- What Your Trip Includes and Does Not Include
Details of the items included or not included in the price are stated on the trip itinerary on our website.

6.a If You Cancel Your trip
You, or any member of your party, may cancel your travel arrangements at any time. If you cancel a trip after making a booking you will lose some or all of the money you have paid for the trip, even if the circumstances are beyond your control. A cancellation will only be effective when we receive written confirmation by letter or email of the cancellation. Cancellation charges as shown below will be applicable.

It is strongly recommended that you obtain insurance that includes cover under certain circumstances against the loss of deposit or cancellation charges.

Additionally, you will remain responsible for the full amount of your insurance premium and this will not be refunded in the event of your cancellation. You may however be able to transfer this cover to another trip. If you leave a trip for any reason after it has commenced we are not obliged to make any refunds for unused services.
6.b LIFETIME DEPOSITS - If you cancel your booking, and that cancellation is not a result of nonpayment or any other breach of these Terms, the deposit amount will be held as a “Lifetime Deposit” subject to these Terms. Lifetime Deposits have no expiry with Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited and may be applied towards payment of a deposit on any other trek of expedition with us. The lifetime deposit is transferable and may be transferred by you to another trip of your choosing by providing notice to us in writing or email.

Only one Lifetime Deposit may be applied per person per product booked. A Lifetime Deposit must be applied to a new trek or expedition that is of equal or greater value to the cancelled trip for which the Lifetime Deposit was originally received. A Lifetime Deposit may not be applied to the same or similar dates of travel.
- Minor Changes in Itinerary Before the Start of the Tour
In the types of trips that Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited provide, arrangements and participants have to be flexible. Itineraries given for each trip must therefore be taken as an indication of what each group should accomplish, and not as a contractual obligation on our part. It is a necessary condition of you joining any of our tours that you accept this flexibility. It is unlikely that we will have to make any changes to your travel arrangements, but we plan the arrangements many months in advance. Occasionally, we may have to make changes and we reserve the right to do so at any time. Most of these changes will be minor and we will notify you or your travel agent of them as soon as reasonably possible. In the case of such changes there is no entitlement to cancel without penalty and you will be subject to the cancellation charges listed in clause 6.a Examples of minor changes include change of accommodation to another of the same standard, using slightly different modes of transport or completing the activities in a different order to the itinerary.
- Major Changes to Your trip Before Start of Tour
If we have to make a major change to your trip such as changing the locality of your trek due to adverse weather or a change resulting in a significant inconvenience with regard to your trip, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your trip commences. When a major change occurs, you will have the choice of either accepting the change, or accepting a replacement tour from us of equivalent or similar standard and price.
When a major change or cancellation occurs due to force majeure we will do our best to provide a suitable alternative, this may be at an alternative location and date. It may not always be possible to offer you an alternative and in this case the terms of force majeure apply - see section 5.
If we have to cancel a trip due to force majeure 91 days or more before your trip you will lose your deposit. If we have to cancel a trip due to force majeure between 1 and 90 days before your trip you will lose 50% of the trip cost.
We reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel your travel arrangements. However, in no circumstances will we cancel your tour less than 30 days before the scheduled start date except for reasons of late cancellations from other persons on your tour, force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance or obtain adequate insurance cover. We cannot be held responsible for any non-refundable costs you incur through booking your own flights or otherwise should we be forced to cancel your trip.
If we are forced to cancel your tour we will offer you compensation as per below unless it is due to force majeure or failure by you to pay the final balance or obtain adequate insurance cover.
Period before tour start date within which notice of cancellation or major change is notified to you / Compensation per person:-
More than 30 days Nil
30-14 Days £20
13-0 Days £30
- Changes in Itinerary After the Start of the Tour
We reserve the right to change an itinerary after the trip commences due to local circumstances or events outside of our control or anything amounting to force majeure. In such emergency circumstances you will pay for the additional cost of any necessary itinerary alterations. If due to force majeure or any other circumstance beyond our or our suppliers’ control we have to cut short your trip no refund or compensation will be made for any unused hotel accommodation, hire equipment, or any other unused service or feature of the trip.
- Adventure Travel
This is adventure travel, and many of Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited destinations are in remote areas, within developing countries. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that we are used to in the developed world. Road transport can be uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not meet the standards of for example, Europe or North America. We will not be liable where any failure in the performance of the contract is due to you or a third party unconnected with the provision of the travel arrangements.
Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited takes every precaution to ensure the safety of all participants. However, by undertaking a trip with Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited, you are assuming the risk of any injury, including death. Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited and/or its employees, agents, subcontractors, suppliers and their employees cannot be held responsible for any injury caused to you, or by you to others, resulting from your failure to follow an instruction(s) or recommendation(s). It is your contractual obligation to Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited to at all times act in a safe, responsible and courteous manner, comply with all safety procedures, listen and be present at all safety and information briefings; to immediately inform your guide / tour leader or any other person responsible for the provision of your activities of any equipment or site deficiencies or any other concerns relevant to the safety of you as an individual or the group as a whole; and to dress and/or equip yourself suitably for any event or activity as advised by your trip leader or any other individual responsible for the provision of your activities.
Our liability except in cases involving death, injury or illness, shall be limited to the cost of your travel arrangements. Your booking is accepted on the understanding that you realise the hazards involved in this type of trip, including death, injury, disease, loss or damage to property, inconvenience and discomfort. Our obligations, and those of our suppliers providing any service or activity included in your trip, are to use reasonable skill and take reasonable care when providing such services and activities. You must demonstrate that reasonable skill and care has not been used if you wish to make any claim against us. The services and activities included in your trip will be considered provided with reasonable skill and care if they comply with any local regulations that apply, or, if there are no applicable local regulations they are reasonable when compared to the local standards and accepted customs. We will not be liable for any loss of profit, or loss of business, or any form of consequential loss or damage, whether or not arising as a result of physical damage to property and/or person and regardless of the cause and nature of such loss or damage.
Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited liability will also be limited in accordance with and/or in an identical manner to any relevant International Convention (for example, the Geneva Convention in respect of carriage by road, the Montreal Convention in respect of travel by air, the Athens Convention in respect of travel by sea, the Berne Convention in respect of travel by rail and the Paris Convention in respect of the provision of accommodation) which limit the amount of compensation that you can claim for death, injury, delay to passengers and loss, damage and delay to luggage. For the avoidance of doubt, this means that we are to be regarded as having all benefit of any limitations of compensation contained in any of these Conventions or any other international conventions applicable to your trip. Where public transport (including taxis) is used we cannot be held responsible or liable for its standards or any damages, loss, injury, or death incurred during the use of such transport.
Occasionally our local suppliers may need you to sign an ‘Acceptance of Risk’ form prior to accepting your participation for an activity or service. The purpose of the form is to indemnify the supplier and Bucket List Adventure Travel from any claims made by you for incidents arising due to circumstances outside the supplier and Bucket List Adventure Travel reasonable control.
On all of the tours we operate, we at times stay in very primitive accommodations that are built to no known standards. It is part of the fun of this type of travel but it does come with risk. We do however try to inspect accommodation beforehand and we look to stay in nice homely places with character that are of a good standard compared to what is available locally. For example, in some circumstances we stay in village homes where the people have built the houses themselves. You need to accept the fact that there may be defects with the structure of the buildings we stay in, for example uneven floors, cracks in windows, no fire extinguishers, and electrical fittings that are not fitted to UK standards. Travel in any underdeveloped nation requires you to be more aware and cautious of your surroundings. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself with the general layout of accommodation so as to become aware of any specific risks or lack of safety features.
There will be wildlife, domesticated and wild animals in all of the areas we visit that can attack without warning. Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited or any of its employees or suppliers cannot be held responsible for any injury or death that occurs from you being attacked by any wildlife, domesticated or wild animal, you must accept the risks of injury or death from wildlife or animal attacks.
- Optional Activities
Optional activities (marked as ‘optional activities’) on your itinerary or any activity not included in the price of your trip do not form part of your trip supplied by Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited. For any optional activity or other service that you book, your contract will be with the operator of the activity or service and not with us, and the decision to partake in any such activity is entirely at your own discretion and risk. If you do have any complaint or problem with any optional activity purchased, your claim should be directed to the activity provider and not to us.
You accept that any assistance given by your tour leader or local representative in arranging optional activities will not render Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited or its employee(s) liable.
- Links to Other Websites
We have placed links to external sites on our website that we think you may find interesting, but neither Bucket List Adventure Travel nor any of its employees or agents shall have any responsibility or liability of any nature whatsoever for these sites or any information contained in them. None of these sites have been verified or endorsed by Bucket List Adventure Travel. The link does not apply an association with our site.
- Errors & Omissions
Although we have made every effort to verify the accuracy of statements made in our trip documentation including brochure(s), website and trip notes we cannot be held responsible for any error, omission or unintentional misrepresentation that may occur.

The information may also be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. We work in compliance with the Data Protection Act.
We will not pass information on to anybody who isn’t responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, dietary or religious requirements. If you have any sensitive information, you can discuss with one of our staff in privacy and they will make sure that any specific requirements or health concerns are dealt with on a strict need to know basis. We ensure that proper measures are in place to protect your information.
