Once you have chosen your trip, please select the 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 it’s only one participant. (Some trips will require a minimum of 2 participants). Choose the trip and click on your chosen trip date that matches your schedule and fill out the trip booking page. If the provided date doesn’t match your schedule then we can organize the trip on the date more suitable for you.
Private Trip: If you want a guided trip but prefer doing it alone or with your own 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 a full local support crew (Trek/Climb 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.
