I have been a regular visitor to Nepal for the last ten years. I have completed several treks, among them Mt.Everest Base Camp. I also did Gokyo Lakes, the Annapurna Circuit, and Poon Hill, to name a few. All gave me new experiences, adventures, and challenges. I hired various Porters and Guides for those treks.

But nothing comes close to the fantastic support of the Above The Himalayas. Puru Timilsina and his cheerful team led it.

I have trekked the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea. I did the Inca Trail in Peru, so the bar was high for Puru.

His team to reach, which they did, and with outstanding professionalism. When I chose Puru and his team at the Above Himalaya Trekking Company.

I organized my Langtang/Helambu Trek in March/April this year; it was the wisest of all choices! From the first contact by e-mail to the last goodbye, he did the best job. Puru and his team demonstrated what a dedicated and excellent organization they are.

Puru adjusted my trek details and the date for departure, not once, but twice! My Guide, Phurba, and I met in Puru’s office the evening before my trek began.

Phurba raced to the office to meet me at concise notice, and I felt very comfortable with both him and Puru.

I had no hesitation in asking any questions. They were forthright and frank about my concern. They both gave me answers without hesitation. Thus confirming their skill and comprehension of English.

Because I am an older female and would be trekking alone, Puru based his choice of Guide on this information.
I am happy to say his decision to elect Phurba to travel with me was excellent.

Every moment of my trek was a fun and challenging experience, and I liked it. AND! Phurba delivered my morning coffee to me, as I want it daily, too.

I felt safe, secure, and most understood by Phurba, not the language; my Guide understood me and my needs. This was very important for me. I never felt pressured to walk faster if I didn’t feel like it.

The accommodation was always with a view to my degree of physical condition at the end of each day. Sometimes the ground, sometimes two flights of stairs!

Phurba’s cheerful nature, happy smile, and dedication to service delivery. He did his best service without faltering. His knowledge of the Langtang & Helambu area is comprehensive. He was sure to point out many new and intriguing things to me along the way. His help through deep snow over the Laurabina Pass was also appreciated!

The food, accommodation, and distances we trekked daily were all in sync. He did my requirements daily; Phurba is a mind reader.

My whole trek was an experience I will never forget, mind reader, as ‘My best trek yet.’ The final detail was that Phurba came to the airport to present me with the creamy silk scarf. It was called a Karta to ensure my safe and happy travels.

As I departed Nepal. I will be e-mailing Puru when I am ready to do my next trek. They have no reservations about recommending their service to all people. There are no age limits for those of all ages and statuses.

Lone females can feel secure and safe. By contacting Puru to organize their trek or travels. Thank you, Puru and your team, for providing excellent service. I had a marvelous and unforgettable Langtang Valley trek.

Our guide, Sitaram, was flexible and felt well for people and their differing needs. He was not pushy, but when required, he let us know what was needed. His local knowledge was good, and we had no problem with his English.

The porters, Indra, Ram, and Dhan, were extremely helpful and great with children. We had a great time and were looked after in a fantastic manner. We will recommend you all to our friends.

This was a fantastic Langtang Valley trek trip. We once met in Annapurna’s lower region, but this trip was memorable. Puru was swift in emailing and answering my many questions.

The trip was well organized. Our guide, Sitaram, was very flexible. He was very knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer our questions.

The children were also happy and relaxed with him. He would have told us more about what would happen the next day. He did when we asked, and that was good.

The porter was always polite and seemed happy and relaxed.

Overall, it is an excellent Langtang trek. We would return and go with “Above the Himalaya” again.

Excellent Langtang trek, my first in Nepal. Sitaram, the guide, was beneficial. He was pleasant and answered all questions with informed answers.

Excellent English. He had a nice sense of humor and was patient with our slow pace. The porters did a fantastic job. Again, they were helpful. Dhan was also very friendly and hard-working. Ram was also beneficial, young, and shyer.

I would suggest the itinerary with distances, rough times, and where we will stay. This would have been helpful.

The advice about what is available in nuts – e.g., the ability to change. It was a wonderful experience! We will be back with the rest of my family.

My sister and I went on the Langtang Valley Trek. We had very little time in Nepal; we prearranged everything with Puru. We exchanged a few emails, and he always responded on time.

He supplied all the information that we needed. When we arrived, Puru met us at the airport.

He took care of everything, starting from the hotel. He arranges all the treks, transportation, and everything. Everything worked as agreed, and there was no frustration or wasted time.

The guide that he hired for us, Kacey, was fantastic. He was very experienced, professional, and knowledgeable. He made the trip enjoyable and safe.

The porter that he arranged for us was smiley and pleasant to be with. The Langtang trek is beautiful; many tea houses are along the route, so that you can stop anywhere. The tea houses are basic, supply tourists’ needs and the people are amiable.

There are no words to describe the view and scenery. We had a great time and were sorry we didn’t have time for a longer Langtang trek. I am sure we will come back.

Excellent Trek to Langtang Valley.

I had the most beautiful experience on the Langtang Valley trek. It was organized by Above the Himalayan Trekking. Professional, knowledgeable, and prompt in replying. All my questions involved the tour, making the booking process much more manageable.

While my guide, Kamal, was well-versed in the terrain. I had no trouble whatsoever navigating the entire trek. He was friendly and approachable from the moment.

He picked me up from the hotel, all the way to the end of the tour, and when he dropped me back off again. He also accommodated my pace and made sure all was good. I was not having any difficulties throughout the Langtang trek.

The day tour around places of interest in Kathmandu Valley was well organized. The Valley is insightful from both a cultural and religious aspect.

When planning our trekking holiday about two months before. We sent several requests for trekking agencies to get a look at possible itineraries. Compared to many other agencies, Puru responded to our e-mails very soon.

It helped us fine-tune our upcoming holiday itinerary in a way that would suit us the best. We always got a response, and everything was well taken care of.

Even though we had some linguistic difficulties with our guide during our 7-day Langtang Valley trek, once we were back in Kathmandu, Puru took our feedback and also gave, e.g., giving us a free guided city tour of Kathmandu, which (which was excellent, full of detailed information and fascinating history!).

Puru’s caring and helpful attitude was evident. He was here for us 24-7 as my husband ended up in a hospital because of stomach flu. Not only did Puru help us get to the hospital, but they also spent time there waiting to ensure everything was okay.

We recommend this company to all trekkers.

Great trek to Langtang Valley
Star Star Star Star Star

We had a great time on the Langtang Valley trek. Puru answered our 1,000 emails. He adjusted our itinerary when particular plans fell through.

He organized so much for us. We did two treks with a guide-porter in Langtang Valley. They arrange transport to and from trailheads.

We did tours in Bhutan, seamless airport pickups and dropoffs, and comfortable accommodations. What more could you ask for?

We completed seven days of Langtang Valley Trek (Langtang Region) with Purna as our guide.

Purna was an excellent guide, considerable, and always smiling. Not intrusive and a lovely person.

We would recommend Above The Himalaya Trekking and their working team.

Thanks for the great trip.

On the trip to the Langtang Valley trek. We had a great time; our guide Ramesh, was fantastic and helpful.

They organized everything for us, and he helped anyone in trouble. Without our guide, I wouldn’t have finished the Langtang trek.

The porters were also fantastic. I would recommend Above the Himalayan Trekking. Their team is for anyone planning a trip to Nepal.