- If You Transfer to Another trip
If after our booking confirmation has been issued, you wish to transfer to another trip, we will try to arrange this but it may not always be possible. Any such request must be made in writing from the person who made the booking. You will be asked to pay an administration charge of £50 plus any further costs we incur in making this alteration. You should contact us as soon as possible as costs will increase closer to the date of departure. You cannot transfer your trip less than 60 days prior to departure.
- Tour Leader Authority
By completing a booking online on our website, over the phone or in person you accept these Terms and Conditions and you agree to abide by the authority of the tour leader, who represents Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited. The decision of the tour leader as to the conduct, itinerary and objectives of the tour is final. If, in the opinion of the tour leader, your behaviour or physical condition is putting the wellbeing of other people at risk, or if the tour leader considers your general wellbeing to be at risk by continuing the tour, or if you are caught breaking the local law, you may be asked to leave the tour without the right to any refund for unused services the person(s) concerned will be required to leave the accommodation and we will have no further responsibility to them including any return travel arrangements. No refunds will be made and we will not pay any expenses or costs incurred as a result of the termination. Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited clients must only use the accommodation that we provide for you. You are not permitted to let anyone else stay in your room. You are responsible for the cost of any damage caused to your accommodation, its contents and any other item you damage or lose whilst on one of our trips. These charges must be met by you and have to be paid locally. You accept that you may not participate in part of the itinerary if you are late for an activity or part of your travel arrangements. If you miss a transport connection you will be responsible for catching up with the group and all costs associated with rejoining the group. You must not do anything or fail to do anything that is reasonably likely to bring Bucket List Adventure Travel into disrepute.
- Our Responsibility
Our responsibility to you does not commence until the start date of your tour and you have arrived at the starting point of the tour as stated on the trip itinerary. The starting point of a Bucket List Adventure Travel tour is normally the airport in the country that your tour commences. We offer complimentary airport to hotel and hotel to airport transfers on all our trips. When you book a flight let us know by adding your flight details to the relevant area in the EverTrekkers Member Hub and we will meet you at the airport at the stated arrival time of that aircraft. Please note you can arrive in the country of your tour before the start date and also depart after the finish date and we can arrange accommodation for you but it will be at your cost. Please note there may be no Bucket List Adventure Travel representative available to meet you and we will have no responsibility to you outside the official publicised dates of the tour unless agreed otherwise. You are responsible for arranging your own flight or transport to arrive at the starting point of a Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited tour although we do provide recommendations if required. Under no circumstances can Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited be responsible for you missing the start of a tour. We will not refund any money to you, pay you any compensation or pay for any transport arrangements for you to catch up with the tour group if you do not arrive at the starting point on time, nor will we pay for any accommodation or other expenses that you incur. You will not receive any money back for activities that you missed. However, we have an in-country agent that will assist you in every way possible (transport, accommodation etc) to catch up with the tour group at your expense.
You will be given emergency telephone numbers of all representatives of Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited and be given a list of times and places the tour group will be present, in order to catch up with the group. If your arrival flight is delayed but it will still arrive on the same day we will still come to the airport to collect you. If it is delayed and will not arrive until the next day we will try to supply you with a pickup if the group itinerary and staffing levels allow it. If the group has moved to the next destination on the itinerary or we do not have the available staff to pick you up you will be responsible for catching up with the group. You will be given all the details of contacts for emergencies or meeting points in case you ever need to catch up with the group. If the airline you travel with loses your baggage you need to report it immediately at the airport. Under no circumstances can the start of the tour be delayed or disrupted in any way waiting for your baggage. Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited cannot be held liable for any problem that arises from the loss of your luggage. We therefore recommend that you keep all your valuables and essential kit in your hand luggage and wear any important clothing on the airplane. We are not responsible for any of your belongings and we will not accept responsibility for them if they are lost, stolen or damaged at any point on your trip however so incurred.
If you are unable, or choose not to complete part of your itinerary Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited is not liable to supply alternative itineraries, excursions, accommodations, services or staff for the period when you are not present with the group or refund any monies. If you do not take part in the group activities or itinerary or if you wander off on your own we will not have any responsibility for you whatsoever.
If the tour leader is delayed to the local joining point we will provide you with the same room and board basis as stated in your itinerary. If the delay is for more than 24 hours we will provide you with the same services and itinerary that were detailed on your itinerary to enable you to continue with your trip, although you may, at your discretion, remain at the local joining point for the arrival of the tour leader.
