This was an excellent experience for my group of four from the US. Puru Timalsena and his company, Above the Himalayas, was GREAT.

The trekking guide, Ramesh, was the best part of the trip. We had reasonable accommodations and food along the Everest view luxury trip.

I loved being in the Himalayas. The worst part of the trip was Kathmandu, where we started and ended our trip.

I would recommend this trek and company to anyone serious about trekking across the Himalayas!!!
