Nepal best company for your Langtang valley trek

We are acquainted with Mr. Puru since 2008 for our Langtang valley trek and other treks to Nepal. We were very pleased with the excellent services we have received from him and his company during our several visits to Nepal, including accommodation, transportation, guides, and porters in the treks, city, and site visits.

Puru took care of all our needs, from the moment we stepped down from the flight until we left Nepal. He is responsible, reliable, and resourceful on all our trips to Nepal. We have brought a few ladies’ groups and all were taken care of well by guide and staff. It was nice to work with him all the time. We always knew we could count on Mr.Puru to find a solution to every question/problem.

We highly recommend Above the Himalaya and its services.

Langtang valley trekking Trip of a lifetime Thank you, Puru

When planning our trekking holiday about two months prior to the actual holiday we sent several requests for trekking agencies to get a look at possible itineraries. In comparison to many other agencies, Puru responded to our e-mails very soon and helped us fine-tune our upcoming holiday itinerary in a way that would suit us the best. We always got a response quickly and everything was well-taken care of.

Puru’s caring and helpful attitude were obvious; he was there for us 24-7. As my husband ended up in a hospital because of stomach flu not only did Puru help us with getting to the hospital but also spent time there waiting with us to make sure everything was ok.

We recommend this company for all trekkers.
