DEAR T R AV E L E R The first edition of National Geographic was published in September of 1888, but it wasn’t until the early 20th century that the magazine garnered a reputation for exceptional photography. As editor Gilbert Grosvenor was preparing the January 1905 issue, he needed some last-minute filler content, and made the snap decision to run an unprecedented 11-page photo spread: a series that showcased the astounding monasteries and mountains of Lhasa, Tibet during a time when Westerners were barred from the city. The feature was one of the earliest photographic series ever published, and it marked the beginning of National Geographic’s long history of visually documenting Asia’s fascinating cultures and landscapes. We designed our new Asia by Private Jet itinerary in the spirit of our earliest days of exploration on the continent, creating an itinerary that will give travelers an in-depth look at iconic landmarks and landscapes, centuries-old traditions, and modern-day life. We’ll stand in awe of the glittering pagoda-style temples and ornate royal courtyards of the Kathmandu Valley. As we delve into the wonders of Bhutan—the last remaining Buddhist kingdom of the Himalaya—we’ll enjoy a private viewing of a boisterous monk debate at a majestic seventh-century temple. During our time in Vietnam, we'll glimpse traditional ways of local life from our base in Hoi An, and travel to two UNESCO World

Set out to explore the surrounding valley, encircled by soaring peaks. Step inside the imposing walls of the Paro Dzong, home to a large monastic community as well as government offices. At Kyichu Lhakhang—one of the oldest temples in Bhutan that dates to the seventh century—we’ll be offered a special invitation to watch red-robed monks debate—a rollicking event that involves plenty of impassioned speeches, boisterous clapping, and elaborate gesturing. Venture to the capital of Thimphu to witness the country’s newly embraced modernity and see some of the city’s highlights, including the Royal Textile Academy and the Buddha Dordenma—a massive sitting Buddha statue that contains 125,000 smaller gilded Buddha statues. Or opt to stay back in the Paro Valley and get a closer look at Taktsang Lhakhang, also known as the Tiger’s Nest Temple. Make the trek to the temple; or take a moderately challenging hike to a nearby viewpoint and train your camera lens on this iconic landmark. Zhiwa Ling Heritage

Fly by private jet to Da Nang and travel overland to Hoi An, an enchanting port city that offers a window on the days when traders from Japan, China, India, and beyond frequented the harbor. The narrow lanes of this World Heritage–listed ancient town look much as they have for centuries—lined by yellow merchant houses, strung with a rainbow of silk lanterns, and free of the motorbikes that speed through other cities across the country. We'll settle into a beachside resort here, and then set out to explore the area in a variety of ways. Venture to the ruins at My Son, an ancient Hindu temple complex and World Heritage site that once served as the political and religious capital of the Champa Kingdom. Join a temple preservationist for a walk through the mystical site, where moss-covered, fired-brick monuments stand in the shadow of towering Cat’s Tooth Mountain. Or travel to World Heritage–listed Hue, a former imperial capital that sat in the crossfire of the north and south during the Vietnam War. Here, we’ll explore the ancient, grand citadel and the imperial tombs of the Nguyen Dynasty. Back in Hoi An, go for a relaxing bike ride through rippling rice paddies, and meet weavers and farmers who still use ancient methods in their work. Delve into the local fishing culture on a visit to a nearby village, where we’ll join fishermen on the water to cast a net in pursuit of a good catch; then hop into a traditional basket boat and learn the trick to maneuvering these ever-bobbing vessels. Explore Hoi An's charming old town, discovering local artisan and culinary traditions. Meet with lantern-makers and piece together your own colorful silk creation. Or join a chef for a stroll through the delightfully chaotic central market, and peruse exotic ingredients central to the city’s unique cuisine.

Continue by private jet to Yogyakarta on the Indonesian isle of Java. The island is home to Prambanan, the largest Hindu temple in Indonesia; as well as Borobudur, the largest Buddhist temple in the world—both designated World Heritage sites. At Prambanan, gaze up at the central temples, dedicated to three Hindu divinities—Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma—and wander amid more than 200 ancient stone structures that dot the lush Prambanan Valley. Explore Indonesia’s Buddhist influences with a visit to the massive monument at Borobudur, built in the eighth and ninth centuries. Towering above a lush jungle canopy and framed by distant volcanic peaks, the complex’s main temple cascades across three stone tiers and holds 72 stupas, many still harboring a statue of Buddha. Instead of visiting Borobudur, you may wish to take part in a special meditation session at the Mendut temple, a pilgrimage site that welcomes visitors from across the globe to celebrate the birth, enlightenment, and death of Buddha. The group will then gather for a visit to the nearby Pawon temple. The sister temples of Borobudur, Mendut, and Pawon stretch through the jungle in a straight line, and we’re likely to spot pilgrims making the miles-long trek between the three structures. Glimpse modern Indonesian culture with a visit to the OHD Museum, displaying contemporary works from local artists. Cap off your time on Java with a special dinner, where we’ll sample snacks and dishes cooked up at a typical Indonesian night market. Amanjiwo or Plataran Borobudur Resort & Spa

