Langtang Valley Trek April 2007.

My sister and I went on the Langtang Trek. We had very Little time in Nepal, we prearranged everything with Puru.We exchanged a few emails and he always responded quickly and supplied all the information that we needed. When we arrived Puru met us at the airport and took care of everything, starting from the hotel in the Thamel and right through the trek, transportation and all. Everything worked as agreed, and there was no frustration or time wasted. The guide that he hired for us, Kacey, was fantastic, very experienced, professional and knowlegeable.He made the trip extremely enjoyable and safe. The porter that he arranged for us was smiley and pleasant to be with. The Langtang trek is beautiful, there are many tea houses all along the route so you can stop anywhere. The tea houses are equipped to supply tourists' needs and the people are very friendly.

There are no words to describe the view and scenery.We really had a great time and were sorry that we didn't have time for a longer trek. I am sure we will come back.

Langtang Valley Trek

This was an awesome trip. We had been once before in the lower region of Annapurna but this trip was special. Puru was very quick in emailing and answering my many questions. The trip was well organized. Our guide Sitaram was very flexible and very patient.

He was very knowledgeable about the area and was happy to answer questions. The children were also happy, relaxed which may be he would have told us more in more detail what would be happening the next day. He did when we asked that was good. The porters were always polite, seemed happy and relaxed.

All in all an excellent trek, we would back in the “Above the Himalaya” again.

Langtang Valley Trekking April

When planning our trekking holiday about two months prior the actual holiday we sent several requests for trekking agencies to get a look of possible itineraries. In comparison to many other agencies, Puru responded our e-mails very soon and helped us fine-tune our upcoming holiday itinerary in a way that would suit us the best. We always got a response quickly and everything was well-taken care of.

Even though we had some linguistic difficulties with our guide during our 7-day trek, once we were back in Kathmandu, Puru took our feedback extremely gratefully and also seriously, e.g. giving us a free guided city-tour in Kathmandu as a compensation (which was excellent, full of detailed information and fascinating history!). Puru's caring and helpful attitude was obvious; he was there for us 24-7. As my husband ended up in a hospital because of a stomach-flu not only did Puru help us with getting to the hospital but also spent time there waiting with us to make sure everything was ok.

We recommend this company for all trekkers.

Puru patiently answered our 1,000 emails and adjusted our itinerary when particular plans fell through. He organised so much for us: two treks with guide-porter, one in Poon Hill, one in Langtang; transport to and from trail heads; flights and tour in Bhutan; seamless airport pickups and dropoffs; comfortable accommodation. What more could you ask for?
