NOTE: Sherpa Expedition and Trekking company family’s we humbly request dear honor guest, during the trip, weather, local politics, transport or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can bring changes in the itinerary. It is, however, very unlikely that the itinerary would be substantially altered; if alterations are necessary, the leader will decide what is the best alternative, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. Where a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.
Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla
Sherpa Exp & Trekking company family’s inform that’s; Lukla Airport is situated on a wonderful valley surrounded by high mountains. Due to this reason, landing and taking off from Lukla is considered to be difficult and technical. The weather in the area unpredictable and is likely to change every few hours resulting in flight delays or cancellation.
Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the primary mode of transport to and from the airstrip at Lukla. This service is fairly dependable. However, if flights are canceled due to mountain weather conditions, to Lukla or from Lukla to Kathmandu, we will help you charter a helicopter to ensure you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connections. The extra charges incurred are approximately $2,500 to $3,000 USD per helicopter (USD 500 to USD 3,000 per person) would be applicable to you for the helicopter charter. The helicopter takes 4 to 6 passengers at a time and the cost can be shared amongst the passengers. The cost must be paid by the participant, which can later be submitted for reimbursement through travel insurance company. We can help you with the necessary documents for a claim. Payment for helicopter must be paid at time of service by participant. US dollars cash, or credit cards (Visa Cards, Master Cards, American Express) are accepted for helicopter transport. Any card payment requires a 4% bank fee, which goes directly to the bank.
The helicopter can fly if the visibility is 1500m or greater, while the twin otter and Dornier planes can fly if the visibility is 5000m or greater, as per Nepal’s Civil Aviation rules. If the weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500m helicopters are also not operated. In such case we will reschedule your flight for next day depending on the availability. If this situation keeps on getting repeated for many days then you would be provide with the alternative trek options.
