Everest Region – Essential Info

Essential Trip Information for Everest:

We may need to alter our intended routes due to the quickly changing weather conditions in the Himalayas. Weather-related issues frequently cause flight delays or cancellations throughout Nepal, especially in high mountain regions. These delays are especially common on flights between Kathmandu and Lukla, which could alter the schedule of our tour departures. Therefore, we kindly ask everyone to plan on having a few extra days at the end of their trip just in case.

Special Note for Trekkers:

Some of the Peak Season The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal may run flights from Ramechhap to Lukla and Lukla to  Ramechhap Airport in an effort to relieve congestion at Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport. In this circumstance, any affected departures you will have to get up early on day 2 drive to the 135 kilometers (about 4-5-hours) from Kathmandu to Ramechhap airport and return. Transfers in a private vehicle will be provided at no additional cost. We will provide you with the most up-to-date information about flights.

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, where the journey begins, is normally trustworthy, but if the weather is poor, all flights for the day will be delayed or canceled. We will try to get you on a hired helicopter (depends on your interest )if the flight is cancelled, but you will be liable for the additional fees, which can range from $300 to $600 or more depending on the number of passengers on the flight.

Some itineraries include an extra day in the trek as a buffer in case of delays, while others do not. However, because flights can sometimes be delayed for many days, we recommend that you add a couple of extra days to the end of your trip in case of any delays. Extra days should always be added at the conclusion of the journey rather than the beginning.

Pre -Trip Meeting:

Ambition Himalaya hosts the Pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu 1st or 2nd (depends on Itinerary) day of the itinerary. Trekkers introduce with trek leader (guide). We will provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about Everest base camp trek.
