Crystal Mountain Treks

Trip Planning:

Every individual has their unique travel objective. With our vast experience in planning and running treks and tours in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and India, we will ensure that your journey has been meticulously designed to meet your individual travel needs. Besides the scheduled trips listed under “Featured Trips”, all our trips are fully customizable - barring any flight or entry restrictions.

We will design the first and second itinerary for you without any obligation to book. When you contact us, please remember to provide as much information as possible about your expectations for the trip. After we have designed two itineraries for you, we will happily design more itineraries once we receive $500 as trip deposit.


Booking a spot on a trip:

To book a trip, we require a non-refundable deposit of $500 per person. Additionally, if your trip involves flights to Lhasa in Tibet or Paro in Bhutan, the full cost of airfare is required with the deposit payment. Once we receive your deposit, we will confirm hotels, vehicles, flights and staff for your journey and will send you a confirmation via email.

Deposits can be paid by wire transfer (we will refund US$ 30 to cover your cost for wire transfer) or Credit card (Visa only).

The balance of the payment is due on arrival in Kathmandu.

* Booking policy for some trips may differ in which case they are outlined in the trip description page.


Trip Cancellation:

  • Cancel prior to departure, forfeit non-refundable deposit (and regional airfare payments)
  • No refunds available for unused services once trip begins.
  • However, if you cancel your trip for a valid reason*, we will apply your deposit or final payment, after deducting any expenses we might have incurred (Bhutan and Tibet have higher cancellation charges), to another trek and tour that you must participate in within one year of the cancellation.

* Crystal Mountain Treks reserves the right to determine what constitutes a valid reason.

* Cancellation policy for some trips may differ in which case they are outlined in the trip description page.


Payment Procedure:

Deposits must be paid by wire transfer (we will refund US$30 to cover your cost for wire transfer).

Balance is payable on arrival in Kathmandu either in cash, Travelers checks or credit card (Visa only).
