Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.Other Practical InformationNOTE: 1. Lukla flight based from Ramechhap Airport Dear Guests! This is to inform all of you that Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) has issued a NOTAM for Taxiway Maintenance due to which Kathmandu Airport will be closed from 22:30 hours to 6:30 hour everyday effective from September 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. During the above mentioned period there will be more traffic congestion at Kathmandu Airport which leads to Air Traffic Hold, flight delay and high possibility for flight cancellation due to flight startup queue, therefore for smooth operation of Lukla flights, all the airlines will be operating Lukla flight from Ramechhap Airport effective October 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Ramechhap is located in the Tamakoshi River Valley, the capital of Ramechhap District at an altitude of 474 meter. It is located 132 kms east of Kathmandu and takes about 4 hours by drive from Kathmandu. Thank you for your support and apology for the inconvenience caused by this which is beyond our control. Alternatively, if you prefer to ride helicopter to/from Lukla based from Kathmandu avoiding long drive to/from Ramechhap can be arranged upon request paying additional fees. 2. In a worst-case scenario, if the flight from Kathmandu / Ramechhap to Lukla, or Lukla to Kathmandu / Ramechhap is delayed or cancelled due to bad weather, we can always transfer you to a next day ticket.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
Is a visa on arrival available?
Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
