Kathmandu - Lukla Flight Delay

In order to go to Everest Region trek, domestic flight is the primary mode of transport to reach at Lukla. It is fairly included in the trip. Sometimes, domestic flight (Kathmandu to Lukla or Lukla to Kathmandu) may be delayed due to weather conditions or any technical problems. In case of flight delay, Go For Nepal Treks and Expedition can arrange heli charter to ensure your are on schedule for your internation flight. However, you will be charged additional amount for heli charter which can be directly payable to our office at Kathmandu. The heli charter amount depends on group size. The minimum cost is $500 USD and maximum cost is $3500 USD. We suggest you to come a day earlier before you begin your trek. If you arrive a day earlier, you will have time to rest as well as time to buy trekking equipment. Likewise, having some extra days after you finished you trek is also better because your flight to Kathmandu/Lukla might be delayed due to bad weather and any technical problems.
