure in the Himalayas.
Participating in outdoor activities, such as trekking, mountaineering, and climbing comes with inherent risks. The unpredictable nature of the Himalayas, including its weather, altitude, and remoteness, can present various dangers, such as rock falls, landslides, and avalanches. As a result, we cannot guarantee your 100% safety during your trip, and we are not responsible for any loss, damage, or injury that may occur.
It is important to recognize that traveling in the Himalayas involves certain inherent risks, and you must assume full responsibility for your safety and well-being. Before embarking on any outdoor activity, we strongly advise you to read and understand the risks associated with the trip, as well as the challenges that you may face.
We take all possible precautions to ensure the safety of our guests, including providing experienced guides, and high-quality equipment, and following proper safety protocols. However, we cannot 100% guarantee your safety or prevent accidents from occurring.
Therefore, we strongly advise you to purchase travel insurance that covers accidents, medical emergencies, and evacuation.
By booking a trip with us, you acknowledge that you are aware of the risks associated with travel in the Himalayas and that you assume full responsibility for your own safety and well-being. We encourage you to take all necessary precautions to minimize the risks associated with your trip
