Choosing the Right Trek

Please also see Trek Grading

Our holidays are designed to be adventurous and are aimed at real travellers. To make the most of your trip, expect the unexpected. If you anticipate the continuation of a well-ordered home or office routine, you may find things frustrating. Most of our holidays do go as planned, but flight delays, strikes, inclement weather, snowfalls, rivers in flood and washed away footpaths do happen. They could result in changes to your itinerary. Our staff in Nepal and agents in India, Bhutan, Kenya, Tanzania and Morocco are trained to handle such eventualities, however unlikely they may be.

Remember too that adventure travel takes you to places where there may be inherent hazards, such as slippery footpaths and river crossings. Our staff will do their best to warn you of such hazards but cannot be held responsible as it must be understood that they are an accepted part of adventure travel.
