DOSSIER: To 'Summit up!' the mountains of Nepal
Important ‘Red Tape’ points & information
This is the team who will do our utmost to ensure you have the best possible visit. We believe Nepal to be ‘The Country of Choice’ and Himalayan Encounters to be ‘The Company of Choice’. We love this country and want to see Nepal prosper.
The Company’s origins date from 1963 when Tony Jones first came overland. From this grew a UK-based company called Encounter Overland, out of which was created a Nepal entity; Himalayan Encounters – often known simply as H.E.
H.E. has been totally independent since 1994. Tony still retains an active interest and yet the lion’s share is where it should now be – with dynamic Nepalese.
So let's 'summit up'!
Cost and Payment: (might as well speak of this first!)
Cost for summiting up the Nepal's Mountains:
Each activity and service has been competitively costed. The cost of each activity is clearly shown in the appropriate Dossier. The price is quoted in three currencies: US Dollars, £ Sterling and € Euros. It is not practical to correlate exactly these three currencies and it is for you to decide in which one currency you choose to pay. (For a guide on currency exchange rates try www.xe.com)
Payment:We will accept advance payment in full. However we find that it is usually best to simply pay a single deposit then your balance payment when you reach Nepal and before the departure date of your tour. (See Terms & Conditions, page 6 of this Dossier.) This simple system of a deposit payment a) demonstrates your intent, b) confirms your place, c) commits us to the agreed price, d) allows you flexibility and e) largely protects you from any perceived exposure to financial loss.
