Everest Cancellation/Refund Policy

Refund Policy: No refunds are provided on the deposit or any payments for the expedition. The reason for such a strict refund policy is due to the great expense incurred in such an expedition. All gear and food must be purchased several months in advance to ensure that it reaches Nepal and Base Camp before we arrive. Our refund policy also protects other members who have committed their time and money to the expedition.

Each deposit and remaining balance is nonrefundable.

All balances are due 120 days prior to departure date unless otherwise specified.

Emergency: In case of emergency and at any time during the expedition, Alpine Ascents and its staff will use all resources available to rescue and evacuate injured climbers. From Base Camp, helicopter rescue is possible. Above Base Camp, an emergency situation can only be handled with the resources of the expedition and other expeditions in the area. Any additional cost involved in an emergency will be the responsibility of the climbing member(s) requiring immediate medical attention and/or evacuation.

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.

Many thanks for organizing the expedition. It was a fantastic experience! I am looking forward to climbing with AAI on other mountains.
