          Great service and very responsive !
          Transport Hub helped me get ticket to and from Lukla. Their services are great with quicker responses on WhatsApp and easy flight change. I also had the chance to get a direct return flight to Kathmandu instead of Ramechhap.

          I recommend Transport hub nepal!
          I wanted to fly to Lukla, so Mr Naba Raj from Transport Hub in Kathmandu booked me the flights, outwards and return. And he organized me the transport from Garden of dreams, Kathmandu to Ramechhap and back. I am really satisfied with his service, next year again! Karin from Germany

          I recommend
          I took a helicopter ticket Kathmandu-Lukla and a plane ticket + transfer Lukla-Ramechhap-Kathmandu. The company helped me change my ticket back to an earlier date because I arrived in Lukla earlier.

          Highly recommend
          I ended up cutting my trip short due to fluid in my lungs, and they arranged everything. They moved my flights from Lukla (at no extra cost), and they got me transportation back to Kathmandu airport. There was only two of us in the van this time so I was able to lay down. It was awesome. Still a very rocky ride but better than the way there. We left around 10am and traffic was too bad.

          They took care of everything and were really responsive to all texts. They even helped me find a guide when Nepal made it mandatory. My guide was awesome. The ride out was really rough. Every seat was full. DO NOT SIT IN THE BACK OF THE BUS! I hit my head on the ceiling twice, but people in front didn’t move. Sit in the front.

          Transport Hub Nepal were super efficient and helpful booking flights to Lukla ( including changing the days of the flights twice) and booking the connection to Ramachap airport. Was very efficient - thank you!
