The refund of all land payments received shall release High Asia Tours, Inc. from any further liability.

However, High Asia Tours, Inc, does not guarantee recovery of any or all of the advance payments made, and our use of best efforts to recover these payments will not include the institution of any legal proceedings in foreign jurisdictions.

Claims for refund for services not rendered must be accompanied by a statement from the Tour Manager/Guide or local High Asia Tours representative certifying exactly the services not rendered. Voluntary non-usage of hotel accommodations, tour features and services are non refundable or exchangeable for other accommodations, tour features and services. Travel insurance, visa fee, and visa handling fee are non-refundable.
