    Extraordinary mountain views

    Extraordinary mountain views


    I was in Nepal last month for personal purposes. I love snow and hills. So I booked Mountain Flight through facebook. I found Luxury Holidays Nepal a little responsive and communicative.

    As my guesses, Luxury Holidays Nepal did my trip so nice. I was lucky that the sky and climate are clear and sunny that day. It was so amazing views of the mountains and peaks in the Everest region. Several peaks towering one by one was so exciting to look from the Himalayan sky above the cloud.

    Thank you Luxury Holidays Nepal for such a wonderful trip. Thank you so much!

    “Very Professional Team!”


    I recently took the mountain flight with this team in Kathmandu. This is the first time we are visiting Nepal. Coordinating the trip through via email before we landed here with this team was helpful. They are very fast with their reply. So they came met me at my hotel collected the payment before the day of travel. Handed over an itinerary. The next day their team member came down to the hotel picked us and dropped at the airport for the tour. The tour was truly stunning. And dropped us safe back in hotel. This team truly deserves an applause for being professional. I would recommend their services to everyone who wants to do flight tours, trekking and etc.
