If by a rare consequence Himalayan Daredevils calls off/cancels a trek:

At Himalayan Daredevils, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event that we do call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen circumstances or natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that prevents us from carrying out a trek in a safe manner, unforeseeable circumstances like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that prevents a safe trekking experience, Himalayan Daredevils will issue a voucher summing up to the same amount as your trek fee.

The voucher can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.


If the entirety of your group fails to reach or cross the pickup point, or abandons the trek, due to any unforeseen circumstances like snowfall or heavy rainfall, landslide, and such, in such a case the voucher will not be issued. You can, however, choose to repeat the trek with us

The voucher is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. Vouchers are issued only when the whole trek is canceled or called off on behalf of Himalayan Daredevils.

In the rare event that Himalayan Daredevils shift a trek:

As we mention always, weather conditions at high altitudes are extremely unpredictable and can change at any time of any day. Also, situations like natural calamities or political unrest, pandemics and lockdowns, etc are out of our control and if an event cannot run under any such circumstances that we do not directly have control over then we will try to give you an alternative trek, which means your trek will be shifted from one trek to another, which will be safer and more favorable.

In these cases, a voucher is issued to mitigate the difference in cost between the two treks. You can redeem the voucher at any time over a period of one year from the date of issue. A refund fee or refund of the difference is not applicable.


Change of trek batch is dependent on the availability of seats in the batch

In case of transferring a trek to a friend, he/she should satisfy all the mandatory requirements put forward by Himalayan Daredevils. We holds the right to change/cancel the policies, without prior notice

Cash refund is applicable only in case of bookings made without using any promotional offer code or vouchers
