    Trek in the Everest Region

    We had a wonderful holiday in Nepal with Lumle Holidays. Everything was extremely well organised and we were delighted with every aspect, from the excellent guides to the well planned itinerary. The scenery was stunning and the whole experience added up to a trip of a lifetime. I’d thoroughly recommend Lumle if you are planning a trip to the region
