Due to global warming the weather in the mountains and hilly regions has become more unpredictable. Because of this, we are facing some problems of bad weather, heavy rainfall, landslides, blocked highways, flight delays or even cancellations for a day. Sometimes because of the road traffic, we are unable to arrive on time. It may  happen any time of the year because we cannot predict the weather conditions and other situations.Therefore, if possible, we would like to suggest adding an extra supplementary day before your return international flight. If everything goes well, you will have a beautiful day to visit any interesting place in the historical city.
