For the purposes of this declaration, I understand that “Organizers” means Wilderness Explore Company Limited and all present, former and future relevant persons, including their families, co-organizers, staff, and helpers.

**WARNING**:

During the activities, I may cross difficult terrain, including rough and exposed trails, hill passes, brushy areas, trails where landslides or rock falls may be possible or likely, river crossings over slippery rocks or makeshift bridges, steep stairs and there may be exposure to heights. I will risk slipping, falling, being hit by falling rocks, being caught in landslides, and being exposed to other related incidents. I acknowledge that I will be exposed to certain risks during the activity including but not limited to the aforementioned risks, physical hazards, unpredictable and sometimes dangerous weather conditions, actions of other participants, defective equipment, varying environmental and wilderness conditions, and encountering wild animals. I acknowledge that accidents can and often do happen which may result in me being injured (including physical and/or mental injuries) or even killed, and/or my property being lost and/or damaged.
