In case of cancellation, we must be informed in writing immediately. We should be informed at least a month prior to the trip departure date. There will be no refunds for the cancellation made before 30 days of the trip.
The total number of jumps in a day is subjected to weather and the regulatory provision. If in case the jump over Amadablam cannot be held, it will be transferred to Syangbhoche since Everest skydive is deemed as complete only in 3 jumps. In case of incomplete jump, the amount will be transferred to the future events (any activities like trekking, tour, etc)
Due to the unusual nature of the trip and extra formalities, the operation might be closed in one of those worst case scenarios however, it will be confirmed one month earlier before the trip. In case of cancellation or postponement, there will be either full refund or amount transferred to the other events in future.
