However, your personal expenses like shopping/tip etc. are not included in the package cost.

We know that tourists do not cancel their trips willingly. They do so out of compulsion. As confirmation of a booking takes a lot of efforts of the staff and also hotels charges cancellation fees for termination of the booking, check out our cancellation and refund policy:
Yes, reservations are required for guaranteed spots on all the tours. Unlike other tourist destinations, the conditions are different in Ladakh.
The advance reservation encourages us to book hotels/camps/taxis/inner line permits and other services for you in advance.
On spot booking in the desired property becomes difficult for us due to many technical reasons like limited connectivity, tourist rush, high demand of the same hotel, etc.
If we are convinced, we can confirm your booking by accepting a nominal token amount.
However, we always prefer taking the majority of amount after our guests arrive in Ladakh and after they are assured about their booking confirmation.
As we always say weather in Ladakh is unpredictable. Your sightseeing tours will continue in all weather conditions as staying at hotel for a day means you have one less day to cover remaining places.
Still, if we feel that travelling is unsafe due to extreme weather conditions like heavy snowfall, icy conditions, landslides or flash floods, we may have to cancel/postpone the travel (whichever is the best option).
Sometime snowfall and landslide block the road mostly near Khardungla pass and Changla pass. In that condition, we are helpless as nobody is beyond nature.
If your travel is safe during bad weather, it’s ok to go for an adventure.
The cold deserts of Ladakh witness extreme cold in winter months (November to March), moderate cold in October and April and pleasant weather from May to September.