The architecture here is a fusion of stately French colonial buildings and traditional wooden Buddhist temples—a unique urban fabric that has earned Luang Prabang World Heritage status. Discover the Royal Palace, erected in the early 20th century for King Sisavangvong and now home to the golden Phra Bang Buddha statue— the landmark that gave the city its name. Step into some of the city’s most important temples, including the ornate, gilded Wat Xieng Thong and the 16th-century Wat Visounnarath—the oldest temple in Luang Prabang. If you wish, glide along the Mekong to the cliff-side caves of Pak Ou, harboring thousands of Buddha statues in all shapes, sizes, and materials. During our time here, we’ll also have the opportunity to witness a morning almsgiving, the daily tradition in which monks emerge from their temples to the sound of drums and walk the streets to receive food donations from the city residents. If you wish, gain insight into Laos’ rich heritage at the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre, exhibiting handicrafts, clothing, musical instruments, and other cultural expressions of the country’s many ethnic groups. In the evenings, stroll the city’s palmy plazas and boulevards, and test your bargaining skills at the night market, where residents of nearby hill tribes sell everything from jewelry and vibrant textiles to spring rolls and French-inspired crepes. You’ll also have the option for a daytime market visit with a local chef, followed by a Laotian cooking class. Belmond La Résidence Phou Vao or Amantaka Hotel

The private jet brings us to Jodhpur in India’s fabled Rajasthan state. We’ll spend our time in the region exploring this beguiling “blue city,” with an overnight excursion into the Thar Desert, where shifting sands give way to ancient fortifications and timeless tribal villages. Soak in the splendor of the maharajas at our royal lodging in Jodhpur, then set out to discover the city highlights. Perched nearly 400 feet above the old town is the 15th-century Mehrangarh Fort, one of the largest and best preserved strongholds in all of India. Take in spectacular views over the city and, if you like, visit the fort’s impressive museum, which houses a spectacular collection of miniature paintings, textiles, weapons, and more. Then delve into the blue-hued historic center, a warren of twisting lanes and bustling spice-scented bazaars. We’ll also visit Jaswant Thada, an elegant marble monument to the maharaja Jaswant Singh II, as well as Toorji Ka Jhalra, a stunning 18th-century stepwell. Our excursion into the Thar Desert begins with refreshments at the palm-fringed Samsara oasis, followed by a thrilling 4x4 ride across stunningly stark landscapes dotted with timeless villages. Stop to meet with weavers, potters, and shepherds; and witness an amal ka dastoor, or opium ceremony. Later, we’ll settle into our enchanting tented camp before setting out by camelback for a sunset ride across golden sands. Tonight, enjoy a torch-lit banquet under the stars, accompanied by mesmerizing music and tribal dancing. Hotel Umaid Bhawan Palace; Samsara Desert Camp & Resort

