The following terms and conditions apply to all trips operated by Social Journeys:

Trip Confirmation and payment:
To confirm your participation, we require the non-refundable deposit of US$ 300 per person 60 days before the trip starting date and full payment is to be made up on arrival in Kathmandu. Final trip documentation will be released upon full trip payment. Deposit can be wired to our bank account. Bank service charge should be paid by the travellers themselves at the time of deposit

You can make the final payment in cash (USD, Euro or any other convertible currencies) or Travelers cheque once you arrive in Kathmandu. We also accept credit cards but we discourage it because this incurs an additional surcharge by the bank.
