Rating:  

We are just back from a superb vacation in Tibet and Nepal and were very impressed with the good organization for us by Luxury Holidays Nepal. Everything from the warm reception, assistance with permits, planning and organization of our trek in the Himalaya,... was just perfectly done and they have also been very flexible and willing to make changes were we wanted. Despite sometimes impossible traffic the organizers were always very reliable and super punctual.

We enjoyed our tour in the mountains very much and were very well led and supported by the perfect team of guides and porters selected for us. They set just the right pace so we all managed the whole trek and didn't have any trouble with the height.

Accommodations
We will be staying at Yarlung River Hotel in Tsedang, Kyichu Hotel in Lhasa, Yeti Hotel in Gyantse, Gesar Hotel in Shigatse, Rongbuk Monastery Guest House in Rongbuk and Zhangmu Hotel in Zhangmu. The hotels in Lhasa, Tsedang, Gyantse and Shigatse are 2-3 star hotels but due to their remote location, the hotels in Rongbuk and Zhangmu are very basic. It is also possible to upgrade to a better hotel in Lhasa, but the accommodations in other cities and towns are the best available ones. All accommodations are on a twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost 375 USD.

Meals
Only breakfasts are included in this trip. We are expected to pay for lunches and dinners on our own. Breakfast will be taken in the same place we stay for the night. Similar arrangements can also be made for dinner. Lunch will be taken en route to the next destination(s). We recommend our guest(s) to budget Yuan 60 to Yuan 100(US$10 to US$16) for lunch and dinner every day. We will mainly eat Tibetan bread, dal (lentil soup), bhat (rice), tsampa porridge and other simple local foods.

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.