INSTRUCTIONS Please read the following information carefully. By registering for an “Expedition” (as defined herein), the participant (“Participant”) agrees to the Responsibility Statement and OperatorParticipant Contract and Terms and Conditions below (the “Agreement”). In order to secure a reservation on the Expedition, the Participant must indicate his/her acceptance of the terms of the Agreement by signing the Knowing and Voluntary Execution of Responsibility Statement and Operator-Participant Contract and Terms and Conditions, and pay a deposit. RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT National Geographic Expeditions (a division of National Geographic Partners, LLC and its subsidiary Global Adrenaline, LLC, located at 1880 Oak Avenue, Suite 100, Evanston, Illinois 60201) is the principal and is responsible for providing the Asia by Private Jet Expedition as outlined in its catalog and on its website (natgeoexpeditions.com) (“Expedition”). All transportation carriers, hotels, ground operators, medical providers, and other suppliers of services connected with specific Expeditions (“Other Providers”) are not agents or employees of National Geographic Expeditions but are independent contractors over whom National Geographic Expeditions has no control. The Other Providers are solely responsible and liable for providing their respective services. The passenger tickets in use by the carriers will constitute the sole contract between the carriers and the Participant; the carriers are not responsible for any act, omission, or event during the time the Participant is not aboard their conveyances. National Geographic Partners, LLC, its parent, subsidiaries (including Global Adrenaline, LLC), and their respective employees, affiliates, officers, directors, successors, representatives, and assigns (collectively “National Geographic”) will not be held liable for: (A) unless negligent, any damage to, or loss of, property, or injury to, or death of, persons occasioned directly or indirectly by an act or omission of any Other Provider, including but not limited to any defect in any aircraft, watercraft, or vehicle operated or provided by such Other Provider; (B) any loss or damage due to delay, cancellation, or disruption in any manner caused by the laws, regulations, acts or failures to act, demands, orders, or interpositions of any government or any subdivision or agent thereof, or by acts of God, strikes, fire, flood, war, rebellion, terrorism, insurrection, sickness, quarantine, epidemics, theft, or any other cause(s) beyond their control; and (C) any and all claims, actions, or losses for bodily injury, property damage, wrongful death, loss of services, lost profits, consequential, exemplary, indirect or punitive damages, or otherwise which may arise out of or occur during the Participant’s travel in connection with the Expedition. The Participant waives any claim against National Geographic for any such loss, damage, injury, or death, including any right to seek consequential, punitive, or exemplary damages against National Geographic for any reason whatsoever, except as expressly provided for herein. National Geographic shall not be liable for any air carrier’s cancellation penalty incurred by the purchase of a nonrefundable ticket. National Geographic Expeditions reserves the right in its sole discretion to accept, decline to accept, or remove the Participant on or from an Expedition if National Geographic Expeditions judges the Participant to be incapable of meeting the rigors and requirements of participating in the Expedition, or judges the Participant’s actions to be unsuitable for group travel. In recognition of the inherent risk of the travels and related activities in which the Participant is intending to engage, the Participant willingly and voluntarily assumes full responsibility for any injury, loss, or damage suffered by or caused by the Participant. National Geographic Expeditions reserves the right, without penalty, to make changes in the published Expedition itinerary whenever, in its judgment, conditions warrant or if it deems it necessary for the comfort, convenience, or safety of the participants.

The rates are based on tariffs, currency values, airfares, and third-party charges as of catalog publication date and are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances.

Refunds will be processed in the manner in which payment was received within 14 days of receipt of the Participant’s notice of cancellation. Leaving an Expedition in progress, for any reason whatsoever, will not result in a refund, and no refunds will be made for any unused portions of an Expedition. If the Participant cancels and provides a substitute participant for the Expedition, the Participant will receive from National Geographic Expeditions a full refund of money paid toward the price once the substitute participant has paid in full. A Participant who paid the deposit by credit card shall have a right to a full refund until this Agreement is signed. Please note that the costs for visas, commercial air tickets, insurance, suite upgrades, and pre- or post-Expedition independent arrangements may not be refundable. ITINERARY CHANGES: The Expedition itinerary and staff presented in the catalog or on the website are subject to modification and change by National Geographic Expeditions. Every reasonable effort will be made to operate the Expedition as planned, but alterations may still occur after final itineraries are sent. In addition, should unforeseen world events or conditions require the Expedition itinerary to be altered, National Geographic Expeditions reserves the right to do so for the safety and best interest of the group. National Geographic Expeditions reserves the right to cancel any Expedition in the event inadequate enrollment makes the Expedition economically infeasible to operate, except as provided below. In such a case, National Geographic Expeditions will provide the Participant with a full refund of the monies paid to National Geographic Expeditions for the Expedition. National Geographic Expeditions reserves the right to cancel a trip for any reason, provided National Geographic Expeditions notifies you in writing within 7 days after the cancellation occurs, but no later than 10 days before the scheduled departure date. A full refund will be made within 14 days after such cancellation. National Geographic Expeditions will not cancel an Expedition less than 10 days before departure, except for circumstances that make it physically impossible to perform the Expedition. If such a circumstance occurs, National Geographic Expeditions will notify you as soon as possible; and if the trip is canceled, National Geographic Expeditions will refund all monies within 14 days. If National


