      Best Experience with The best Team

      The Everest Base Camp Heli Tour with LHN was one of my favorite trips of all time. Our guide Manoj was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, which allowed me and my family to fully immerse ourselves in this once in a lifetime experience. It was really a memorable helicopter tour in our life. The weather was clear and the views were really nice. We marveled at the majestic mountains from there and then flew to Kongde where we had our breakfast. The breakfast in Everest Hotel View was clean and hygienic. The view from the Kalapatthar is breathtaking. An excellent trip, looking forward to another with LHN perhaps next year.

      LHN made our trip so easy, simple, and enjoyable

      LHN made our trip so easy, simple, and enjoyable. We landed at Kathmandu Airport. Rajan welcomed us and took us to the hotel. The hotel in Kathmandu was very good and comfortable. The next day we went to see all the famous places around Kathmandu. The sightseeing tour in Kathmandu organized by Ram Hari was very interesting and the guide was polite, helpful, and well educated. After we visited Kathmandu city, we went on an Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour. On the Heli tour, we saw many beautiful natural mountains and we were very lucky to see such an amazing view. We were very satisfied with their service and were given information about the journey.  It was an unforgettable trip in my entire life. I highly recommend Luxury holiday Nepal and join this company for further holidays.
