Kathmandu City Tour and Nagarkot Visit June 2012
Above the Himalaya is an excellent company for organizing my short and tight plans in Kathmandu and Nagarkot.
Mr Puru Timalsena is very prompt and efficient in communication and arrangement. I have to say that I am a very naggy, experience and extreme picky traveller. He had ensure that all my arrangement and requests are up to my expectations.
My trip in Kathmandu and Nagarkot is only 1.5 days. I managed to complete 95% of my requested sightseeing plans with the great, humble and experience nice driver "Ram". Though I requested for a female tour guide and end up having a male tour guide, I am alright with it as he is a very patient and nice male tour guide too.
The price quoted to me was also very good. Non of the operators were able to quote such rates except for one or two. However, I decided to take Above The Himalaya as Mr Puru has inmpressed me alot.
Last but not least, it was an overall pleasant and great experience with the combination of all in Nepal.
If I ever come back to Nepal again or any of my friends to visit Nepal, I will definitely approach and recommend this company to anyone.
Thank you very much for everything!
Annapurna Round trekking + Everest Base Camp Trek + Bhutan Tour May/June 2012
I booked 2 months of trekking/travel with Above the Himalaya Trekking and was extremely happy with my trip and the service I received. Puru (owner) is extremely professional, proficient and paid a lot of attention to my satisfaction from the start to the end of my trip. In addition, I had requested a few changes to the trip and Puru accommodated all of them. During the planning process, Puru ensured that the trip fit my needs and once I got to Kathmandu, he made sure that I had the best experience.
I would highly recommend Above the Himalaya for Trekking in Nepal and would book my trip with them again in the future.
Annapurna Ghandruk Loop Trekking and City Tour
We only had time for a brief holiday (10days) in Nepal. Idea to have at least a little trekking and stumbled on their website where brief trekkings were mentioned including ones suitable for kids (our daughter is 7 yrs) . We contacted them with a brief outline of what we would like to do - and got to our surprise still same evening response (despite time difference) . We liked his comments / suggestions and from then on it was basically some "fine-tuning" , we felt very comfortable. We'd arranged begin & end accommodation in Kathmandu and used their daytrips. And upon arrival in Kathmandu it was indeed all arranged - and even some very last minute changes were made (such as squeezing in a flight to Mt Everest prior to departure for Pokhara) , Accommodation organized was fully as per request (during trekking rooms with own bathroom) . Guide had good english knowledge. Both him and porter were very friendly and helpful . We had a splendid holidays and highly recommend Above the Himalaya

Kathmandu Valley Rim Trekking May 2012
My friend and I sincerely enjoyed the five day / four night trek around the Kathmandu valley. We were blessed with good weather and stunning views almost ever day. The guide and the two porters were very kind and helpful and together we managed to organise a 'plan B' whenever a sore knee required me to use of a local bus and to skip one leg of the trip. The trek through this very (agri)cultural valley and the conversations we had with our team gave us good insights into the lives of people in the area.
The accommodations were all well-chosen and, despite some quirkiness, had excellent views even at night time.
I can highly recommend this trek to anyone who is not an experienced trekker and who is interested in country, culture, nature AND people.
My only recommendation to the team: learn to tell more of the stories about what is happening along the way. It will enrich the experience for the guest in your beautiful country even more.

Everest High Passes Trek May 2012
I'm just back from trekking to Everest Base Camp with a friend and then trekking over the Three Passes on my own. Above the Himalaya was excellent. I found it via Trip Advisor after I discovered that my original choice – based on a review of web sites - was not a registered operator. ATH had multiple positive reviews from my TA forum search. So I emailed it, attaching my proposed itinerary. Puru Timalsena, the MD, almost answered the email in real time! That set the scene for our future correspondence. I felt like we were talking by phone but with the conversation being transcribed as we spoke. Very impressive. Puru's trekking knowledge proved to be current and accurate, even down to the little things like the variable cost (as you go higher) of hot showers and battery charging along the routes. That is just what you want when you are making arrangements - including sending deposit money - internationally. And propose to trek over 3 of the world's highest mountain passes, which are not for the faint-of-heart or lungs. (By the way, I couldn’t have done them or made EBC without Diamox, which is readily available over-the-counter in Kathmandu; my altitude sickness symptoms started at 4000 metres. I recommend the free daily 3 pm altitude sickness talk given by the medical clinic in Pheriche. And its medical treatment, which I sampled.) I immediately felt assured that I was choosing a reliable organisation that could deal with whatever would happen. And I was not disappointed throughout my trip. The entire experience was seamless from start to finish. Puru confirmed that what I wanted to do was feasible (and he proved to be correct), we were picked up at the international airport, as promised, Puru’s choice of Kathmandu hotel was so much better than the one I thought I wanted, the Kathmandu sightseeing trip and rental equipment pickup on Day 2 were great (rental down jackets were 50 NPR per day in Kathmandu but 150 NPR per day in Namche Bazaar, when I decided I needed one) the flights to and from Lukla were trouble-free, the choice of teahouses along the way was great and the trip finished with a drop-off service to the airport in plenty of time for my international departure. Our, and then my, guide (Syam) and porter (Porkuss) were excellent. I would definitely trek with them again. They were really good people. When there are not too many who don't get on your nerves after almost 3 weeks together! All in all ATH provided a faultless service; nothing went wrong, organisationally, and there was nothing more it could have done to give me a better trip. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I'm already planning what I can do in Nepal with ATH next year. Mustang, perhaps? I can't think how to give the company a better rap than with some repeat business.

Everest View Trekking May 2012
This is my first online review, I haven't been impressed enough to write one in the past but this company (Puru in particular) did well enough for me to write my first one.
Puru (who took care of my trip) met with me upon arrival and I did a 7-day Evertest View trip as well as traveling to Pokhura for a couple days. Puru always seemed to be watching how my trip was going, whether by meeting me in his office of calling the guide as we were trekking. Everything was well taken care of and worry free (and in the hustle and bustle of big cities like Kathmandu thats a blessing!). The tea houses were very enjoyable and the guide spoke good English. The guide watched my pace, answered any questions I had and make sure things were taken care of at the tea houses (meals, lodging, showers, etc.). Since everything was well taken care of it left me to enjoy everything else.
Thanks AHT and Puru!
