This first December, I was in Nepal for trekking in the Everest region. I was looking for Everest base camp trek but Luxury Holidays Nepal suggested to trek Everest base camp with Gokyo Lakes. They told me this route passes through Everest Base Camp and also took to Gokyo Lakes as well. 

They provided one guide and one porter for that. in fact I had a private trek so I need not share the trip with others. The guide was so professional and experienced, he had provided lots of information and assisted very well. He introduced lots of peaks of the Everest region. The porter was also so strong and easily carried my bags. Both of them was osm funny, they even didn't make me bored, we had lots of entertainment and joy together all along the journey. 

Thanks to Luxury Holidays Nepal Pvt. Ltd. for providing me such an incredible experience. I will definitely join you for my next trips and I also recommend everyone who wants to visit Nepal to join the Luxury Holidays Nepal.

Thank you Luxury Holidays Nepal (LHN) for making my trip, the trip of a lifetime. The whole member of the LHN was really good and responsive to good perfection. All staff was good with all the qualified guides and porters with also good English and kind nature. Actually, they were all far better than the other staff and companies in my view. All everything which was provided for us such as accommodation, meals were really fine and the services which we got from the LHN were amazing and fabulous of all in case of a meal, hotel, facilities and all. Most importantly the trek to Gokyo lake and EBC was the best moment in which I could have ever imagine that it would have happened in my life. Actually, each moment of my whole trip was far better than my expectation and it is all because of the warm support and consideration of the LHN.

Our trip to Gokyo lake and Everest base camp was the best trip of my life. We find Nepal the best destination and we fell in love with it. We will again visit Nepal to another classical trek, it’s really beautiful. Guide Ram is a fantastic man with always smiles on the face. He was full of eager to make us know about each and everything we observe every place where we were traveling too. He was a really cool frank guy with full of knowledge and ideas. He was focused on a very smooth and perfect trek. More important thing was, we had completed our trip with the amazing and helpful porter who had helped to carry our bags all the way to EBC. The wow!

We just flew out to Nepal with 10 friends and completed the event of trekking Everest Base Camp as well as Gokyo Lake with Luxury Holiday Nepal and their Team. The Guidance and assistance provided by the Guide of LHN were excellent and we found it very friendly and kind in a good manner. The hotel rooms in Kathmandu were quite peaceful and luxurious. We did the trek with LHN and were guided by Ram Prasad and felt that he gave it the extra effort and support to complete our trek. The scenery of Gokyo Lake and people, culture, villages were wonderful and start out every morning surrounded by blue sky with amazing mountain views of the Himalayas was breath-taking. The tea houses we stayed in were comfortable as the food was varied and plentiful. We were really impressed with their style and how they operate. We definitely recommend Luxury Holiday Nepal. We will certainly return. Thank you!!!

Gokyo Lakes and Everest base camp trek is the most precious moment of Nepal that I will never forget. I have done and been doing lots of trekking around the world but that trekking in the Everest region is best I have done yet. 

The route was so amazing where the giant views of gigantic mount Everest and other neighboring sky-touching peaks were all one way with us. We also visited several Sherpa villages and tried their traditional foods. Their traditional costumes are so nice and unique. Not so luxurious but hotel as compared to that high altitude and remoteness due to geographically challenging places were better and pretty nice too. 

My trek was more memorable and enjoyable because of the efforts and arrangements of the luxury holidays Nepal Pvt. ltd and its team. They planned everything very well. Guide, porter, and equipment all were very good. They crossed my expectation in the trip arrangement. Thank you luxury holidays Nepal for adding more color in my Everest trekking memories.

Tips:
A general rule of thumb for tipping is from 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.

Note:
1. Please note that often the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight gets delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions. Such conditions may arise even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Kathmandu or Lukla airports, as this can happen either at the start or end of the trek or even both! We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the next flight for you. We also organize Helicopter rescue in such conditions, if it is available and upon request by our clients. The helicopter charges around USD 3500 and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. Still, we suggest you be prepared for possible delays/cancellations, and if possible to come with some extra days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. If everything runs smoothly and you still have extra days then you may even engage yourself in optional activities that can be arranged by Luxury Holidays Nepal upon request. The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc.

In case the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of the trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other region. If you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather wait for your original preferred trip, you are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for as many days as it takes to get a flight to Lukla. However, please note that there will be no refund if you lose time waiting at the airport and do not take an alternative tour or you only do a short trek later due to time limitation. If the cancellation happens before the trip, we will provide you accommodation and lunch in a guesthouse in Kathmandu. In case of the flight delay/cancellation after finishing the trek, you will be responsible for all your expenses. Please also note that you will not be entitled to any refund for the services (such as hotel, transportation, flight, etc.) included in the package that you would not use later.

2. During the trip; weather, local politics, transport or other factors, which are beyond our control can result in a change of itinerary. It is however very unlikely that the itinerary would be substantially altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide what the best alternative is taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. Where a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect.
