Trip Note

Flight Delays …A possibility to keep In Mind When Planning

For treks that start in Lukla, we normally book flights between Kathmandu (KTM) and Lukla (LUK) on Twin Otter planes. While flight service between the two airports is fairly reliable, at times the flight schedule can be disturbed and flights cancelled because of weather or mechanical problems.  If this happens after your trek and you would miss your international flight out of Kathmandu, Adventure Club Trek can charter a helicopter on your behalf and at your expense, so that you do not miss your international flight. 

We accept US cash, travelers' checks, and credit cards (Visa and Master Card only). Upon payment to our Kathmandu office we will provide you with a receipt, which you can use to receive reimbursement if you have a travel insurance policy.  Depending upon the number of passengers, a helicopter flight will cost at least US$500, and up to US$3,500.

NOTE: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip

Pre-Trip Meeting

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
