Acknowledgment - Travel, Trekking, Mountaineering, Peak climbing, cycling, Rafting and took any other activities & Safety (where applicable)

I acknowledge that there are numerous risks involved in traveling abroad. Traveling at high altitudes, high Passes physical exertion required of Activities and Trekking and living in extreme or uncomfortable situations can aggravate pre-existing physical injuries, conditions, or symptoms. Instruction as to the proper management of health and safety while traveling abroad and at high altitudes is available from Adventure Trans Himalayan Treks & Expeditions staff, Nepali teams and organizers. While traveling or hiking there are risks to be encountered which you should be aware of.

Adventure Trans Himalayan Treks & Expeditions has selected the best transport possible, this being the case, local transport/domestic flights will often not be up to developed country standards. The roads are rough and sometimes non-existent. Driving standards are very different than Western/European standards, but vehicles travel at much lower speeds. Injury from bumpy roads are rare, but possible. Whenever possible Adventure Trans Himalayan Treks & Expeditions minimizes these risks by taking domestic flights. Domestic flights have risks and are often delayed due to bad weather.

While hiking you may traverse rugged terrain: high mountain passes, snow and ice, exposed and rough trails, routes threatened by avalanches and landslides and crossing streams and rivers by rough bridges or slippery rocks. There are risks of falling, rock fall, landslides, collapsing bridges and exposure. There are also potentially dangerous animals, dangerous plants, and dangerous insects. Any wild and domestic animal that you may encounter can be dangerous, including the yaks, monkeys, dogs, and horses that carry your bags on some journeys.

Water should buy a mineral water bottle or be purified, filtered or treated before drinking. This includes ALL tap water in cities, towns and villages, and all stream water. Cleaning your hands before eating and after toilet functions is critical in maintaining good health, as is using hand sanitizer.

Altitude sickness (Acute Mountain Sickness: AMS) is a significant risk. Altitude sickness occurs when your body cannot properly adapt to the lower amounts of oxygen found in the air at high and extreme altitudes. Acclimatization is the process by which the body adapts. Many people suffer some form of mild altitude sickness and most people can acclimatize to high altitudes, but not everyone. The key is to ascend slowly, over a period of days, not to exert yourself, and to drink plenty of water. Altitude sickness can develop into High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), which can be fatal if not treated quickly. Treatment is rapid descent to a lower altitude. Let your facilitator Trip leader and guides know if you have a bad headache, feel dizzy or feel anything out of the ordinary. Failure to do so may result in AMS or other sickness.

I understand that if I want or need to ride a horse, for medical or sightseeing purposes, it is entirely at my own risk, and Adventure Trans Himalayan Treks & Expeditions bears no responsibility for any activity related to horseback riding.

Western,  European -standard hospital care is often not available. While hiking, trekking, Mountaineering and traveling you may be several hours to several weeks from any medical facility. Everyone is required to have their own travel medical insurance including rapid airlifting. Decisions made by the leader/Guide and participants (team members/clients) in a wilderness setting are based on a variety of factors, perceptions, and evaluations which by their nature are imprecise and subject to errors in judgment. Throughout the tour participants are responsible for their own safety and must show consideration for the safety of other members of their group.

This list is not an exhaustive list of possible injuries or accidents that may occur while traveling, hiking, trekking or mountaineering Peak climbing. Most of these injuries are rare and you are not likely to encounter them, however, they may occur and you must be aware of the risks.

I understand that trekking includes physical movements in adventure trips including, but is not limited, As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, or death is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. My signature acknowledges that I understand trekking is a personal practice that exposes me to the possible risk of personal injury - physical, mental or emotional. If I experience any pain or discomfort, I will listen to my body, adjust the posture and ask for support from the leader/Guide. If I feel overexertion or fatigue, I will respect my body’s limitations and I will rest before continuing walking. I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to inform the Leader/guide of any prior injuries, illnesses or health problems. I realize that the treatment is being given for the well-being of my body, mind and spirit. I understand that the leader/guide does not diagnose illness, disease or any physical or mental disorder, nor do they prescribe medical treatment. It is recommended that I see my primary health care provider for exams, diagnosis and treatments. I acknowledge that yoga retreats and therapeutic treatments are complimentary to any medical care. Certain suggestions and healing techniques are not recommended and are not safe under certain medical conditions. I affirm that I alone am responsible to decide whether to continue. I hereby agree to irrevocably release and waive any claims that I have now or hereafter may have against Adventure Trans Himalayan owners, staff, and Drivers. contractors, leaders/guides or any other employees.

If I am pregnant, become pregnant or am post-natal, my signature verifies that I am participating in traveling and trekking with my doctor’s full approval. I realize that I am participating in all activities at my own risk.

My signature further acknowledges that there are inherent risks associated with being in a remote trekking travel setting. I acknowledge that because of remote locations, access to advanced medical care may be significantly delayed. I acknowledge that it is my choice to participate in any trekking travel or group activity during a trip and I participate at my own risk. Additionally, I realize that I might be exposed to environmental risks and hazards including wildfires, uneven land, fast river currents and dangerous wildlife on a  Trekking trip.
