Hence, the flight timings and the tour itinerary are subject to last minute changes or delays or even cancellation for a day or more.
However, one good sign is that these phenomena do not occur too frequently during the top pre-monsoon (February to April) and post-monsoon (Late September to December) seasons.
However, it is advisable that due to this probability you have some extra days in your kitty. In case the weather gets too bad, you have the option of changing your ticket, or availing chartered helicopter services, though that will bear an extra cost.
