vantage point of Sarangkot for a stunning sunrise view of the Annapurna range and
the much revered Machhapuchhre [Fishtail] peak; it’s an astounding experience to
see the red maroon glows that falls on the mountain ranges and the gleaming
rays of the sun slashing through the gaps of the mountains with birds flying across
the early morning skies; we softly whisper our praises to God and thank him for
this beauty and his blessings.
We then return to our hotel for breakfast and get set for a guided tour where we

Before joining the tour/trek we recommend you take out travel insurance. This should include adequate cover for baggage, medical expenses, cancellation, helicopter evacuation and emergency repatriation. You must supply documentary proof of it. If you do not have travel insurance you must have a credit card with at least a US$5000 limit. Travel Insurance is imperative especially when doing treks above 3000m.
We reserve the right to cancel your booking at any time before departure if we are not satisfied that adequate insurance is in place for you. All baggage and personal effects, including bikes, are at all times at your own risk. We will not be responsible for any loss, damage or accident to any luggage and property, howsoever incurred. We advise you to check the limitations of your insurance policy in this respect.
The trek information sheets and the dossier give information and conditions relating to the tour/trek and are deemed to be part of the contract and so you should be fully aware of its contents. However, the itinerary is an indication of what the group should accomplish, but not a contractual obligation - Changes may be made because of exceptional weather, flight cancellations, sickness or other unforeseeable circumstances - No refunds are given for unused services or unrealized dreams. We do offer our sympathies though. All information and advice provided (vaccinations, climate, trekking equipment, visas etc) is given in good faith but without responsibility by us. NATURE CAN BE A BEAST WHEN LEAST EXPECTED. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ALWAYS READ YOUR TOUR/TREK INFORMATION COPIES, THOROUGHLY.

The decision of the leader as to the conduct, itinerary and objectives of the tour/trek is final. If, in the opinion of the leader, your behaviour or physical condition is detrimental to the safety, welfare and well-being of the group as a whole (which are dominant considerations), or if the leader considers your general wellbeing will be put at risk by continuing with the holiday, you may be asked to leave the tour without the right to any refund for unused services. Your acceptance of the tour leader’s decisions which could affect the group or individuals is vital for your safety and overall good welfare.

If you fail to follow this simple procedure we will have been hampered of the opportunity to investigate and put right your complaint during your holiday and this may affect your rights under this contract. We shall try to agree on a settlement in good faith and with due justice; but in the event of any disputes, this process shall be governed by the laws of Nepal.
