Waitlist Related Queries
What does it mean to be on the waitlist?
Once a group is filled to its capacity, the waitlist slots for that group open up. You can register to be on the waitlist for a slot in that group.
If there is a cancellation from the confirmed list of trekkers, the first person on the waitlist is notified. An email will be sent out to the registered email address.
The trekker will have 24 hours to make the payment and confirm the slot.
If the payment is not done within 24 hours, the slot will move to the next person on the waitlist and so on.
If you have registered for more than one person on the waitlist, you will be notified only if there is a cancellation of the total number of trekkers you have registered for.
We have a total of 5 waitlist slots for each group.
What are the chances of my waitlist slot being confirmed?
We have observed patterns in how the waitlist slots get available.
The shorter the duration of the trek, the more the probability of getting a confirmation.
Treks like Kedarkantha, Brahmatal, Deoriatal Chandrashila, Nag Tibba have a higher probability than, say, Rupin Pass or Buran Ghati.
Also, we close our waitlist 7 days before the trek. We do this even if the waitlist slots are not full. We believe that you need at least 7 days to prepare for the trek and book your travel.
Also, 7 days before the start of the trek, we stop sending out notification to trekkers on the waitlist, even if there is a cancellation. This is again keeping in mind that one needs time to prepare well for the trek.
When will I get my waitlist confirmation?
A lot of trekkers ask us this question. To be honest, we cannot really predict when you will get a confirmation.
It all depends on the cancellation of a confirmed slot. We cannot predict when a trekker is going to cancel.
If you have registered on our waitlist, we recommend you keep a watch on your email. Our notifications are automated. In case there is a cancellation, you will be notified immediately by email.
Do I have to make a payment to be on the waitlist?
Registering for a waitlist slot does not require you to make any payment.
Only if there is a cancellation and the slot is allotted to you, you will have to make the payment with 24 hours.
You will be notified by email.
Can I register for waitlists on many treks?
You can register for waitlist slots on more than on trek or group. However, it is important that the dates for which you are registering do not overlap.
Our system will not allow you to register if the dates are overlapping.
