Flight Cancellation

Owning to its demanding geographical location and climatic variation, the domestic flights in Nepal are mostly prone to flight delays and cancellation. Due to adverse weather conditions such as, heavy rain, thick fog, strong winds, etc. may lead the flight delay or cancel. Also, the topography of Nepal is difficult; therefore it is safe not to take off the flight in those adverse weather conditions.

So, autumn season (October -November) and spring season (March-April-May) is the most preferred trekking season when the weather is dry, clear and stable. At this time of year, flight delays and cancel is rare. For other seasons, weather cannot be guaranteed. Monsoon season (June- August-September) is highly prone to flight delay and cancel. The strong winds, rain and patchy clouds make the view unclear. Also, in winter season, flights may get cancelled due to thick fog.

Therefore, if you are travelling to Nepal, it is recommended to have one or two days spare in case your flight gets cancelled and you are in short of scheduled time. In other cases, road transportation can be an option. However, in case of flight to Lukla, you may have to change your entire schedule.
