Our story

The year was 2007 and November when Mr. Puru Timalsena’s dream came true as the brand of  Above The Himalaya Trekking officially started. After a few years of guided trek in Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan and enormous training for trekking tours and mountain sickness, our friends inspired past trekkers worldwide to get a big name in the Himalayas. Our team of professionals has extensive experience in making various tours, treks, mountaineering expeditions, and community-based experiences successful in Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan.

Above The Himalaya Foundation

A percentage of the profit from our treks goes into the community to help with education and improve welfare. Above the Himalayas, Trekking has been deeply involved in the social welfare sector since its establishment. We are doing the trekking business and believe in our responsibility towards society as employers’ actual social contributions are made for the benefit of their employees.

We help communities design homestay programs and introduce new trekking itineraries in the countryside. We focus on helper training, education, capacity building, etc. Therefore, we always work to give something back to the areas where we have been working and are currently supporting schools, orphanage houses, recycling projects, and helping differently-abled people.

We opened The Himalayan Library at Sham Bhanjyang Higher Secondary School in Maidi Village Municipality, 19 km west of Dhading District headquarters and about 108 km west of Kathmandu. The Shami Bhanjyang School is the apex public educational institution among five villages: Maidi, Dhola, Khari, Nalang, and Salang, which is meant to be densely populated in the rural mid-hill area.

Experience The Himalayan Beauty of Nepal

Nepal has been a unique meeting place for mountaineers. It offers many things, from the lowlands (less than 100 meters) to Mount Everest—the world’s highest mountain at 8,848,86m. One can enjoy the country from a day of hiking to energetic trekking, jungle safaris with watching flora and fauna, adventures such as river rafting, bungee jumping, paragliding, swing, canoeing, cultural tours, etc. Everybody finds something to do here.

You can visit villages ten days from the nearest road or reach them in two hours. You can experience life virtually unchanged from hundreds of years ago, unfolding before your eyes as you journey safely and securely into the heart of the Himalayas. Come and share these beautiful things in Nepal with our team of professionals.

Above The Himalayas, trekking has never failed to amuse its clients with its pre-designed excellent packages. There is a variety of them, and each has been planned for safety and the satisfaction of the previous visitors. Their reviews have been respected in valuable ways, making every journey more improvised than ever before. We must gratify our visitors as the country has always succeeded in a million ways.

Our visions and mission are simple and transparent, making us one of the most chosen companies in the search index results. However, our efforts have eternally remained consistent, and people find this impressive and notable. We promise to take things even further to develop the country’s tourism industry.

Not everyone has been able to comprehend Nepal’s true beauty. This rare achievement requires traveling through places. We realized this years ago while traveling across the Himalayan foothills. This is why we thought of starting a company that could help visitors worldwide gain access inside Nepal to enjoy a hypnotic form of natural beauty.

Meanwhile, people can also perform various kinds of adventurous sports, such as bungee jumping, paragliding, and white water rafting, to mention just a few. After all, Nepal is also equally famous for its unique cultures and traditions that are unmatched by any place on Earth. If you have never been to the country, we assure you it’s worth visiting.

The way to go…..

Above the Himalayas, trekking focuses on quality rather than quantity for upcoming days, ensuring total satisfaction for our customers. We listen to customers build their itineraries using digital tools and give them our full advice.