For expeditions where passengers have a domestic flight as part of the package this will be paid for by Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited. However if it is a Domestic or international flight that is part of the expedition route and not the package, we reserve your place on the plane and you then need to pay for the flight locally. Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited do not sell flights and therefore we will not be responsible for any losses, inconveniences, injuries, death, delays or any other problem that result from a flight you take or a plane ticket you buy. You must also be aware that standards of internal flights in countries we visit may not be of the same standard you would expect in Europe or North America.
Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited will not be held liable nor accept any responsibility for any injury, death or problem that occurs while you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. We have a zero tolerance policy towards drugs.
- Passport, Visas, Travel
You must carry a valid passport and have obtained all of the appropriate visas, for the countries that you will visit during your trip. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the duration of the trip. The lead name is entirely responsible for ensuring that all members of the group have the correct and valid documentation for travel. Clients travelling overland to certain destinations may need to also pass through controls of other countries en-route so this should be allowed for with any passport/visa applications. There are restrictions on the amount of times you can enter certain countries in a year and also restrictions to certain nationalities. Your behaviour at a border can also stop you from entering a country. In some cases countries will refuse entry to clients who have criminal records, please check with the embassy or consulate of the countries that you are visiting. Bucket List Adventure Travel will not be held liable, nor can we assist you if you have been rejected entry to a country for any reason.

- Travel and Cancellation Insurance
It is a condition of us accepting your booking that you agree you will have obtained travel insurance for your trip before your trip commences. You are strongly advised to insure yourself against any possible risk that may occur. You are required to carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested by Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited employees or suppliers. Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited will not be liable for any loss or inconvenience due to an inappropriate policy. It is your responsibility to check the terms and conditions of any insurance policy whether purchased from our recommended insurer or another provider.
Your insurance must include cover for; medical expenses, injury, death, cost of repatriation and evacuation via whatever means necessary including by helicopter or air ambulance. If, in the event of an emergency you need medical rescue, hospital treatment, repatriation or evacuation from a trip either by foot, helicopter or otherwise and your insurance company will not pay these costs the responsibility for the payment of such costs will lie with you. Any subsequent costs incurred such as hotels, food, transport etc shall be your responsibility. If you make your own insurance arrangements you must ensure that there are no exclusion clauses which limit cover for the type of activities included, or the altitudes attained in your tour.
Your travel insurance provider must agree beforehand to meet the costs of any search, rescue or recovery, for medical reasons, of you to the nearest appropriate medical facility even if prior authorization from the insurer may not be possible due to the remoteness of the recovery area or because medical expediency demands your recovery before such authorization could be received. In case of a suspected or confirmed emergency involving you or the group of which you are a member, Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited reserves the right to arrange (or to make arrangements for your insurers to arrange) search, rescue and recovery, as deemed appropriate and reasonable.
We reserve the right to cancel your booking without refund at any time before departure if we are not satisfied that adequate insurance has been organised for you. All baggage and personal effects are at all times at your own risk. We will not be responsible for any loss, damage or accident to any luggage and property, howsoever incurred. You are advised to check the limitations of your insurance policy in this respect.
Bucket List Adventure Travel Limited cannot be held responsible for you missing your departure flight or onward travel arrangements under any circumstances. Adventure travel in the countries we visit has unavoidable risks; vehicles/trains can break down and flights can be cancelled for days at a time, roads can be blocked etc. Bucket List Adventure Travel will do our very best to try to make sure that you will make your transport connections and our itineraries are formed in a way that minimizes the risks. We strongly advise you to have travel insurance that covers a missed flight or onward journey. You must upload a scanned image of your insurance policy into the EverTrekkers Members Hub that shows your policy number, insurer name and emergency assistance telephone numbers prior to your departure. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are adequately insured, as we will not check your policy.

We Love Our
Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say
We happened to be stuck in Nepal for an additional 10 days due to the country going into lockdown and Evertrek worked tirelessly every single day to ensure not only were we in the loop with what was going on but also just to make sure we were comfortable, happy and OK!
They don't feel like your typical corporate company, the entire team is super friendly and make you feel like pals! Something quite important to me and they showed in every single way is that they truly care for all their staff, as soon as the Sherpas and guides lost pretty much all work for this season they set up a justgiving page to help support their families! They doing everything with love and care both for their customers and their team!!
Ok, I could go on! Bottom line is, if you are looking for some trekking adventures, look no further. Just go and book it, you will not regret it!
Thank you for reminding me why I love travelling and trekking so much, now you have awoken it I have lots of planning to do for 2021 hehe!! ❤️
They were fantastic and went out their way to support me when I was stuck in Nepal due to the Coronavirus lockdown
I would highly recommend this company to any trekkers looking for a travel company.
