Actually we never thought that our Annapurna trekking will be so much incredible and close to nature that it will remain fresh in our memory for a long time. Since the times we’ve correspond with Luxury Holidays Nepal especially with Mr. Resham Shrestha he answered us so promptly. Upon arrival in Nepal he has constantly assisted and helped us to make our trip an experience of my life time. As we write this we long to go for another such trips with Luxury Holidays Nepal.

When we were at the base camp we found the amazing mountains right in front of our eye which was unbelievable! We recommend everyone to go to Annapurna with Luxury Holidays and experience what we did.

A general rule of thumb for tipping is to USD 40 to USD 70 per Traveler, depending on the length of the trek. Porters do appreciate a personal tip, although it is not uncommon for the Guide and his Porters to pool the tips they have collected before splitting it amongst themselves, with the Guide is getting a little more for overseeing the welfare and safety of both the Travelers and Porters as a whole. That said, this is just a guide and you may tip, however much you think is appropriate for the services rendered which made your trip a memorable one.
