Excellent trip, thank you! Phurba was a fantastic guide, answering all our questions, always getting us a nice room for staying in and making everybody laugh! Gyan was also a great porter and guide, always looking after us. Both Phurba and Gyan are a unit to Above the Himalaya, really great guys. Also thank you to Puru for arranging our car to Pokhara when our flight was canceled, and for helping us to hire really good sleeping bags and down jacket which kept us very warm. We loved the trekking and hope to come back soon – we have been asking Phurba about where to go next. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing holiday!
Nepal is a special place and I knew to go to that I was looking for an authentic experience with a trustworthy company. As a busy professional, my time was limited to 8 days in Nepal. Puru worked with me to ensure the best possible experience for an Everest sightseeing trek in that timeframe. At the last minute, when the weather looked poor in that region, he was able to nimbly and quickly shift the trip to Annapurna. I felt his pricing was competitive – but even more so, I was impressed by his honesty and the quality of his staff. Those little details like airport transfers, quality mid-range hotels, and the quest for knowledgeable guides is already taken care of. I highly recommend Above the Himalayas – book with them and all you’ll need to do is train for your trek and get the right gear.
We really enjoyed our trip to Nepal and thanks to Mr. Puru to make our journey a smooth one! Mr. Puru understands our needs and made very good recommendations for our trek which was from Lukla to Tengboche and Khumjung Village.
Our assigned trekking guide, Ramesh had been very kind and patient with us since we are not very physically strong to endure the long trek. Ramesh keeps giving us encouragement and moral support to make our trek successful one Thanks for everything to make our stay an enjoyable one
