“Professional & Affordable Trekking” My husband and I just returned from trekking in Nepal (2/12-2/20/2017) and without hesitation we wanted to recommend Puru Timalsena and his team at Above the Himalaya Trekking. I have relied on Trip Advisor reviews and found Puru thru Trip Advisor. I gave thought to using a company directly in Nepal and leaving out the middlemen and it was so easy.
We just back from amazing Manaslu Circuit track with my son (23 years old), organized with by Above the Himalaya. Our guide Shitaram make all possible to sure that we get everything that we need. We impressed his kindness and intercession to lead trek the best way. After passing Larkey La Pass we get an unfortunate message so we need back as soon as possible back to Kathmandu.
Fantastic trip to Everest Base Camp!” The owner of Above the Himalaya, Puru, was extremely helpful when we were looking into setting up a trip to EBC, and made it very easy from the moment we got off the plane in Kathmandu, with everything taken care of from being picked up at the airport, to our hotel. The guide provided, Basu, was amazing and made our journey so much more memorable.
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
