While you are on the tour and trekking, you can tip to the guide and porter. Normally, people tip 10% of their payable amount. If you have booked the full board package for your trekking and tour. but if you just hire guide and porter service you can tip differently like a per day calculation basis.

We don’t suggest tipping while you have something to eat at the restaurant as they have already taken a 10% service charge, and 13% Government Taxes. However, while you enter the hotel, the bell boy may expect some tipping.

Flight delay/cancelation  and changes in the itinerary:

Be aware that Lukla flights are based on weather conditions can sometimes lead to flight delays or changes. We always endeavor to make sure you reach your destination on time. And for our Everest three pass trek, we will re-arrange your ticket to the next available flight.

In the case of delaying Lukla flights, the client is responsible to bear all additional expenses including food and accommodation costs. If you wish to make alternative arrangements such as Helicopter flight to avoid flight delays, all additional costs would be your responsibility.

in case of flight delays to Lukla on this Everest three pass trek, we will endeavor to accommodate you with the same hotel you use in Kathmandu on your arrival day. if It is not available we will look for other hotels for your availability until we have a confirmed flight for you. We will adjust the itinerary to ensure you get as much time as possible in the mountains. This may mean reducing/removing the Kathmandu nights at the end of the trip.

If in case the flight from Lukla to Kathmandu is canceled you will be asked to cover the additional night cost and food as well. You will be rebooked for your flight the next day. If flights can not operate due to extremely bad weather: In extreme conditions, the regular flights cannot operate. In such cases, We can assist you by providing helicopter service for your Everest luxury trek. You will be asked to pay this extra cost (less the regular flight ticket price).
