I also replied you on another thread, you can take a look there. Always be careful while selecting an agency as it can also ruin your experience. Do not always follow the cheapest one, follow the recommendations of regular members in the forum.

Good Luck!

Welcome to TripAdvisor forum for Nepal!

I agree with rongpuk's point regarding putting your email in the open space. Be aware before selecting your agent. I also replied to your another thread.

Good Luck!

Hello, I need your expert advice! I am getting conflicting information about trekking in the Mustang region in June. I hear it is in the rain shadow so it is a good summer season trek. But I also hear the flight from Jomsom to Pokhara is cancelled about half the time. Your advice? What month(s) would you choose? Thanks so much!-

Both of what you say are true – June is a wonderful time to trek Upper Mustang as it is in The Himalayan Rain Shadow but Jomsom flights can be problematic + The road can wash out – Best Advice I can offer is to do the trek but leave yourself plenty of buffer days at the beginning and end to take into account probable delays

Good Luck and Happy Safe Trekking

The Jomsom-Pokhara flight is affected by winds which get stronger as the day passes. Because of this flights are scheduled early in the morning. I have been stuck in Jomsom twice; in March for a day and November for three days.

AFIK, the wind affects flights throughout the year and it's feasible that cloud cover in the monsoon can add to the problems so, as Rob says, have a few buffer days.
