Note: Because of its demanding geographical structure and climatic variation, the domestic flights in Nepal often delays or cancellation. The adverse weather conditions like heavy rain, blinding fog, strong winds, etc. may lead to flights delays and cancellation. Also, considering the geographical structure of Nepal, it is safe not to take off the flights in those extreme weather conditions. Therefore, if you are traveling to Nepal, we highly recommend you to have one or two days for spare in case your flight gets canceled and you are in short of scheduled time. In other cases, road transportation can be an option. However, in case of the flight to Lukla, you may have to change your entire schedule if you are in short of time as there is no other option owing to its dramatic location. Therefore, Travel Insurance is highly recommended. In case of flight cancellation, if you are in short of time and are unable to catch your scheduled flight back in Kathmandu, Amazing Nepal Trek & Expedition will arrange a helicopter at your service. However, the cost should be borne by you which can later be claimed through the insurance company.
After the trek is over, you will be provided with ANTA adventure certificate.

Flight Delay in Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu
Twin Otter and Dornier is the primary mode of transport to and from the airstrip at Lukla. This service is fairly dependable. Sometimes, flights (to and from Lukla) may be cancelled due to mountain weather conditions or technical problems. In such case, Amazing Nepal will charter a helicopter to ensure you are on schedule for your international flight. The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500m, while the twin otter can fly if the visibility is 5000m, as per Nepals Civil Aviation rules.
The cost of the helicopter is payable directly to our Kathmandu office in the event that this service is utilized. US cash, travelers cheques, or credit cards (Visa Cards, Master Cards only) are accepted. You will be given a receipt upon payment so that you may claim the amount from your travel insurance. The minimum cost will be US$500 and maximum US$3500 depending on the number of group members.
It is recommended that you should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek. When you arrive a day earlier, you will have time to rest as well as time to buy trekking equipment. Similarly, it is best to have some extra days after you have finished your trek because your flight to Kathmandu/Lukla might be canceled due to bad weather. So all together it is recommended to have a few extra days beside the trip schedule so that you dont miss your International Flight.
