Does anyone know how much a flight from JMO to KTM would be in July, and how often these flights occur?
Above poster is quite correct in all respects, It is the middle of the monsoon season, Flights are often delayed / cancelled due to inclement weather and you do have to fly via Pokhara to get to Kathmandu.
You also have a choice that you can now catch a bus from Jomsom to Beni and from there another to Pokhara, but Monsoon times the road is often washed out.
Likewise there are several daily tourist busses from Pokhara to Kathmandu – However this is a much better road and the chances of busses getting through are far better.
If you book your tickets in advance through a Good Kathmandu agent you should expect to pay about £160 for both flight tickets – But whether you do this or not will depend on how confident you feel and what timescale you are operating within
