      Highly recommended

      It was a beautiful flight tour. I didn’t have to worry about anything as everything was properly organized by welcome Nepal treks. The car pick up was on time and I was dropped safely at the airport. Our flight was delayed by three hours but I was completely satisfied as I got to see the beautiful mountains views.
