      We enjoyed every moment of this tour

      I and my wife visited Nepal in March of 2020. It was our memorable tour in Nepal. From our arrival at Tribhuvan Airport, They took us to the Hotel in Thamel. The hotel was really clean and comfortable. Our tour guide was Sarita. She is friendly and helpful.  The next day we visited Chitwan, This city is really rich in diversity, ethnic groups, and culture. Chitwan is one of the best and most beautiful cities for me. After sightseeing in Chitwan, We move to Pokhara for Paragliding, Bungee jumping, Zip flyer, and hot air ballooning. After finishing these amazing activities in Pokhara, We move to (Kali Gandaki River) Kushma for rafting. Rafting in the Kali Gandaki river was amazing. We did the rafting safely. The rafting guide is very helpful for us. He really takes care of us during rafting on the Kali Gandaki river. After we finished rafting, we moved to Pokhara for another trip. We visited  Fewa lake, Mahendra Cave, Historical temples, and many more in Pokhara. Pokhara is rich in natural beauty. We enjoyed every moment of this tour.

      We are happy with the services of Luxury Holidays Nepal. Hope to go again for a tour through LHN with the same guide.
