Weather conditions, road conditions, vehicle breakdowns, landslides, river crossings, the availability of Pony/Porter and the health of climbers can all contribute to changes. The Expedition Leader and our Escort will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but an easy going nature will be an asset!

    • Please ensure your insurance covers you for the heights you are likely to attain and for rescue as well. When you have chosen, and booked your insurance, please provide SHIKHAR TRAVELS with your Insurers name, their 24 hour emergency telephone number and your Policy number with them. Remember, your insurance is not worth the paper it’s written on if we don’t know the details and you need their assistance.
