Booking ConditionsRisk Awareness / Liability Waiver
I have been advised by DCXP as agent for Arun of the following matters
in relation to my upcoming trip with Arun Treks. I have been advised
that travel, trekking, climbing and especially mountaineering are
inherently dangerous activities. I may be killed, injured, incapacitated
and experience pain, illness and suffering. I may experience loss,
damage or theft of my property. Any of the above may not be Arun Treks
or DCXP’s fault or the fault of anyone. These incidents may be caused by
others in my party, employees or directors of Arun Treks, their
subcontractors or even my guide, may be caused by environmental factors,
or even just physical or mental exhaustion which can happen at any time
on my trip. There is no way of predicting all the hazards I may face.
While Arun Treks will take reasonable precautions to minimise the risks,
there is no way Arun Treks can guarantee my safety on this trip 100%.
I acknowledge that often the areas of operation are remote with
little or no immediate medical support. In some remote areas self-rescue
is the only option. My guide may need to begin first aid appropriate to
the remoteness of the area and the nature of my ailment. By signing
this document I certify that I have read and understood these risks and
they are acceptable to me.
I also agree not to seek compensation, financial or otherwise
from any incident that might occur during or associated with the trip,
from Arun Treks or DCXP, or their respective directors, officers,
employees, agents, partners or subcontractors.
Arun Treks and its agents including employees, guides, leaders,
subcontractors and porters shall not be liable for loss, death or
injury, to any of its clients or loss or damage or delay to their
baggage, personal effects or other property arising from the following:
1. Acts of God including but not limited to Landslides, Ice Cliff Collapse, Avalanche, Earthquakes, Flooding and Fire;
2. Civil disturbances of any nature including but not limited to War, Revolution, Riots, Strikes or Labour Shortages;
3. Environmental Factors such as changes to trails rivers and valleys, loose rocks, unstable snow, unstable ground, bad weather;
4. Any other circumstance beyond our control and responsibility.
Your non-refundable deposit amount is specific to each trip and listed
on the DCXP website or trip documentation. If you cancel you lose your
Payment in full is normally due 60 days
ahead of departure date, if you don’t pay by this date you can lose your
place on the trip and your deposit is forfeit. In rare cases earlier
payment will be required.
Normal Policy Is:
If you cancel 60-31 days before departure date you lose 50% of your payments.
If you cancel less than 31 days before departure date you lose 100% of your payments.
If you cancel and we are able to fill your place on the trip we may
refund your money at our discretion. This would normally be subject to
an administration fee. We may also choose to offer you another trip
(transferable) at our discretion. Arun Treks reserves the right to vary
or cancel a trip or a specific departure and will endeavour to advise
you of cancellations not less than 42 days before departure. In the
event of Arun Treks cancelling a trip, we would work with all the
members of the trip to try to provide an alternative venue. If you do
not accept alternative arrangements we will refund all payments you have
made to Arun Treks, less any unrecoverable costs. Arun Treks will not
be liable for any additional costs incurred by you such as airticket
cancellation fees or changes. We advise you to have a travel insurance
policy that covers cancellation.
Arun Treks will make every effort to achieve the objectives of the given
trip/expedition. By signing below I understand that variations may be
necessary for reasons including but not limited to; safety,
interruptions to transportation, political unrest, prevailing weather
conditions and the needs of the group.
Trip Price Policy
The trip price may change at any stage. Changes might be due to
international currency fluctuations, inflation, fuel prices, conditions,
fees or other changes. Once your full payment has cleared into our
account, we would normally not vary the price. If the trip price were to
vary considerably (>10%) after you had paid your non-refundable
deposit and you decided to cancel we would likely allow a full refund or
transfer to another trip.

Gross Negligence, Breach of Contract or otherwise.
