The road to Bechler is dirt, and is often in very poor condition. With Bechler being so far away, we may not know the road state ahead of time. This could affect you in two ways. If we are aware that the road is in bad condition, we can only take a maximum of nine people in an executive van, instead of 14 in a minibus. If there are eight or nine, some or all of your backpacks will need to be on your laps. If there are more than nine, you may need to order and pay for two vehicles. In addition there will be a provisional $40 surcharge, plus 3.5% credit card fee, for the accumulated damage done to our vehicle. If we discover when we get there that the road is in acceptable condition, the $40 surcharge will be refunded.
