You will be automatically enrolled for emergency air evacuation coverage with RIPCORD, Tusker’s air evacuation company. We have negotiated very reasonable premiums for Tusker clients. These premiums vary according to the length of coverage you require for your trip, and will be reflected on your Tusker statement.
4-20 members. In the event the group size falls below the minimum number and we are forced to cancel the trip, we will notify you 45 days before departure, and will be happy to reschedule you on another departure, or refund you the full land cost. As we will not refund any airfares, we suggest you purchase trip cancellation/interruption insurance to cover the cost of any airline cancellation penalties.
Land Cost :
The cost is per person, double occupancy and quoted in US dollars. The land cost does not include internal airfare - Kathmandu/Lukla/Kathmadu, or evacuation coverage. National park permit fees and flight costs can change without notice.
We price our trips according to the number of full-price trip members. Tusker Trail staff, and other discounted trip members are excluded from the count for this purpose. We invoice you at the highest tier price (the smallest sized group for which we can run the trip) until final payment is due. If the group size increases before the trip departs, thus reducing the trip price, the price will drop and we will refund the difference to you.
Single accommodation is not available at the lodges while trekking, but is available in Kathmandu - is subject to availability. You may request to have your own room at the hotel in Kathmandu, or to be matched up to share with another group member. If you request your own room at the Kathmandu hotel, or if you are forced to room alone due to an odd-numbered group, we will charge you a "hotel single supplement." If you are forced to room alone at any of the lodges while on the trek due to an odd-numbered group, we will charge you a "trek single supplement". Where single rooms are not available, we will match you up with another group member of the same gender.
