Kathmandu and Pokhara Nepal day hiking
Star Star Star Star Star

Puru and his team were fantastic to work with. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time for a trek. But he created an excellent Kathmandu and Pokhara Nepal day hiking itinerary on a budget. We didn’t know what to see in Nepal, and we saw so much quickly.

Once we arrived in Kathmandu, they took care of all the details, including hotel, flight, and hiking bookings. And when we had tweaks to our schedule, Puru was highly flexible.

We highly recommend Above the Himalaya, and next time we’re in Nepal, we will call on Puru again.
