Flight Cancellation and Alternative Trip Policy
The weather can be unpredictable in the Himalayas and every year a significant number of trips have flights to or from Lukla delayed or cancelled due to unforeseen weather conditions. Under that situation, we will attempt to board our booked flight as per the itinerary. If this flight is cancelled we will return to our hotel in Kathmandu for an additional night.
On next day, we will again attempt to board our flight as per the itinerary. If this flight is also cancelled we will return to our hotel in Kathmandu for an additional night. Then, you must choose the alternate trip instead of everest trekking regions. Else, your trip cost won't be refunded.
We also advise allowing a few extra days in Kathmandu at the end of your trip should your return flights from Lukla be delayed due to weather conditions.
If you have any complaint about your trip, you must make it known to the leader of your tour group at the earliest opportunity, who will then be able to take appropriate action. If you feel your complaint has not been properly dealt with, you must notify the office in writing within 30 days after the end of your trip.
