Beautiful Nepal  and sunrise

Beautiful Nepal and sunrise

I had a first hand experience of Nepal trek with Jungle safari in Chitwan National Park. The whole trip was well organised and itinerary was perfectly designed. In a span 11 days you can get endulge and enjoy with many things like nature, culture, and historical monuments in Kathmandu. Nepal is a very beautiful country by nature and had very interesting history. Our tour guide provided lots of information about historical Nepal. He was so informative and caring.  On the 3rd day of our trip we leave Kathmandu for Ghorepani and that day we had long bus journey but the road journey was so enjoyable. Road goes along the river, passes many small villages and settlements. We reached Ghorepani on the 4th day and hike to poonhill for the stunning sunrise view on the next day morning. The most enjoyed moment for me is seeing the sunrise from the view tower and mighty White Mountains in the north.  Also, the time we spent in chitwan was also great, had many adventure activities during our stay in chitwan. 

Many thanks to our trek leader Deepak, who is very friendly and caring. He was always there to help us. We loved his leadership. Thank you Deepak.

The great Poon Hill

We had a wonderful experience of trek to the Poon Hill in Annapurna region and we owe a lot to our guide Rajan. He was great planner and could understand us. Every time he was making our experience more memorable and enjoyable. He was very attentive and caring to my wife who was recovering from a chest infection. And one member of our group was unwell.  Rajan cope up with this in a great way and he led her to health post nearby. I really enjoyed the trekking trail to Poon Hill and back from another route.  We all member of group enjoyed and share some good time with each other.  After completing wonderful trek to Poon hill we depart to Chitwan for some more fun. Chitwan is very good place for adventure and nature lover.

The office team was also very responsive, caring and shows great deal of flexibility. I would recommend Luxury Holidays Nepal to plan your trip to Nepal.

Unbelievable trip with Luxury Holidays Nepal doing the Poon Hill trek with Jungle safari in Chitwan. From arrival at Kathmandu International Airport to transfering for our departure to airport, they took great care of us. Programme designed was excellent.

I can recommend our give our guide Deepak without thinking twice to you. His work and dedication was really impressive. He has the true leadership capability, he used to make sure we are enjoying and feeling comfortble every time.  He looks young but he is the youth potential. He was always at hand with menus for meals, and arrangements for every meal. Deepak is more friendly and helpful guide. He's a friend who we could trust right from the start.

I will certainly be returning to Nepal, and the first person I will be calling is Deepak at Luxury Holidays Nepal.

I enjoyed everyday and every minute of our time in Nepal! The Itinerary was well planned and trek was of moderate. The splendid view of white Himalayas and sunrise was mesmesrising.  I loved all the things about Nepal - the nature, the food, the Masala tea - our favourite thing of all is the people, in particular our guide Krishna. From the moment he greeted us at the airport, he was kind, friendly, and informative. Without him we don't think we could have made it up the mountain! He was so patient and knowledgable. He took care of everything guest and porters too.

Thank you - Namaste

Tips:
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.
