In signing this booking form I also acknowledge and confirm the following:
To: Mega Treks & Expedition and its various land management authorities who grant the license to operate this trip being the Licensor
I am aware that your trekking/expedition involve going to high-altitude and carry an inherent risk of altitude illness. Similarly, most of our trips visit remote locations or poorly developed regions where infrastructure is limited. In such places, the risks to health are increased and the ability to treat injury or illness effectively is reduced. Additionally, climbing and mountaineering, which includes treks that cross glaciated terrain or snow-bound passes, are hazardous activities with a risk of serious injury or death. By signing these booking conditions I acknowledge these hazards and your acceptance of the associated risks.
Neither The Company nor any of its representatives will be responsible for any illness, injury or death sustained on our expeditions/trekking, nor will they be liable for any uninsured loss of personal property.
I confirm that I am over the age of 18 years and that I have read and understood the terms and conditions of this contract and this agreement prior to signing it and I agree that this agreement will be binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators and successors.
