CHANGES TO YOUR TRIP AND PRICE DUE TO NATURAL DISASTER, FLIGHT DELAY, ETC

Traveling with Himalayan Scenery treks requires a degree of flexibility, good humor, and an understanding as unforeseen changes to the itinerary, modes of transportation and accommodation can occur at any time. Changes can also be cancellation and postponement of the trip. Such changes happen due to the unpredictable circumstances such as flight delay, political unrest, bad weather, road blockage, any natural disaster (earthquake, landslide, flood, snowfall, avalanche, etc.) or other things beyond our control.

When such situations occur, the above-mentioned cancellation and booking changes policy doesn’t apply. In other words, there will be no refund of the amount you have paid to us. And any extra cost occurred shall be borne by the clients. We also won’t be responsible for the loss of employment, injury, illness, and loss of life resulted from the situations beyond our control. However, we will try our best to take you to safety from any kind of danger.

And in the event of cancellation of the booked trip due to reasons out of our control, you are free to reschedule your trip or take an alternative trip of the same category. While rescheduling the trip, you will receive the full credit from your previously booked trip, and you will only pay the difference amount between old and new prices if the price increases for the rescheduled departure.

Furthermore, single-room supplement charge will be imposed on the clients who don’t have another tour participant to share accommodation with. Our trip packages are based on twin-sharing accommodation. And we reserve the right to revise pricing rates posted in our marketing material under any circumstances or on the pressure of various external factors like changes in the exchange rate, government action, etc which are far from our control.

You should pay for any extra transportation you book in case of flight cancellation or any other problems. You will not be refunded for canceled flight or accommodation.
