Some of the greatest journeys start with one click


Note, if you are applying for Annapurna Circuit Spring 2019 – please use Ultrasignup to register.

Otherwise, please fill out the application form below. This should take only about 10 minutes. After you register, follow the link to place a deposit to hold your spot with any major credit card or Paypal.
This deposit is non-refundable; however, you can transfer it to a friend who qualifies for the trip, if necessary. Paypal will confirm your deposit payment.

Give us at least two days to review your application/background. We want to make sure that people who join our trips are a good fit (and that the trip is a good fit for them!). If things don’t line up, we will provide you an immediate refund. If things line up, our reply will include links to the comprehensive HAL Nepal handbook and also your trip-specific handbook.

The balance of your event fee will be due within 30 days of your deposit unless other arrangements (please see below for the payment plan) are made (just ask).

We send monthly emails to all team members and hold web-based briefings once we are 6 months out. As we get closer to the event, we will ask you to upload a scan of your passport, a passport picture, and also flight and insurance information. Sound good? Great! To get started, please use the form below.


This transaction will be done through Accumethods LLC which handles payments to HAL as there are limited international banking options for handling credit cards in Nepal. You will see this name on the payment email confirmation. If you would like to send a check or money wire, just email us: Last, note that we use paypal as a payment processor because they offer secure credit card transactions and low fees. You do not need to create an account with PayPal and you can use any major credit card.

Note that your full balance should be paid within 30 days of your deposit unless other arrangements are made (we can work with payment plans, just ask). Please see our refund policy. If we are unable to extend an invitation for some reason, we will refund your deposit.

Terms and Conditions

Accumethods LLC is providing a payment mechanism for Himalayan Adventure Labs which has also established a refund policy for the convenience and protection of those members that are not insured.

Initial deposits are non-refundable. Funds received for the balance (not a deposit) of a trip are fifty-percent refundable when requested no less than 90-120 days prior to departure. Sorry, refunds are not available less than 90 days from the date of departure. And initial deposits are non-refundable. These deposits are used to secure group rates and establish advance logistics.

We reserve the right to cancel any trip or reservation on the basis of lack of participation, however, this has never happened and is pretty unlikely.
