Important Considerations

Lukla airport is known for its delays due to cloud coverage creating dangerous conditions. There is always chances your flight can get delayed or cancelled. If your flight is cancelled for a few days and if you have limited time then you can take a Helicopter to Lukla which cost you around $500 each way, per person. In that case you’ll receive a full refund of your original flight ticket (round trip from Kathmandu to Lukla). We suggest you to plan a few days extra at the beginning and end of your trip to make sure this tour’s itinerary will not affect your international flight back home.
