TERMS AND CONDITIONS
While you may be able to find a less expensive agency than Unlimited Expedition, remember that our aim is to provide a quality service that is good value for your money. The prices are in U.S. dollars and are based on double occupancy of a tent or hostel room unless otherwise stated.
Single occupancy is available at an extra cost. Whilst we endeavor to keep our prices stable, they are dependent on exchange rates, fuel and transport costs and any other unforeseen circumstances and are therefore subject to change.
Prices vary according to the following factors:
The number of people travelling in a group
Whether you opt for public or private transport to and from the trailhead
Whether a stay in a hostel is included as part of the trek
Whether you would like a separate guide and cook
Whether you would like a tailor-made trip, which involves more logistics in moving people and gear and the hiring of donkeys and donkey handlers or porters
Whether you opt for a full package that includes domestic airfares, bus fares, all transfers and hotel accommodation
It is a prerequisite that each client has full accident and medical insurance cover including emergency evacuation and repatriation. Please check carefully that your insurance policy covers you for altitudes above 3,000m. You must bring a copy of your insurance certificate with you.
We also strongly recommend that you purchase a comprehensive travel insurance that covers trip cancellation, trip interruption, travel delay, baggage delay or damage and theft.
