Flight Cancellation

At Hiking Adventure Treks, we understand the unique challenges posed by Nepal's diverse topography and weather conditions, which can lead to occasional flight delays and cancellations. To ensure our clients have a seamless travel experience, we've curated alternative provisions to address such situations.

Understanding Flight Challenges in Nepal:

Geographical Complexity: Nepal's topography, characterized by towering hills and dense forests, poses challenges for flights, particularly in remote areas. Pilots prioritize safety, avoiding flights during adverse weather conditions like heavy rain and fog.
High Altitude Airports: Airports in remote areas are situated at high altitudes, making them susceptible to strong winds and heavy rainfall. These factors contribute to an increased likelihood of flight cancellations, especially in adverse weather.

Best Time for Domestic Flights:

Optimal Seasons: To enhance the chances of a smooth domestic flight experience, we recommend scheduling flights during the optimal seasons of spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). During these periods, the weather is generally favorable, reducing the risk of cancellations.

Monsoon and Winter Caution: Monsoon season (June-August) and winter months can be challenging for flights due to rain, strong winds, and fog. It's advised to exercise caution during these periods, and if possible, plan travel in the more predictable spring and autumn seasons.

Alternative Options in Case of Cancellations:

Road Transport: In the event of flight cancellations, we provide alternative arrangements for road transport to destinations with accessible road networks. This ensures that your travel plans remain on track, even in the face of unforeseen challenges.

Helicopter Transfers: Hiking Adventure Treks offers with the extra payment the option of helicopter transfers to destinations like Lukla, Jomsom, Phaplu, and Juphal, depending on availability. This efficient alternative allows you to reach your destination promptly, overcoming any disruptions caused by flight cancellations.

Spare Days Allocation: To accommodate any potential flight disruptions, we recommend allocating one or two spare days within your itinerary. This proactive approach ensures that you have flexibility in your schedule, minimizing the impact of unexpected cancellations.
