Still Water Travel


Pricing

Sign up for this journey

Still Water pricing is considered all-inclusive.

That means that you won't find any hidden charges for internal domestic flights, park entrance fees, travel permits and other "extras" sometimes found on standard tourist tours.

Our philosophy is that you shouldn't be charged extra for something that is an integral part of a travel program.

 

Himalayan Explorer
Trip Dates Charter journeys available for September - October
(16 days) Includes day of departure and return.

Land Only

$2,850 USD  (12 travelers maximum)

(Based on double occupancy) This is an all-inclusive price.
Make sure when comparing prices, that you don't get stuck with 'extras' that are a necessary part of the itinerary. Many companies charge extra for integral parts of the travel program such as internal charter flights, park entrance fees and domestic flights. With Still Water Travel, we include ALL necessary parts of the itinerary in our pricing to make your travel experience hassle free and honest.

Payment and Cancellation Policies

Payments
To reserve space on a trip, a deposit is needed. Half the balance is due 90 days prior to departure.  The remaining balance is due 60 days prior to departure.

Cancellations

If you cancel your reservation before departure for any reason, your deposit is non-refundable. The following cancellation schedule outlines cancellation fees for all balances paid not including deposit. (computed as of date of our actual receipt of written cancellation notice):

Days before Departure

More than 90 days $0.00 (minus deposit )
61-90 days $500.00 in addition to deposit
31-60 days 50% of land cost & unrecoverable air

Departure is defined as the date of the first flight from the continental 48 states, or the trip departure date as indicated on our Trip Schedule, whichever comes first. Cancellation and determination of cancellation fee is effective on the date of receipt of your written notification. In addition, you are responsible for all airfare and transit accommodation cancellation penalties, which are not included above. Payments due at the time of cancellation remain the responsibility of the client.

Participants are responsible for being in sufficiently good health and condition to undertake the trip. Once a trip has started, refunds will not be made for missed arrangements for any reason whatsoever. We highly recommend trip cancellation insurance.

Canceled Trips
Still Water Travel reserves the right to cancel any trip prior to departure for any reason whatsoever, including insufficient sign-up or logistical problems that will impede trip operations. The refund of all payments received shall release Still Water Travel from any further liability should we cancel a trip due to circumstances within our control. Still Water Travel is not responsible for non recoverable expenses incurred by trip members in preparing for a canceled trip, such as non-refundable advance purchase air tickets, visa fees, equipment, etc., nor for any necessary additional arrangements should the applicant have embarked prior to the group's departure date.

We highly recommend that you purchase trip cancellation insurance that covers the full land and air cost of your trip.
  If we are forced to cancel the trip for reasons within our control, you will be entitled to a full refund of all payments made toward the trip.  The low cost Travel Insurance is meant to protect you for covered reasons in case you must cancel your participation in the trip or if Still Water Travel is forced to cancel the trip due to circumstances beyond our control. Any cancellation on your behalf during the trip will not be entitled to any refund of payments made.

Items not included in trip costs:
Medical expenses, costs of hospitalization or evacuation from remote areas; laundry; airport departure taxes not included on your ticket; accommodations en route to base cities; visas; airfares; gratuities and insurance. If a trip must be extended or an itinerary modified due to weather, road conditions, lack of transportation, political or civil disputes, medical emergency or other causes beyond our control, all associated costs including any non recoverable costs are not included in the trip rates or refunds. You must obtain trip cancellation insurance to cover these costs.

Limitations of liability
In many cases, suppliers of tour services are independent contractors to Still Water Travel, not its employees. For example, we use independent ground operators, tour guides, hotels, transportation companies, drivers, airlines, and other suppliers. Because we do not own, operate, manage, control, or supervise these entities, we cannot be liable for any acts or omissions, including any negligence, gross negligence, or reckless or willful acts, on their part. Still Water Travel, its owners, agents, and employees assume no responsibility for any injury, loss, damage, delay, or death to person or property arising from the negligent or willful act or failure to act of any person who is to or does provide goods or services for this trip or for the action or inaction of any other third party. Without limitation, Still Water Travel is not responsible for acts of God, equipment failures, vehicle accidents, illness from food or otherwise, detention, assaults, theft or criminal activity, annoyance, delays, quarantine, strikes, failure of any means of conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled, civil disturbances, terrorism, government restrictions or regulations, and discrepancies or changes in transit or hotel services over which it has no control. Reasonable changes in the itinerary may be made where deemed advisable for the comfort and well being of the passengers. The right is reserved to substitute hotels, alter the itinerary, and reverse the order of places to be visited. You will be informed of any necessary changes in a timely fashion.

On advancement of deposit to Still Water Travel, the depositor therefore agrees to be bound by the above recited terms and conditions.
