Went here in May. First time taking a trek like this. The group at Above the himalaya trekking was excellent. Pick up at the airport, hotel accommodations, preparations and supplies. All top notch. The guide we had was phurba. Excellent, knowledgable guy. Very serious about his job and your safety. The provide much of the equipment including sleeping bags, down jackets, climbing boots, rain poncho. Nothing was cheap, all first class stuff. Through out the trek the guides and porters were fantastic. You really become a little family, going through the tough days, spending all the time together, it bonds everyone. Found some new friends, both with the fellow climbers and the guides. The reviews for these guys are all positive, and there is a reason for that. They take their time, do things right and the feeling could not be better. I strongly suggest you try these guys if you are deciding. If I go back, would be no other group I would spend it with. Great job guys.
My friend and I had Puru arrange for porters and a hotel for our trek from Lukla to Tengboche. The porters provided did an excellent job. They were helpful and very attentive to our needs.
When an emergency arose back home that required an immediate return, Puru personally got the things we left in our hotel in Kathmandu, and met us at the domestic airport terminal to give us out things, and to give us a ride to the international terminal.
This is truly a first rate outfit with great people and service above and beyond what was contracted for.
Today me and my friends went to Everest Base Camp and around the Annapurna Circuit trekking with our guide Purna. We had a great time and got lots of help getting up and down in the mountains. We had a few altitude problems which we get lots of help with Purna answer all our question and let us order breakfast from our bed, The porters were ever cheerful carrying all our gear and keep to have us dancing each night
