This trek is a high altitude expedition and involves risk. Each individual will have to sign an indemnity form before joining the expedition.
Every traveller bears the responsibility of carrying his/her luggage. There is no personal porter assigned to carry your luggage. However if you wish to add a porter to your itinerary a charge of 400 / per day per porter will be levied. Inquire for more information about offloading luggage.
The treks take you to most arduous regions of the country, so please keep in mind that you will not be provided with luxury facilities.
Since it is a high-altitude expedition, you will not have access to hot water for bathing.
Please note, due to lack of huge accommodation issues in these regions there may be times that we accommodate 3 people in one room.
Once you agree to join the expedition, you will need to agree to the rules and regulation set by Eccentric Travels private Limited. Any behaviour which leads to delay or non-agreement can lead to termination of traveller.
Group discounting is a company policy and can result to different pricing for different travellers.
There may be delays in food at times because of the movable camps and logic that the support staff walks with you to the next campsite.
The food provided to you is veg + egg during all days of trek. The meals are designed to provide you with enough nutrition for the trek. Hygiene is a priority and will not be compromised.
Bonfires will be subject to availability of wood and permits from the local authorities.
On a trek, a medical emergency or any other emergency may arise. If for any reason you are sent down from the trek then Eccentric Travels will make arrangements for your return to the base camp or nearest road head with a staff member to accompany you. S/he may not be trained personnel.
Evacuation or dealing with emergencies is extremely difficult in the mountains. A normal trek of 2 hours may take 6 hours in an emergency (a sick person is not easy to evacuate). Doctors do not go along with a team. Doctors are not available at the base camp or nearest road head either. Eccentric Travels trek leaders are trained to administer first aid and know how to deal with issues related to the mountains.
Registering for this trek is an understanding that you have read up on the difficulties of high altitude trekking and understand the risks. You have also understood what AMS, HAPE and HACE are. You have taken efforts to educate yourself and you are in a position to manage your own altitude related emergency.
