How to Book Trip
COVID-19 Updated booking conditions:
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 May 31 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.
Even at the worst time, wouldn’t it be nice to have something to look forward to? Keeping this in mind, we have amended our trip booking policy for the time being allowing interested travellers to book the trip with a minimal deposit payable and offering maximum flexibility. Yes, you read it right, book now and pay the balance amount only after your arrival in Kathmandu.
We have a wide range of trips suitable for people of all ages and groups. We offer both fixed departure and private trips as per your need. All our trip dates for autumn 2020 and 2021 are published on site. Simply choose the departure date suitable to you and book your trip from our online booking page. If you would like to do a private trip, we can accommodate your request accordingly. Simply write to us at [email protected] and we will help you to process the trip booking. We will send you the booking form to sign up for the trip. Your trip will be confirmed instantly after we have received the duly filled booking form, 20% of trip cost as a deposit and your passport copy. You are only required to pay the balance trip amount after your arrival in Kathmandu. If due to any reason (Second wave of COVID-19 or travel restriction by Nepal government), we are not able to operate the trip after you have paid the deposit, your deposit will not be a loss. We will hold your deposit and transfer your exact deposit amount for the next trip date as per your schedule and there will not be any additional charges incurred to you.
We value our client’s safety as our utmost priority and we were among the first company to announce the postponing of all our spring trips for later days. We hope this will offer you something to look forward to during this unprecedented time. We sincerely hope this ongoing pandemic will end soon and we look forward to guiding you in the Himalayas.
Dream now and Visit later! Your trip will be confirmed instantly.
