Everest Trek Cancellation/Refund Policy

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

Refund Policy

  • Full refunds, less the non refundable registration fee, will be provided for cancellations made 120-days prior to the expedition start date.
  • 50% refunds, less the non refundable registration fee, will be provided for cancellations made 90-119 days prior to the expedition start date.
  • No refunds will be provided for cancellations made 89-days prior to the expedition start date.
  • Alpine Ascents International will attempt to accommodate changes and cancellations when necessary, waiving certain fees when feasible.
  • All cancellation/refund requests must be made in writing and be received in our office within the deadlines stated above.

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.

When I compare Alpine Ascents International with other guided groups I see in the mountains, I always feel like I’m using the best guide service.  Never have had a doubt about that.
