2. Payments can be wired by bank transfer, PayPal or Wise please use any means of transfer according to your convenience.
3. After receiving the photocopy of your passport, and 15% advance from you, we send you the final confirmation receipt.
4. The remaining balance can be made after your arrival in Nepal. Full payment should be made before the trip departure. Be mindful, we also reserve the right to cancel your trip provided full amount is not paid in time.
We understand sometimes unavoidable circumstances lead clients to have to cancel their trip, therefore we have the following policy in place:
For cancellations made more than one month prior to the departure date there will be a 100% refund (minus any transaction fees).
For cancellations made less than one month prior to the departure date there will be a 50% refund (minus transaction fees)
Should clients have to cancel (due to illness or an emergency at home) once they have arrived in Kathmandu and paid the full amount, there will be a refund of 80% of the balance AFTER deduction of any costs which have already been incurred (flight ticket cancellation fees, hotel cancellation fees, part payment to porters, etc).
In case of refunds, we will process this immediately, but it might take 5 to 14 days for the process to go through the bank. Please be patient.
Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, clients return early from their trip. If this does happen, there is no refund. In these cases, payments are non-refundable because guides and porters have to be paid for the number of original days booked.
Domestic Flight Delay
The reason you came to Nepal was the Himalayas, right? So, while they are beautiful, Himalayas are also unpredictable! Sometimes domestic flights get cancelled due to bad weather, particularly those flights to the mountain areas. Should flights be delayed or cancelled, the client is liable to bear the cost of any additional nights in a hotel.
Passport and Visa
All clients must have a valid passport with at least 6 months validity from return date.
Nepal visas can be obtained from the Consulate, Online, Immigration office of your country or from your arrival at Kathmandu Airport.
