Trip Note


Sometimes the flight may be cancelled due to the unpredictable weather in Luka so Himalayan Joy Adventure has created itinerary for this trek with one day free/extra day in the end of the trek. In case your flight has been cancelled more than two days, we will charter a helicopter to and from Luka to ensure your flight on scheduled towards homeland or further destination. This extra service cost will be minimum $500 to maximum $4000 USD dollars which you can claim from your insurance.


Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can takes long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
