COVID-19 And Your Adventure With Uma Holidays Travel And Tours

Coronavirus Update as at 4 September, 2020:  Uma Holidays Travels & Tours Pvt. Ltd. Bookings and Cancellations.

Uma Holidays Travels & Tours Pvt. Ltd. was founded in 2009 and is a leading travel company in Nepal with an excellent reputation for its honesty and care of its clients. 

We hope that you are staying safe during these crazy and difficult times. This won't last forever – thank goodness. We can't wait to see you back in Nepal and trekking through the mountains. We anticipate it won’t be long before you are heading to Everest, Annapurna, Manaslu or wherever you have booked a tour. This is an update on how we are doing what we have always done, and that is offering our support and putting our clients’ needs first. 
It is a shame to see the spring trekking season end without seeing hundreds of trekkers hugging and celebrating at the end of their trek or climbing expedition. The autumn season is also going to be effected due to the lack of international flights. At the end of September we will have a clearer picture of when international flights will resume. For now, and to play it safe, it is wiser to plan your trek to Nepal in 2021. By the time travel restrictions are lifted you will be anxious to get into the mountains and experience that freedom once again. We will keep you posted of any changes to Nepal’s border opening to international travelers.
Air travel to Nepal is expected to open at the end of September 2020. If this happens then you can expect to be on the trail and into the wilds of Nepal quick smart. There will be some differences to your normal trekking experience. For example, things like social distancing have to be respected and hygiene measures followed more stringently. These measures will not have a negative impact on your experience on the trails, but will require more caution in the villages and lodges we stay at. We may have to alter some sections of the trek, but nevertheless, nothing will prevent you taking in the views of the landscape and mountains. 
Currently, the Nepal government advises against all unnecessary travel to Nepal and only citizens can return at the present time. 
We at Uma Travels Holidays & Tours will stay vigilant and keep you posted of any changes to the border restrictions

Flexibility around your trip

We will continue to be flexible and provide whatever support we can on your future trek. We have rescheduled 100's of our client’s bookings to future dates. This applies to trips already booked and for all future treks. We will always listen and do whatever we can to accommodate your request. Essentially this means that we will honor all changes and rescheduling of treks at NO COST to you – even if this means your trek is in two years time!

We will keep your booking “open”.

We will put on hold your booking until you are ready to make a date. Obviously this will depend on our borders opening sometime in the near future. It is entirely up to you and when you are able to travel. There is no deadline for when treks and tours should be re-booked. If your flight is cancelled or for any other reason you cannot travel, then we will keep your booking open with no extra costs incurred.

New trekking dates & destinations.

We have added new dates for all affected trips in 2021, 2022 and also introduced new trekking dates for 2023. You will have plenty of options over the next few years. Check out our website for more information. Many trekkers make bookings years in advance. We will help you reschedule you trip. Just give us a call and set your mind at rest. Our team is here to help.

What's the current status of my trip?

Currently, all future trips after the end of September 2020 are planned to go ahead. Of course, this is subject to change by the Nepali government at short notice. We will advise you of any changes to this travel restriction.

New and future bookings?

Your trip is protected the same as bookings made prior to the pandemic. You will also be able to reschedule your trip hassle-free should circumstances prevent your trip from going ahead as planned.  
Uma Travels Holidays & Tours value our reputation and will ensure that you will always remain a satisfied client. After many years in this business we take pride in doing whatever it takes to make your tours a stress-free experience.
Fingers crossed that normality returns soon! The Himalayan Mountains are calling! Take care and stay safe.
