The itinerary could be changed or modified as per your requirements, interest and length of your holiday. Weather, political, transportation and other disturbing factor are the main reason to make change in itineraries which are beyond our control. So, the guide or leader will provide you the best alternative during your trek.  The price of the trip will be according to standard of hotel, group size, duration and date of travel for the tailor made programme.

Regarding flight in the mountain region

Mostly twin otter is the most common means of air transportation in the Nepalese sky and during the flight in the Himalayan region of Nepal the flight schedule is cancelled and change from time to time due to poor visibility, weather condition and many other technical problem.  In such case we would charter helicopter for our guest regarding schedule of their international flight and for the different problem arise in the trek. The charter cost should be paid at head office of Tourist link Trek at Thamel and later on you can claim with your travel insurance.

As per Nepal Civil aviation rules the helicopter will fly, if the visibility is up to 1500m and visibility should be 5000m for flying Twin Otter in Nepalese sky.
