How to Book Trip
The ongoing pandemic (COVID-19) has made a significant impact on travel. We acknowledge how difficult this situation is and keeping this in consideration, on 15 March 2020, we made a difficult but necessary decision to postponed all trips departing between March 16 and Apr 30 due to the current travel restrictions being implemented globally. Nepal government has since implemented several decisions such as country lockdown, international and domestic flight restrictions, travel restrictions and more. Those who took the uncalculated risk by operating the trips are currently facing a hard time. Not only are they facing difficult situations coping with the new decisions but most importantly they have put their clients at a risk and far away from home, where they should currently be during this unprecedented time.
While the tourism industry has been put to halt for the moment, there is nothing we can do now but to stay at home, look after yourself and loved ones and most importantly look forward positively. In order to keep the positive spirit ongoing, we have amended our trip booking process with an aim to make your next holiday booking easier.
1. Trip style:
We offer fixed departure trips, private trips and tailor-made trips as per your requirements and preferences. Please select the trip style as per your preference and we will accommodate your request accordingly.
Fixed Departure Trips:
If you are a solo traveller and looking for a group to join, please head over to the fixed departures date section on your desired trip page and choose the travel dates that best suit your schedule. Depending on availability, your trip will be run. The trip is guaranteed to run even if its only one participants. (Some trips will require a minimum of 2 participants). Choose the trip and click on your chosen trip date that matches with your schedule and fill out the trip booking page. If the provided date doesn’t match with your schedule then we can organize the trip on the date more suitable for you.
If you want a guided trip but prefer doing it alone or with your group, then doing a private trip may be of your style. The trip will be a private trip, meaning it will only be you and your group with local support crew (Leader, Assistant Guide and Porters). There will not be any additional charges for this and you can also schedule the trip date as per your schedule. We will accommodate your request and run the trip accordingly.
While we have a wide range of holidays catering the needs for all ages, groups and solo travellers; if you are looking to do something different and want to make any changes in the given itinerary or services, please let us know and we will accommodate your request. We take great pride in being able to customize each of our client’s adventures as per their preferences and requirements. Kindly get in touch with us with your request and we will tailor the trip for you as per your need.
2. Making a booking:
We have made the booking process as simple as we can. Before you book your trip we request you to confirm the travel dates and check the international flight availability. Please ensure the international flight tickets are available for your desired travel dates before making the booking. While we are still able to changes your travel dates if notified at least 3 months early, ensuring the availability of flight and travel dates as per your schedule will help you avoid unnecessary hassle which may arise afterwards.