Geographic Expeditions makes a pre-departure “Major Change” to a trip, you may cancel up to 24 hours before departure and receive a full refund within 14 days after cancellation. Only the following constitute “Major Changes:” (i) a change in the departure or return date unless the change results from a flight delay experienced by the air carrier, although a delay of longer than 48 hours will always be considered a “Major Change;” (ii) a change in the origin or destination city; or (iii) a price increase of more than 10 percent occurring 10 or more days before departure. If a “Major Change” occurs, National Geographic Expeditions will notify you within 7 days after learning of the change but at least 10 days before the scheduled departure. If National Geographic Expeditions first knows of the “Major Change” less than 10 days before departure, National Geographic Expeditions will notify you as soon as possible. If a “Major Change” which you are unwilling to accept occurs after your initial outbound flight has been completed, National Geographic Expeditions will refund, within 14 days after your scheduled return day, that portion of your payment which applies to the service not provided. NECESSARY DOCUMENTATION: Participants are responsible for obtaining any documents required for their participation in the Expedition prior to the trip, such as a valid passport, all visas, vaccination certificates, completed Physician Approval for Travel forms, and any other documents. To participate in the Expedition, visas and/or entry permits may be required for some countries. Acquiring visas and/or entry permits is the responsibility of the Participant. Failure to obtain necessary documents does not negate the Terms and Conditions, and any extra costs incurred for rerouting a Participant due to travel without the necessary document will be the Participant’s responsibility. National Geographic Expeditions will provide information on the necessary visas and/or entry permits in pre-departure documents; provided that National Geographic Expeditions does so for informational purposes only. Participant must verify the travel documents required for his/her travel. National Geographic Expeditions is not liable for any damages resulting from Participant’s reliance on advice provided by National Geographic Expeditions regarding travel document requirements. BAGGAGE: On the private jet, the Participant is limited to 90 pounds of checked baggage in two bags (one bag of the Participant’s choice limited to 50 pounds and one wheeled bag that National Geographic Expeditions will send to the Participant ahead of time for use on the Expedition limited to 40 pounds), plus a few smaller carry-on items like a backpack and/ or camera. In certain countries, participants may fly on private light aircraft. Due to weight restrictions on these flights, the Participant will only be allowed one bag, provided to the Participant by National Geographic Expeditions, plus his/her carry-on luggage (including camera equipment). For international flights, the air carrier’s liability is limited to the actual value of the baggage but not more than 1,131 Special Drawing Rights, approximately $1,600 per participant, unless a higher value is declared at the time of check in and an appropriate excess valuation charge is paid. Baggage, when not handled by National Geographic Expeditions, and personal effects are at all times the sole responsibility of the Participant. AIRCRAFT: The private jet flights will be performed using a Boeing 757 jet with 82 VIP-style seats. The air carrier for the Expedition will be Icelandair, Reykjavíkurflugvöllur, IS-101 Reykjavík, Iceland. National Geographic Expeditions and the air carrier reserve the right to substitute equivalent aircraft or scheduled service, if necessary. Participants who actually travel on scheduled service will receive only the protections applicable to such scheduled service. The Participant’s Expedition itinerary may include flights on smaller aircraft operated by local approved airline carriers. Seating on these aircraft will be economy or economy with limited business-class seats, based upon the configuration of the aircraft. INTERNATIONAL FLIGHTS: The operation of these flights is subject to the foreign governments involved granting landing rights for the flight. If the air carrier cannot obtain these rights for any particular flight leg of the Expedition, that flight leg will be canceled and alternative arrangements may be made at the discretion of National Geographic Expeditions. Alternatively, the Participant may cancel his/her reservation and receive a full refund if a flight leg is cancelled prior to first departure, or a refund of the unused itinerary if a flight leg is cancelled after first departure. COMMERCIAL AIRFARE: National Geographic Expeditions may be able to assist the Participant in reserving commercial flights from his/her home city to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and from Dubai, United Arab Emirates to his/her home city, in the class of service that the Participant prefers. Please ask for details. INSURANCE: National Geographic Expeditions strongly recommends trip-cancellation, health, and accident insurance, which is available at an additional cost. For more information about and to enroll in an option available through Travel Insurance Services, visit the “Travel Insurance” section of National Geographic Expeditions’ website at natgeoexpeditions.com. Insurance premium payments are subject to the policies of the insurance carrier. The Participant certifies that either: (i) the Participant has health insurance which will cover personal accidents, medical expenses, medical evacuation, air ambulance, loss of effects, repatriation costs and all other expenses which might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay or inconvenience occurring to the Participant; or (ii) the Participant agrees to pay all costs of rescue and/or medical services that may be incurred on the Participant’s behalf. HEALTH ACCOMMODATIONS: National Geographic Expeditions welcomes travelers with disabilities on all of its trips. However, not all trips may be suitable for all travelers, and certain activities may present challenges for Participants with limited mobility, stamina or endurance concerns, or other types of disabilities or special needs. For Expeditions with destinations outside the United States, any physical condition, diet, or treatment requiring special attention must be reported in writing when the reservation is made so that National Geographic Expeditions can determine whether or not reasonable accommodations are available. Walking and climbing stairs are required on most excursions, at many destinations and hotels, and to board and disembark aircraft at many airports. Boarding assistance will be provided at all U.S. airports, the first foreign airport after departure from the United States, and the last foreign airport before arrival in the United States, as provided by Part 382 of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s rules, but other airports may not provide assistance. If the Participant cannot participate in the Expedition at a reasonable pace, or requires extra assistance, arrangements may be made for private touring at each destination, if necessary,

