We begin our trek from a short yet beautiful scenic flight to Lukla (2860 m). After a half an hour flight to Lukla, passing through the stunning village, we make our way towards the heart of the Solu- Khumbu Region, Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site that is home to rare flora and fauna. On our way to Namche Bazaar (3445m), the land of Sherpas, we pass through beautiful and dense pine forests, rhododendron flowers and wildlife abundance. We spend a day in Namche in order to get acclimatized to higher altitudes. After a day at Namche, the trek continues passing through the village of Tengboche (3860 m), home to the holiest and highest Buddhist monastery in the world. The place is famous for photographers who get an exceptional shot of the stunning view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Ama Dabalam and its neighboring peaks. The concluding days of Everest view trek will be spent in the wonderful and scenic villages of Khunde (3840 m) and Khumjung where we will have an opportunity to interact with the local Sherpa people and participate in their remarkable traditional lifestyle. We then return back to Lukla from the same trail, enjoying the last views of the breath-taking Himalayan ranges and Everest.

The journey all in all is one amazing experience in the Himalayas in a very limited time. The trekkers get to explore the Everest Region and the rural lifestyle of its people.

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla

Lukla Airport (aka Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Airport), located on an enormous valley is bounded with high mountains. Due to this reason, the arrival and the taking off from Lukla are technical and difficult most of the time. The weather here is unpredictable and changes every next hour which causes flight delay or cancellation.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only primary methods of the transportation to Lukla from Kathmandu of the airway at Lukla. The service provided here is fairly dependable. However, if the flights get cancelled or delayed due to mountain weather conditions, we will help you to charter a helicopter and make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connections. The additional charges roughly required are USD2,400 to USD2,800 per helicopter (USD 4,50 to USD 2,800 for each individual) would be pertinent to you for the helicopter charter. The helicopter will be taking 4 to 5 trekkers at a time and the expense can be shared among the riders. The cost must be paid by rider, which can later be submitted for reimbursement through travel insurance company. We can assist you with important documents for a claim. Payment for the helicopter must be done by the rider before or during the ride.

US dollars cash or Visas (Visa Cards, Master Cards, and American Express) are accepted for helicopter transport. Any card payment requires a 4 percent bank charge, which goes straightforwardly to the bank. The helicopter will be able to fly if the visibility is 1500 meters or greater, whereas the Twin Otter and Dornier planes can fly if the visibility is 5000 meters or greater, according to Nepalese Civil Aviation rules. If a situation, in which the weather is extreme and the visibility is lesser than 1,500 meters arises, then the helicopters will also not be able to fly either. In such cases, we will reschedule your trip for the following day depending on the availability and condition of weather. If this situation continues for a long time, then you will be provided with alternative trek options.
