Please note that often the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight gets delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions, and these conditions may arise even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Kathmandu or Lukla airport, as this can happen either at the start or end of the trek or even both! We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the next flight for you. We also organize Helicopter flights in such conditions, if it is available and upon request by our clients and at an additional cost to the clients. The helicopter costs vary but can be around the $4,000 mark and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. Still, we suggest you to be prepared for possible delays/cancellations, and if possible to come with some extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. If everything runs smoothly and you still have a few days of your buffer days left then you will have the option to set up activities around the Kathmandu Valley, which can be organized bySabbatical Explore Nepal for you. The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc. Unfortunately, if these situations arise and you cannot fly in or out of the mountains due to weather constraints, we cannot be held responsible and you will not be issued a refund in this case.
On the flights in/out of Lukla, the airlines restrict the amount of weight you can bring with you. They limit your duffel bag to 10kg and your backpack to 5kg. While on the trek your duffel bag is allowed to have 15kg in it, so you will have to adjust to meet these requirements or pay the excess baggage fee at the airport. The fees currently are $1 per kilo over the allowance, however, the airlines will not guarantee that you will get your bag on the plane if you are over the weight allotment, so we DO NOT recommend you going over the amount allowed. (Our Guide will weigh both luggage in Hotel before departure to Airport so please feel free and easy to consult with our guide and follow him.)
