(1) Booking Inquiry 

(1.1) Our website shows all the details about trips and treks. Even so, we encourage you to send a Booking Inquiry with the general information of your group and tour schedule. We will then plan an Itinerary as per your need and send you a payment invoice, or you can pay via the website. 


The booking of all trips can be done through the Himalayan Masters website or links provided to you in the email. Reservation is only confirmed after you pay 20% of the total cost as an advance deposit. The cost mentioned might change as per season, itinerary, group size, and accommodation option, so we highly encourage you to enquire about the charges by email before you make the payment. Other remaining instalments should be paid at least 15 days before the beginning of the trip.  

(1.2.1) Form of Payments: 

( Advance deposits at the time of booking and all other instalments can be paid via the Himalayan website with your credit card. A personal check to Himalayan Bank Limited, Himalayan Masters, is also accepted. You can use a credit card, visa card, or Master card to deposit the amount. 

Note: For credit card payments, a 3.5% extra will be levied to you as a credit card processing fee by the bank.

Once the payment is received, we send you a “Confirmation email” to fill in all other necessary information. Once you get the confirmation email, the contract between the travel party and Himalayan Masters exists.

( Once the booking is made, you can send your requirements and amendments by email ([email protected]) or our WhatsApp number (+977-9823636377). We will contact you via these means, and you are obliged to reply to our enquiry within three days so that we can organise everything in the trek smoothly.

You can edit travellers’ details within 24 hours of the booking confirmation. Himalayan Masters should approve any changes after that. 

(1.3.1) Early bookings

Any bookings confirmed 30 days before the trip date are categorised as Early bookings. Early bookings are custom-made to fit your custom dates, hotel requirements, transportation requirements and more. These early bookings are flexible and well-planned. We highly recommend travellers make enquiries at least 45 days before the trip and do the booking confirmation at least 30 days before the trip. 


Bookings confirmed 30 days before the arrival date are considered last-minute bookings. Late bookings may be charged with an extra fee that occurred from the last hour rush booking. Last-minute bookings might lead to us asking for full payment in advance. 

Note: When you make late bookings, do not book any flights or activity in Nepal until we confirm your tour and send a detailed trip plan. Many external factors might lead to delay or cancellation of last-minute bookings, so we request that you do other processes only after you get our email.
