it is the best hurrah of my whole life. Genuinely saying, making Everest base camp trek in short with luxuries and mountain flight around the world’s tallest peaks Mt. Everest is the least package that provide wandering views of giant Himalayan peaks. And that is what that made me mesmerized and stunned with the views of extremely snowed giant peaks. We had a Scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla while we had wandering scene of green landscapes and then ascending towards basecamp along with Sherpa peoples, mountains, forest and natural beauties was so amazing. My most epic was reaching to basecamp and looking to sky touching mt. everest. It was so funny when my cap was drop down while trying to look at the top up. And it was most exciting helicopter flight backing to lukla. This was so amazing to look at the Himalayan closely. The views from up was more elite than ground. In this trek, one thing that made me happier was the luxuries that LHN provided us. We were in Dwarika’s Hotel and it was so classic and luxurious. I think it is very hard to everyone for managing and offering such an incredible trip. Their efforts deserve 5/ 5 ratings. Hats off Luxury Holidays Nepal and thanks a lot! Hoping for another trip there gathering us together.Published: Sunday, August 11, 2019
Last month I completed Everest Base Camp trek with Luxury Holidays. Ii was very nice trekking that I had made ever. From airport, they brought me to Hotel Dwarika. It was very nice hotel. One person took me for sightseeing in Kathmandu. He was fluent English speaker which was much supportive for me to understand their guidance and information.
They provided professional guide and porter. Those guys were very nice. I was very tired and I didn’t even able to walk carrying my so small bag while we are near to Everest Base Camp. At that time both guide and porter help me. When I thought that my trip was so boring, they helped me to complete this trekking.
I appreciate the help and support they show me. Thank you very much Luxury Holidays for bringing such an amazing trip for me. It will be my pleasure to reconnect with you for my next trip.
It was so amazing trip that we completed last year. we had planned to complete the everest base camp trek on our vacation. we found luxury Holidays Nepal online and inquired. their response was so quick and they also arranged so quick and well.

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.
