Itinerary Informations

Welcome to our exclusive travel options – Standard Itinerary and Private Trip. Our provided itinerary is standardized, but we understand your need for customization. Feel free to tailor it to your preferences or explore our Plan Your Holidays page for a personalized touch.

Essential Travel Coverage

Ensure a worry-free journey by securing travel insurance that comprehensively covers adventure activities, especially those above 15,000 feet, such as trekking and hiking. Your insurance should also encompass potential disruptions like flight delays, cancellations due to adverse weather, accidents, and emergency evacuations.

Key Considerations

Keep in mind that unforeseen factors like sudden weather changes, natural disasters, flight disruptions, governmental regulations, local political situations, and the health conditions of trekkers might impact your itinerary. In such cases, our experienced guides will adapt and minimize disruptions, but any additional costs incurred will be your responsibility.

Upgrade Your Experience

Enhance your travel experience by opting for upgrades in accommodation and transportation services. Choose from our selection of 5-star hotel accommodations and top-tier private car/jeep services. Additionally, consider domestic flights, including helicopter charters, for a truly luxurious journey.

Navigating Lukla Flights:

Lukla flights are subject to weather sensitivity, often experiencing delays and cancellations. The small Himalayan airport faces challenges with heavy traffic, leading to potential disruptions. To ensure a smooth Everest trekking experience, allocate at least two extra days in your schedule.

In the event of a weather-related cancellation, chartering a helicopter becomes a viable alternative due to its ability to operate in lower visibility (1,500 meters). Note that Twin Otter and Dornier aircraft require a minimum visibility of 5,000 meters.

Helicopter Logistics:

Helicopter charters to Lukla from Kathmandu incur a fee of US $2500 per flight, with a sharing option at US $500 per person. During peak seasons and adverse Lukla weather conditions, immediate helicopter availability may not be guaranteed, and you might need to join a queue. Requests made less than 24 hours in advance may also involve waiting due to limited helicopter availability for various mountain activities.

Lukla Flight Relocation:

Due to peak air traffic in Kathmandu during March, April, May, September, October, and November, the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) has shifted Lukla flights from Kathmandu to Manthali. Stay tuned for updates on any changes to this arrangement.
