We want you to enjoy a trek with us, so before you book we set out a few points of information to avoid any disappointment.
We ask for a deposit of 10% per cent of the trek cost to guarantee a booking. The balance of 90% percent is payable in full, no later than the date of starting.
1/Read up on it before you book a trek. You may want to look at indiamike.com, which has posts on Ladakh in the J & K section, both from Indians and India-loving foreigners and provides contrasting perspectives.
AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness is at best debilitating and at worst fatal, far too many people suffer from it on a trek despite it being almost entirely avoidable. Please read about it before you come, a useful website is http://www.altitudemedicine.org/ - American biased but accurate, it contains all you need to know.
If you look at this website please absorb the advice about Diamox (check with your Doctor) and hydration.
A safe rate of ascent can be summarised as sleeping for 3 nights at 3500 metres then ascending to 4000 on day 4, 4400 on day five and no more than 4700 on day 6. If you plan to sleep higher than this, take an extra day at 4700. Slower will be better, faster and some of you will definitely get sick. As this may mean abandoning the holiday of a lifetime.......
2/ Please remember that whilst you don't need to be paratrooper fit to enjoy a trek in Ladakh, you do need to be fit. This can be difficult for some of you who are chained to a desk for your working day but you have to do it. (Hats off to those bravehearts who go jogging in the early morning Delhi smog.) If you are unfit you will not manage to finish. Go to the gym, work out at home etc etc
3/ Buy decent boots, they don't have to be expensive but trainers don't grip well enough on trails. Don't even think of chappals. Believe us, some people do.....
4/ Buy or hire decent clothing, waterproofs, sun hat, plenty to keep you warm at night, it can drop below freezing on some campsites. Don't underestimate the cold if you come from the South.
5/ The Himalaya is the Abode of the Gods. This means that They, not you or us are in charge. If They send rain or snow the trek may be curtailed - rivers get too high, snow blocks the pass etc. We cannot refund in these circumstances if we have to turn back.
6/ We always trek at a proper rate of acclimatisation, in order to keep you safe. This may mean that some days are short and you may want to speed up and go further; if the guide says no then this will be because it is not safe to do so. We will not compromise on this, so don't ask.
7/ We cannot refund monies if the Client or one of their party has to return because of illness or unwillingness. Sometimes it happens that one person wants to go home, that will mean that horseman, carrying a tent, cooking materials and the client's bag may have to go with them. Often this will not be practical for our team to be split and the trek will have to be abandoned by everyone
Our guides and horsemen have to be paid and have given up other work to do this, supplies have to be paid for. The same goes for bad weather conditions that force detours or cancellation. We cannot give money back in these situations, so please think carefully before making that decision. Sometimes, in case of illness, especially AMS, your guide will insist on delay or return, please respect that decision. All of that said, most of our treks go smoothly and you will in fact have the holiday of a lifetime!
