Dolpo 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 nonrefundable registration fee, will be provided for cancellations made 120-days prior to the expedition start date.
  • 50% refunds, less the nonrefundable 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.

So for me…high marks in all departments. As I told Vern and Carole, my vacation time is extremely limited and precious, and I feel like Alpine Ascents gave me an absolutely fantastic experience on all levels.

    Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
