This 12 day/11 night all-inclusive trekking journey is base on (double occupancy), If you prefer to have your own room, the single supplement is $450 and will be added to your last payment. (Click here to understand why this single supplement is necessary).

What is a single supplement and why do I have to pay it?

Our trip prices are based on double-occupancy rooms; that is, two people (spouses, partners, friends, etc) sharing a room and essentially splitting the cost of each hotel room.

If you choose to have your own room OR you do not have a roommate, you are responsible for paying the entirety of the cost of your hotel rooms, hence the additional fee (or “single supplement”).  If you traveling alone but desire a roommate, we can put you in touch with other single guests looking for a roommate; however, we can never guarantee a roommate and if you do end up with a private room, you will be responsible for the single supplement.

Please don’t think you’re ever being punished for traveling by yourself (we are big fans of traveling solo!), but we cannot absorb the extra cost of your hotel room if you cannot find a roommate.  We do not profit from your single supplement, it is simply to cover your private accommodation.

Please note that we cannot guarantee you a roommate for this trip, and if you room alone, you will be responsible for the single supplement.

A $800 deposit holds your space.  The second installment of $1000 is due by 30 days before start of trip and the balance is due by 10 days before start of trip.  Single supplement ($450) is due along with the last installment.
