Garbage Deposit and Refund

Garbage Deposit and Refund

We support in eco-friendly tourism so we are responsible to destroy all the garbage and wastage of all peak climbing expedition operated by us. The climbing team must destroy or recycle the wastage in front of the concerned authorities and if not the team must bring back the wastage to Kathmandu and hand over to the concerned institution or body directed by Nepal Government.
The disposable responsibility is given to expedition operater on behalf of all climbing members and the company itself. The responsibility also indirectly goes to all individual expedition members as well.

Nepal Mountaineering Association, the authority to issue all climbing permits in Nepal, has formulated the rules of refundable garbage deposit which is issued only after the completion of expedition and proper disposable and management of garbage. The refundable garbage deposit is fixed by NMA and the rate varies in accordance to the importance of peak or mountain permitted to climb. In case of failing to proper management of garbage, authorities are not going to refund the deposited garbage amount.

In Tibet, the garbage deposit policy says that each expedition members must deposit certain amount to liaison officer and will only get it back after the completion of climbing and proper management or disposal of garbage as per TMA rule.
