Client is Responsible
A tour/trek guide who represents Path Finder Treks deserves all power during your tours. If you entrust any illegitimate act, you are forced to leave the tour. No reimbursement will be made in such case.
Personal travel insurance is not incorporated in the prices quoted. While each effort is made to guarantee the safety of all travelers, it is a condition of booking that you take out their own travel insurance policy. To defend against unexpected situations, it is sensible to take a “Trip cancellations and medical insurance policy” before your arrival into Kathmandu. Such medical policies should cover transportation costs in the event of helicopter or surface evacuation. Medical coverage is especially mandatory for those who are trekking at high altitudes.
If you have any subject of a complaint about the trip/tour, you must inform the tour leader or guide at the earliest possibility and provide them opportunity to help at once.
A legal guardian must accompany all travelers under the age of fifteen. If you have a question regarding age and suitability, please contact us for further information.
You agree that ……………….Treks may use images (Photographs) of you have taken during the trip without recourse to you and without compensation to you, for publicity and promotion purposes through any medium it chooses.
