Change of Itinerary
We reserve the right to change or alter any itinerary at any time for reasons beyond our control. These could include but are not limited to adverse weather conditions, cancellation of flights or government restrictions in certain areas.
Whenever we are forced to make such late changes, we will always endeavor to give guests as much advance notice as possible and to ensure that the alternate itinerary achieves, insofar as possible, the objectives of the original tour.
Spring : The Gokyo Lakes are best visited in the spring, when the temperature is milder and the sky is clearer. From March through May, the hours of sunshine lengthen, and the vista of gleaming mountains along the path may make it an exceptionally spectacular excursion.
Autumn : Similar to Spring, Autumn brings clear and blue skies with plesant temperature. The fall celebrations of Dashain and Tihar make it a joyous time of year in Nepal. Throughout October, Tengboche hosts the Mani Rimdu festival. It is the most important occasion for the Sherpa people who live in the Everest region.
