Luxury Everest Trek with Luxury Holidays Nepal

Rating:  

This trek was awesome. Luxury Holidays Nepal was so helpful from starting to ending days! They are so much concerned with our safety, luxury as per their company name (which was absolutely great) and making sure you reach base camp without any obstacles! We laughed, cried, and gained strength to reach base camp. I would highly recommend this company and this trek.
The trek is worth it and our guide Ram was great!!

EBC,
A Trek for life time. 
The mountains view we believe is unbeatable. 

Few tips: 
1) if your flight are delayed, then don't waste your time instead take a helicopter. Try to book a morning flight then you will have more chances to go to lukla.
2) Take an aluminum bottle, so that you can put hot water at night up in the mountains.
3) take some water purifier, you can also find in markets market. Water is very expensive on high altitude and if you buy plastic bottle then water gets cold very fast.
4) Get enough money for your whole trek in Katmandu because ATM in Namche Bazar has less withdrawn of money & pay more fees.

We contacted with Luxury Holiday Nepal which we can really recommend to every people who want to travel Nepal with luxury. Ram, our guide also spoke very good English and he was so much caring, friendly and professional.

Luxury Holidays Nepal is absolutely first class. The company has the highest qualified teams and guides who have best Nepal Tours and Treks experience. They have absolutely incredible trekking team on the ground of the Himalayas. Who thought you can get apple pie and pizza at base camp? In fact, our guide's baked us a cake on the last day of our trek to make it even more memorable. What a wonderful, outstanding, secure operation. All food was organic, clean and all water was boiled. I am so happy to travel with LHN and would be very much grateful to recommend them for best Luxury Treks.

“16 day Everest Base Camp Trek”

“16 day Everest Base Camp Trek”

Rating:  

At first I was a little hesitant that I had booked the trip with an unknown overseas company but I should not have worried, from the beginning it was so easy to arrange and liase with the LHN people via email. 

Upon arrival in Kathmandu we were greeted by our driver outside the airport (what a drive) and taken to a great little hotel in Thamel where we met Shishir and our fellow trekkers! I was so nervous and culture shocked but everybody there made it so easy for us, especially our great trek guide, who I still keep in contact with today, and our porters.

I couldn't fault my experience. All lodges were of the greatest quality and I would definitely go with Luxury Holidays Nepal again, to do the exact same trek. Once isn't enough.

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.

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 to 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 which 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 of 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, that 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 is the best alternative taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. Where a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect.
