Good to know

On some days, the weather is not predictable so we cannot complain about anything for the change. During monsoon and winter, flights often get canceled or delayed. This can happen in autumn (September-November) and in spring (March to May) as well. We have to wait long hours for the plane to arrive at the airport and register our names to board on the fly the following day at day end before getting back to the teahouse or lodge. This is why we separate additional buffering days for delays caused by such events.
