Lhasa Everset Base Camp Tour from Tibet
we just got back from Tibet-Nepal trip organize by Puru Timalsena from Above the Himalaya. we had great time, visiting fascinating and amazing places.
Puru Timalseng gave us very good service. from the permits to Tibet trough changes we wanted to make while traveling and recommendation he gave to us about the journey.
we were a group of 4 friends 50+, some of us very spoiled. Puru understood us very well and made a lot of efforts to make our journey the best he could.
Thanks a lot

Everest base camp trek
Where to start... What an amazing place! You cannot fail to have your breath taken away on this trek. Our experience was even better, given that before we even got on our flight out, we had the assurance that everything was being taken care of for us. All our internal flights, permits, hotels, trekking guide, tours, everything! We can't compliment the team at 'Above The Himalayas' enough.
On our trek our guide was called Shyam and he was nothing short of brilliant. He first of all managed to negotiate us through the chaos of Kathmandu airport and made sure we got our flight. No mean feat! from there on in he looked after us as if we were his own family. Nothing was too much trouble and took time answer all our questions. His wealth of knowledge and experience was nothing short of extraordinary. We are deeply indebted to him for make our trek so much more interesting and enjoyable.

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.

I will never forget this experience
Kathmandu and Pokhara Tour Day hiking
Puru and his team were simply great to work with. Unfortunately, we didn't have time for a trek, but he was able to create a wonderful Kathmandu and Pokhara itinerary for us on a budget. We really didn't have a clue about what to see in Nepal... and we saw so much in a short time.
Once we arrived in Kathmandu, all details seemed to be taken care of, including hotel, flight and tour bookings. And when we had tweaks to our schedule, Puru was extremely flexible.
We would highly recommend Above the Himalaya, and next time we're in Nepal we will call on Puru again.
