Fitness and Health
Depending upon the type of trip you undertake, physical fitness level varies. Cultural tours, pleasure and soft trekking trips are designed for all age groups who are reasonably in a good health condition and physically active. However, rigorous/strenuous trekking, adventure sports and mountaineering trips require a very good level of physical fitness and consent by your doctor (physician).
Our stated price for your trips does not include your travel and personal insurance. For your protection, we highly recommend that you purchase insurance policy covering your personal medical expenses, emergency rescue by helicopter, baggage loss and trip cancellation on your own. If you need our assistance, we help you buy the policy.
Our local staff employed for your trips are insured under our company’s insurance policy.
The itinerary as programmed at the time of booking is followed in general. On occasion, it may be necessary to adjust the sequence of activities or hotels due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control such as weather, natural calamity, airline schedule change, political disturbances, road detours etc. Any extra costs incurred due to such changes should be borne by the clients themselves. No refunds will be considered on the basis of itinerary/route changes.
