AUTHORITY ON TOUR
At all times the decision of the company’s guide or representative will be final on all matters likely to endanger the safety and well being of the tour group. The client must at all times strictly comply with the laws, customs and drug regulations of Jammu and Kashmir State. Should the client fail to comply with the above, or should the client interfere with the well being of the group then the guide or company representative may order the client to leave the tour without recourse to any refund.
FACTORS OUTSIDE THE KT’S CONTROL
Kashmir Treks will do its best to minimize the effects of matters outside its control, but cannot accept any liability or additional associated costs, either directly or indirectly, for these matters which include political disputes, unforeseeable climate, road blocks, landslides on the treks or closure of the treks due to heavy snowfall on the mountain passes. If all or part of any trek is closed due to snowfall then KashmirTreks will do its best to provide an alternative trek itinerary. Unfortunately the trek deposit and balance (if paid) will not be refunded to clients if the trek is cancelled due to heavy snowfall and / or the client decides not to participate in an alternative trek although KT will provide clients with suitable documentation so that clients can claim a refund from their insurance companies.
Due to political and cultural differences, as well as generally tougher physical conditions, travel to the areas we visit involves risks other than those we take in our daily lives. It is important clients make themselves aware of the risks involved, and are responsible for making their travel plans accordingly.
KT shall not be liable for any damage or loss if the failure to carry out the contract is: 1) attributable to the client 2) attributable to a third party unconnected with the provision of the services contracted for and the event is unforeseeable or unavoidable 3) due to unforeseen and unusual circumstances beyond the company’s control, the consequences of which could not have been avoided even if all due care had to be exercised. 4) due to political disputes, climate or other matters of a similar nature. 5) due to an event which the company, even with all due care could not foresee or forestall. Any liability is limited to the full price paid for the tour. In all cases the company specifically excludes all liability for indirect or consequential loss or expense, including loss of profits.