I will definitely be using this company again in the future.
Nothing was to much for the guys in the UK or Kathmandu, if you are thinking about this trip there is only one company to consider EVERTREK 110%
It's only taken 30 years to to finally realize this dream!
The contact has been brilliant with the EverTrek team!
Now to get into training!
Having little things like filtered water and meals included in the cost (I saw another group having to queue to pay for breakfast) might seem trivial but it meant we didn't have to worry about running out of money on the trek - and they treat their guides and sherpas (who were top class and couldn't do enough for you) with consideration and respect.
I always felt well looked after throughout my time in Nepal, and they put a great deal of effort into ensuring that the holiday went smoothly such as rearranging flights, and adapted to any issues that arose.
Evertrek made it a great holiday. I met some fun people, have some great memories and lots of photos! You even get a free bag, medal and certificate!
team, guides, sherpas, porters and yak men in Nepal I cant fault Evertrek. If you are thinking about a trip just do it. You wont regret it. And you wont regret choosing Evertrek either. I'm already looking at other trips and not even home yet!
I’ve just returned from a fantastic training weekend with them in the Brecon Beacons. It was wet and windy but Evertrek didn’t disappoint, . From start to finish, the experience was great. Both Andy( the owner) and his trusty sidekick Dave (the painted Yeti) were there to make us feel welcome. They were both hands on, and their knowledge was second to none.
I can’t wait to actually go to Everest, and after this weekend I feel assured that I’ll be in great hands.
Nothing was too much trouble, and it was great see the way that Andy and Dave talk about Everest with such a passion.
Well done guys
Our guide in Nepal, Bhim and his team, were absolutely fantastic, they worked unbelievably hard, you never wanted for anything. (Watch them, they cheat at cards!!haha)
As for the trek, the negotiations of getting to Lukla were a bit up in the air...but that's just Nepal! Go with the flow. But once we got there, it was absolutely brilliant, everyday the scenery was beautiful and I never felt like they expected to much from you. Plenty of rest time and tea stops! I personally really enjoyed the food (I lived on veggi curry and rice-you get seconds :D) and thought all the accommodation was fine!!
Basically an all round incredible trip, there wasn't a second I didn't enjoy!!! Highly recommend Andy and the team. Would defo do another trek with them 😀
Many thanks to everyone at EverTrek, especially Andy - from start to finish the organisation was par excellence. Special thanks to Rishi our guide and my trekking companions who put the icing on the cake to make one of my dreams come true.
We made some great connections, enjoyed the socialising (you earn it!) and came away even more excited to be getting on the plane to Nepal. Hopefully there will be more such events to enjoy, and build on the training already done. I’m already walking the dogs for 10mins more🙂.
Thanks to Andy and the team for a great weekend. Good luck to those on their way in the next few months, and those who have a longer wait we can share your excitement.
Hotel, guides & transfers in Kathmandu were spot on.
Biggest credit has to go to the guide & sherpa who take care of you every step of the way.
Thank you Evertrek
But it's the people that made the trek. Our guide Kishor is a wonderful guy. A real fixer, high altitude expert, family man and now, friend. When the weather delayed our flight, he did everything he could to make sure we were first onto another. His experience, knowledge and local contacts got us into places we just wouldn't have seen without him. He knew when to go to the best places to avoid the crowds and he was the picture of happiness with his infectious smile. He was kind to the point of putting us first all the time, without hesitation. A true gentlemen and the source of lots of fun and laughter - perfect for morale. Our porters also deserve a mention for their hard work and dedication through some difficult long days at high altitude. Manesh was particularly hard working and charming, keen to learn and become a guide himself in time. Our trek wouldn't have been the same without them and when I go again I will definitely seek out the same team.
My recommendation? Grab a loved one and go trekking in Nepal in the capable hands of the Evertrek team. And request Kishor to be your guide. You won't regret it.
Amazing service from Andy and Dave in helping me plan the most amazing,unique,epic,challenging,tough,
rewarding and memorable experiences...with stunning unspoilt views and a different pace of life.
They provided me with friendly, knowledgeable,caring guides. I really couldn't have asked for a better trek.
Highly recommend and will use again.
Just wanted to say a huge thanks to all at Bucket List, both here and in Nepal, for making my trip to EBC, Cho La and Gokyo so enjoyable and memorable. Himal, my guide, was a star and I enjoyed his company throughout the two plus weeks we were together; he looked after me really well and I have no doubt that his local knowledge helped to smooth the way on a few occasions when accommodation was tight! If my wife can be persuaded to let me go again, you will be my first port of call.
