Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight may be delay by few hours or even cancelled due to bad weather condition. So, you should be prepared for such flight delays or cancellations. But we will do our best to avoid such conditions. In case of flight cancellation, we will try to get you on the flight for the next day. Getting early flight for the next day may not be possible during the high season so, we can arrange flight by helicopter as well but it will cost a bit higher. If we have a group of 4 or 5 people, we can charter helicopter. It will be advisable to have extra days in Kathmandu before and after the trekking. We can arrange you day tour, in Kathmandu valley with extra cost if the extra days are not used for the flight conditions to Lukla and back. If the flight is delayed and cancelled for several days which could disturb your onward journey, you are free to choose trekking in Annapurna, Langtang and other regions and we will arrange the alternative trek for you as soon as possible.
