      Excellent choice for our Everest Helicopter Tour

      Luxury Holidays Nepal was an excellent choice for our Everest Helicopter Tour. We had the most incredible Heli Tour. From the beginning, the company was very reliable in answering questions and his responsiveness was exceptional. We flew to Everest Base Camp with Family. Our Pilot was very knowledgeable, helpful, and polite. The Himalayan views, glaciers, and panorama from Kalapathher were really wonderful. The quality of service we received from LHN was excellent. The mountains and views are truly magical. Highly recommend booking a Heli tour with Luxury Holidays Nepal.

      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.
