Upper Mustang Tiji Festival Trekking

My 10 year old son and I were in the care of Above the Himalaya Trekking for the entire month of May 2010. We had been working with Puru for months prior to our arrival in Nepal.

All communication was of the upmost professionalism, clear, prompt, and warm.
Puru has a wonderful staff and all we met made sure our trip was running well and would be memorable. I should say also that when we arrived the country was under a Maoist strike and as such one would think all kinds of new difficulties would be present. If they were Puru did his best as we really did not experience any negative experience.

I am also grateful for getting to know this energenic business owner. Puru is giving back to his community and country. I am very glad to be doing business with such a conscientious person. All the best to his company and I would highly recommend to anyone the services they can provide.

Exceptional Service

Puru and his team are the best. Puru arranged a tour of Chitwan National Park and a trek to Mustang for the Tiji Festival, His team were all fantastic. They spoke very good English and were always able to make accommodations for our needs.
Part of the way to Mustang some of us decided we would like to ride ponies for part of the trip, they found a wonderful horseman in Tenzing, featured in a National Geopgraphic documentary on Mustang. The guides became like family to us on the trek, singing and laughing the whole way, no matter what curves we threw them.
The tour in Chitwan was a bucket list one for me.
Puru is a true gentleman and always ensured the best service and accommodations for all of us.

Best Agency for Upper Mustang Trek - Highly recommended

At the beginning of October, we visited Upper Mustang trek, Nepal and we decided to trek with Above the Himalaya. I chose this company based on excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and now I can say that this was a good pick.

Prior to our trip, communications with Puru, the Manager, had been very smooth. He responded to my numerous questions patiently and very promptly

While in Nepal, Puru and his staff took good care of us: we were picked up and dropped off at the airport, accommodation, airfares, bus tickets were all booked by the agency. On the trek, there were just the two of us, plus our guide and porter so we received very personalized service. Our guide Purna, did everything to ensure we have the best trekking holiday ever. He was very attentive, had a good knowledge of the mountains, local people, and their customs. Mustang was amazing. Breathtaking views of beautiful people and most importantly – not many tourists.

Many thanks to Above the Himalaya for making our holiday a very memorable one and hope to visit again.

Upper Mustang Trekking with best guide and porter

I worked with Puru and his staff on a 3 week trip to Nepal. He arranged a jungle tour of Chitwan and a trek to the Tiji Festival in Lo Manthang, Upper Mustang. Puru’s staff is unrivaled in their commitment to ensuring the best trekking experience for their clients.

Despite issues caused by the weather and the Maoist strike, they were able to give us a wonderful and easy vacation to this beautiful country. Always there to assist and care for us, Puru was a true professional.
