The "Offbeat" theme of Muddie Trails
They do not take travellers to a tourist place unless it is required as a 'filler' in the itinerary between two offbeat places. Travellers are requested to refrain from asking the organizers to take them to ABC temple or XYZ church. The itinerary is already decided and posted based on their offbeat theme. The organizer will only change the itinerary if any place cannot be visited because of unpredictable reasons. If you have a wish list of tourist places to tick off in your mind, then probably Muddie Trails is not for you and hence they kindy request you to not register.
During the meetup, Muddie Trails is not responsible in case of any injuries or animal attacks or reptile bites.
Expect the unexpected in case of wild forests like the sudden closing of trek path by govt/forest department(because of wild animal sighting/landslide/some crime), in which case MT may have to cancel the trek (this is very rare - never happened till now). In this case, the organizer will plan for alternate trek/trip. If this is not possible, then Muddie Trails will refund the remaining amount after removing the travel cost.
Avoid discussing sensitive matters like sex, politics and religion/race.
Using foul or abusive language or arguing with fellow travellers/organizer will not be acceptable and will stand a chance of being deserted by the travel group.
50% refund within 3 days and before 24 hours from meetup start time.
No refund within 24 hours from meetup start time
