    Additional instructions, booking policies, terms and conditions

    Pugmarks establishes a tie-up with local hospital/nursing home/doctor at every camp site.

    In case of remote areas, either a vehicle is retained at the campsite or it is on-call at the local transporter.

    A roll call/physical count will be taken to ensure nobody is left behind. This will be observed during travel, treks and adventure activities. A Pugmarks instructor will lead the walking trail in the jungle, and the end will be brought up by another instructor and nobody will trail behind him.

    In the mountains, there are rescue parties to evacuate victims suffering from altitude sickness, asthma and body injuries. In the remote wilderness, there are standby vehicles to transfer the victim to the nearest primary health centre or hospital.

    Emergency involving whole group - This can be a natural calamity, local unrest and violence or even a mundane traffic jam that throws all schedules out of gear. In such situations, the control room seeks help from the police commissioner and coordinates with district authorities to sort out the problem.
