Trip Terms & Conditions
A. Booking Terms
If the date of booking is before the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), then an advance, which is typically 25% of the total booking value including any applicable taxes is payable at the time of booking. The balance amount is payable before the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date). If a customer fails to make the balance payment before the midnight of the 4th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), his / her booking shall stand cancelled.
If the date of booking is after the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), then the total booking value including any applicable taxes, is payable at the time of booking.
Payments for bookings shall be made online, through the payment gateway of reccytravel.com or other online modes, as advised by the Reccy relationship manager.
B. Loyalty Points
On making the full payment for a particular booking made through the reccytravel.com website, the customer shall earn Reccy Points equal to 5% of the trip value (excluding any taxes payable). Reccy Points earned can be redeemed towards making payment for any subsequent booking made through the reccytravel website.
Reccy Points earned for booking a particular trip cannot be redeemed until the start date of that trip.
Reccy Points cannot be earned in a booking, in the event the customer is availing any other benefit, such as a discount or is applying a promo code.
When redeeming Reccy Points in a transaction, the customer will earn Reccy Points only on the portion of the booking amount for which he / she is not paying through Reccy Points.
If you book a trip for INR 10,000, including 5% GST, total payable will be INR 10,500.
After you make the full payment for this booking, on the start date of this trip you shall receive 5% of the trip value as Reccy Points, in this case 500 Reccy Points will get deposited as your loyalty point balance.
On your next booking, let’s assume the trip value is INR 15,000, and total payable including 5% GST is INR 15,750. Your Reccy Point balance of 500 shall be applied at a 1:1 ratio to reduce your total payable for this trip booking by INR 500. Hence, you actual payable for this trip booking shall be INR 15,250, with a reduction of INR 500.
Not only that, you will again earn Reccy Points on the amount you paid for this trip, net of taxes and Reccy Points redeemed. In this example, on your second booking you will earn 725 Reccy Points (5% of INR 14,500), which will reduce your payable amount in the subsequent booking.
Of course Reccy guarantees the best price on every product listed on its website, hence your loyalty point benefit comes on top of the best prices you get for all your adventure and outdoor booking needs.
C. Group Discounts
Reccy offers discounts for large groups, typically comprising 6 persons or more. Please contact your Reccy relationship manager to know more.
D. Cancellation Policy
In the event a customer cancels his / her booking, for any reason, before the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), the amount paid by the customer for that booking shall be refunded to the customer, net of a 5% transaction charge, within 7 days of the customer notifying Reccy in writing, regarding his / her decision to cancel.
In the event a customer cancels his / her booking, for any reason, before the midnight of the 4th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), but after the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), provided the customer has paid the total booking value of the trip including any applicable taxes before the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date), Reccy shall issue to the customer a voucher equivalent to the amount paid by the customer related to that booking. The voucher can be used by the customer for making any purchase in reccytravel.com or any affiliate site, within 12 months of the voucher issuance date. No voucher shall be issued if the customer has not paid the total booking value of the trip including any applicable taxes before the midnight of the 8th day prior to the trip start date (to be calculated excluding the trip start date) or earlier.

If you want to experience the majesty of the Himalayas without overcrowding, the Manaslu Circuit trek provides an exciting, but mostly private, adventure. You will be heavily rewarded with views of the Manaslu range and other famous peaks. There are also multiple opportunities along the way to stop in small villages, learn local history, and visit sacred religions spaces.
To avoid monsoon season, this trek is only available from March to May and September through November. During the colder months, trekking poles and microspikes are encouraged to pass over the higher altitude terrain. This hike is suitable for more inexperienced hikers or veterans; it’s long but ultimately safe, and there is no climbing beyond walking on a well-worn path uphill. Lastly, visitors to Nepal (with the exception of Indian nationals) are required to have a visa, and additional permits are required to gain access to the Manaslu circuit. Your tour company can guide you to purchase these mandatory passes.