at the discretion of our Expedition staff. Depending upon the nature of the arrangements, extra costs for such arrangements will be the responsibility of the Participant. If any Participant would like to forgo some of the scheduled sightseeing to rejuvenate and relax, he/she may feel free to do so at any time. Please call National Geographic Expeditions for further details if you require reasonable accommodation to participate on this Expedition. PHYSICIAN APPROVAL FOR TRAVEL: National Geographic Expeditions has engaged an independent physician group to staff the Expedition with a U.S.-licensed physician (“Expedition Physician”). The Expedition Physician assists National Geographic Expeditions with determining whether an individual may be able to/ought to participate in the Expedition, and is available to Participants to provide professional medical services during the trip. The Participant understands and agrees that Expedition Physician is not an agent or employee of National Geographic Expeditions. As a condition of participation in the Expedition, the Participant must obtain his/her personal physician’s approval to join this Expedition. National Geographic Expeditions will send the Participant a Physician Approval for Travel form for his/her personal physician to complete. The completed form should be submitted directly to the Expedition Physician at the address provided on the form. The Participant understands and agrees that Expedition Physician may share information from the completed form with National Geographic Expeditions. For the latest recommendations on specific health precautions for the areas visited, the Participant should consult his/her physician and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. MEDICAL EMERGENCIES: The Participant agrees that, should the Participant (i) experience any injury or illness while participating in the Expedition and (ii) become incapacitated such that he/she is unable to direct his/her own care, then National Geographic Expeditions may, in its discretion, rely on the direction of: Participant’s travelling companion, if any; Participant’s emergency contact; an Expedition Physician; or other Expedition staff, to authorize any necessary medical treatment including, but not limited to: X-ray, examination, anesthetic, medical or surgical diagnosis, or treatment and hospital care. Such treatment is to be rendered under the general or specific supervision of a physician licensed in the United States or, if in a foreign country and no U.S.-licensed physician is reasonably available, a duly licensed physician. In the event of any emergency, medical or otherwise, the Participant authorizes National Geographic Expeditions and the Expedition Physician to release any information necessary to obtain medical or other emergency services to any person providing such services. The information that may be released includes, without limitation, the information set forth on the Physician Approval for Travel form submitted by Participant. PHOTOGRAPHY: National Geographic Expeditions reserves the right to take photographs or videos during the operation of any Expedition or part thereof and to use the resulting photography, videos, or recordings for promotional or commercial use. By making a reservation on the Expedition, the Participant agrees to allow his/her likeness to be used by National Geographic and National Geographic–authorized third parties without compensation to the Participant. If the Participant prefers that his/her likeness not be used, he/she must notify National Geographic Expeditions in writing prior to departure of the Expedition. Copyright of all photographs, video, and related materials created by the Participant (“Expedition Materials”) will belong to the Participant upon creation. The Participant grants to National Geographic a nonexclusive, worldwide, irrevocable license to use any Expedition Materials provided to National Geographic in any media for the following limited purposes: editorial use, promotion of this editorial use, promotion of National Geographic’s travel programs, or promotion of the mission of National Geographic. ASSUMPTION OF RISK: By registering for an Expedition, the Participant acknowledges that he/she is aware that travel such as on the Expedition he/she is undertaking involves potentially dangerous activities, some in remote areas of the world, with a risk of illness, injury, or death which may be caused by forces of nature, illness, or by willful or criminal conduct of third parties or by terrorism. The Participant further acknowledges that weather conditions may be severe, adverse, and/or unpleasant and that medical services or facilities may not be readily available or accessible or consistent with standards in the United States during some or all of the time during which he/she is participating on the Expedition, and that when available may not be of the quality which exists in the United States. ARBITRATION AGREEMENT: Arbitration Agreement policy and process is available at natgeoexpeditions.com/terms. PRIVACY POLICY: National Geographic Expeditions’ privacy policy can be found at nationalgeographic.com/community/privacy. MAILING LIST: To update a mailing address, notify National Geographic Expeditions of duplicate catalogs, or to be removed from future National Geographic Expeditions mailings, please call toll-free 1-888-227-7265. OTHER: The applicable Terms and Conditions may vary from those listed above based upon the specific Expedition selected by the Participant. A copy of the final Terms and Conditions applicable to each Participant will be provided at the time of booking.
