Terms & Conditions

PAYMENT SCHEDULE

50% per person deposit is required to secure your spot. The balance is then due 60 days prior to your trip start date. Final acceptance of any participant is subject to receipt and review of all required forms, documents, and payment.


TRIP ITINERARY CHANGES AND ALTERNATE TRIPS

All Trans Himalaya Company trips are subject to itinerary changes based on a variety of circumstances, including, but not limited to, permit availability, snowpack, river crossings, wildlife, park or land closures, and forest fires. At times alternate trips in different areas may be offered as substitutes. The price of a hiking trip will never change once you’re registered. Payments are not refundable for itinerary changes, alternate trips, and land closures. If a trip is canceled due to circumstances beyond our control and no alternate trip/itinerary is offered, a trip credit equal to the full amount paid will be issued.

The Trans Himalayan reserves the right to cancel trips. The Trans Himalayan is not responsible for additional expenses incurred by preparing for the trip (for example non-refundable advance purchase air tickets, clothing, equipment, visa fees, medical expenses, etc.).
