Mera Peak Cancellation/Refund Policy

Note: Alpine Ascents International highly recommends trip cancellation insurance for all expeditions. Due to the nature and heavy costs of government and operator permits, Alpine Ascents International must adhere to a stringent refund policy.

  • Each deposit, regardless of amount, includes a $300 non refundable registration fee.
  • Full refunds, less registration fee, will be provided 120 days prior to course, trek and/or expedition date.
  • Refunds of 50% will be provided 90-119 days prior to course, trek, and/or expedition date.
  • No refunds will be provided 89 days prior to course, trek and/or expedition date.
    All refund requests must be made in writing and be received in our office within the deadlines stated above.
  • All balances are due 120 days prior to departure date unless otherwise specified.
    Participants whose balances are not received by the 120-day deadline as stated above, risk forfeiture of their place on the expedition.

Note: Alpine Ascents reserves the right to waive any fees. As we offer personalized service, we will attempt to accommodate changes and cancellations when necessary, waiving certain fees when feasible.

Trip Cancellation Insurance

As there are many unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or leading up to the trip, we highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

In many situations, this may be the only way to receive a refund for unused services.

In brief, trip cancellation insurance may allow you to get reimbursement if you need to cancel your expedition when you are not entitled to a refund from Alpine Ascents.

Alpine Ascents International offers a plan in conjunction with our travel insurance partner.
