The purchase of any travel services offered by Trek The Himalayas (here-in-after referred to as ‘TTH’) constitutes a contractual arrangement between TTH (‘First Party’) and Client (here-in-after referred to as ‘You’) (Second Party). Both Parties are hereinafter referred to as (‘Parties’). Booking of services with TTH represents your unconditional acceptance of the terms & conditions set out herein. These terms and conditions shall be binding on you and all the travel companions booked by you.
Trekking, Peak climbing and mountaineering in the Himalayan region carry an inherent risk to the life and property of both Parties. The weather changes in minutes causing injury and death, which is beyond TTH’s control. TTH does its best to reduce all types of risks, discomfort and hazard to the best of its ability (within financial constraints), yet there are chances of accidents, mishaps and deficiency in service. Ergo, you must agree with these terms and conditions. Please ensure that you read carefully and understand these terms before confirming your booking.

TTH offers trip(s) and trek(s) that require varying levels of fitness. The level of difficulty can be based on the extent of physical stress, the terrain, weather and/or climate. The degree of difficulty for some trips can be physically demanding. To enable you to choose appropriately and prepare accordingly, carefully review the level of difficulty of each trip before booking the same.
TTH is not a medical expert(s) and it is your responsibility to obtain medical advice, and the latest health requirements including inoculations and vaccines before you join a trip. TTH takes no responsibility for your inability to cope with the level of difficulty on a trip. While most treks do not require specific preparation, a reasonable level of fitness adds to your experience. The onus of being fit, healthy and in shape before getting on the trip rests with you. You are solely responsible for ensuring that you are ready for the trip in every way, including physical and mental conditioning. You are also expected to carry the right clothing and equipment. While there is no age limitation on any of TTH trips, any disability, pregnancy, mental or physical or any other medical condition that may affect your fitness to complete the trek must be revealed at the time of booking the trip to TTH. You also undertake that you and Your travel companions, for whom You have signed up, do not suffer from any condition or disability that could create a hazard to your well-being or others on a trip.
Failure to share this information with TTH can result in immediate termination of your trip at any stage of the trip with a full cancellation penalty. TTH reserves the right to decline, accept, and/or remove from a trip any participant, at his or her sole expense, whose condition could create a hazard to any other member of the trip, including themselves.

All necessary documents should be presented in advance. TTH is not accountable in case of any trip formality not being completed in time before the trip departs or the absence of essential papers and documents.

In pursuance of this responsibility, TTH reserves the right to modify or cancel the trip or part of the trip under circumstances, including but not limited to, Acts of God, road blockage, political unrest, cancellation of flight, delayed arrival, sickness, accidents, events beyond TTH control etc. Any extra cost arising from such circumstances shall be borne by you on the spot. Wherever possible TTH shall intimate you of such changes in advance or while on the trip.
No refund (Partial or otherwise) will be made if you voluntarily leave or drop out of a trip for any reason after the trip has begun. No refunds will be made for any accommodation, transportation, sightseeing, meals or services not utilised.
In case, TTH cancels the trip due to unforeseen circumstances it would be happy to suggest an alternative trip/date. You shall be notified of the same. You may accept the alternate trip suggestion, or voucher (with a one-year redeemable limitation) or request another trip of your choice. The difference in cost, if applicable, will have to be borne by you. TTH shall, under no circumstances, be liable for any additional fees, credit card charges, TAC(s), or travel arrangements including but not limited to flight cancellation, railway, hotel, visa costs, onward arrangements coinciding with this trip etc. Refunds in such a scenario will happen as per our cancellation policy.
Refunds are not possible for any missed or unused services including voluntary/involuntary termination of the tour on account of sickness, death of a family member, late arrival on the tour etc.
TTH is also not liable to pay any compensation for any loss arising as a consequence of trip curtailment, alteration, extension or cancellation due to any reasons. However, you expressly agree that, in any event, the maximum liability of TTH will be limited to the trip cost paid to TTH.

No refund for unused services is possible in such cases.
You also agree to abide by the authority of the group leader designated by TTH.
