    Rules on trip

    Substitution of one camper with another is not permitted.

    Camp will be organised in the most informal atmosphere. However camp discipline is binding on everyone. Campers must abide by the directives of the camp organisers at all times.

    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. The end will be brought up by another instructor and nobody will trail behind him.

    The campers are required to carry their own luggage and hence should carry only essential items with them. All campers are responsible for the safety of their luggage/ belongings throughout the camp. Pugmarks / Eco Tours will not accept any liability in this regard.

    Girls and small children should not visit public toilets without an escort.

    Smoking, consumption of liquor, tobacco/tobacco products are strictly prohibited for the entire duration of the camp.

    Additional instructions, booking policies, terms and conditions

    In case of an emergency, inform the office immediately.

    Medical Aid: 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. For minor injuries or ailments first aid kits of the instructors are useful.

    Food on Pugmarks camp is good and plentiful. It is predominantly vegetarian, freshly cooked, non oily, non spicy. Water on campsite is clean and treated with liquid chlorine if required.

    Emergency: During the season there are about 10 to 15 camps in progress simultaneously and each camp leader reports to the control room at the Pune head quarters at regular intervals. It is mandatory for the camp leader to inform and discuss any unusual situation with the control room.

    Emergency involving an individual: This usually comprises of an accident/injury or medical emergency. 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. Where surgery or special medication is involved, eminent city doctors are consulted and as far as possible, a dialogue between the parents and the local doctor on the spot is ensured.

    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.
