GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

a) Management and booking.

1. Reservation request
1.1 The consumer who wishes to purchase a package tour makes a “reservation request”. After this request, the retailer or, where appropriate, the organizing agency, undertakes to make the necessary arrangements to obtain confirmation of the reservation according to the number of places available and the period for which it has been requested.

1.2 At the time of the reservation request, the agency may require the consumer to pay a deposit equivalent to a maximum of 20% of the price of the trip for which the reservation is requested. If the reservation is confirmed, the amount delivered will be charged to the price of travel. If the consumer withdraws his reservation request before the confirmation, the deposited sum will be reimbursed, minus, if applicable, the reasonable management costs.

1.3 If the consumer requests the elaboration of a custom-made trip, the agency can demand the payment of a quantity for the confection of the project. If the consumer accepts the offer of trip elaborated by the agency, and this one can confirm him the services that it includes, the given sum will be imputed to the price of the trip. Whenever it cannot confirm them, the agency will have to return the quantities delivered by the consumer.

1.4 In all the previous cases, if the agency cannot offer the requested trip and offers the consumer a similar or different trip, unless expressly indicated otherwise, it will be understood that it maintains that offer for 24 hours. In these cases, the contract will be completed if the consumer accepts the offer within that time or that has been expressly established.

2. Confirmation of the reservation
The perfection of the travel contract occurs with the confirmation of the reservation. From that moment on the travel contract is binding for both parties.

3. Payment of the price
3.1 At the moment of the perfection of the contract the consumer will have to pay an amount that corresponds to 40% of the price of the trip or, in its case, to complete until that amount the amounts that had given to account. If the consumer does not make such payment, the agency will require it to make it within a reasonably short time set.

3.2 The payment of the rest of the price will be made when the agency offers the delivery to the consumer of transport tickets, travel vouchers or any other document essential for the proper execution of the benefits that make up the trip. If the consumer does not make such payment, the agency will require you to make it within the time limit it sets. If no deadline is set, it is understood that payment must be made no later than 7 days before departure.

5. Accommodation
5.1 Unless otherwise indicated in the brochure or provided in particular conditions: a) In relation to those areas of Nepal where there is an official classification of hotels or any other type of accommodation, the brochure contains the tourist classification that is granted in the corresponding country.

In any case, the agency must ensure the best correspondence between the rating used and the expectations that this may reasonably generate in a consumer. b) The room occupancy schedule depends on the rules established in each country. In general, the room can be occupied from fourteen hours on the day of arrival and must be vacated before twelve hours on the day of departure, regardless of the time at which the hotel is scheduled to arrive or the time at which the trip is scheduled to continue. c) Common hotel rooms are generally double rooms to which one or two beds can be added if necessary, but there are also some rooms with larger double beds. There are also hostels with common rooms and bunk beds, where a large number of travellers can stay.

5.2 Except in some exceptions where you can find comfortable hotels, in general during the trekking route the accommodations are usually quite humble guest houses, and the rooms are usually very rustic with beds for 2 people and usually the toilet is outside the room and is common for all travelers in the accommodation. They are usually quite similar to mountain huts.
