Thank YouGebrille Stenek
Langtang Trekking in April
We found our guide sitaram to be flexible and had a good feeling for people and their differing needs. He was not pushy but when required he let us know what was needed. His local knowledge was good and we had no problem with his English.
The porters Indra, Ram and Dhan were extremely helpful and were also great with children. We had a great time and were looked after in a fantastic manner. We will recommend you all to our friends.
Excellent trek my first in Nepal. Sitaram the guide was very helpful, pleasant and answered all questions with informed answers. Very good English. He had a nice sense of humor and was patent with our slow pace. The porters did excellent job. Again they were helpful. Dhan was also very friendly and hard working. Ram was also helpful, young and shyer.
I would suggest that we are given an itinerary with distances, rough times and where we are going to stay. This would have been helpful. Also advice about what is available in nuts – eg ability to change.
It was a wonderful experience! We will be back with the rest of my family.
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.Peter Stanek

The services of guide and porter were good. They were above my expectations. They were responsible, helpful, friendly, and punctual. Thank you very much for the services. The agency is well organized with fast replies. I would definitely recommend its services. We felt very safe all the time. I also liked the food recommendations for best health during the trekking.
The schedule was perfect, well organized. I would like to thank all for the amazing experience.
Thank you so much Puru, Purna and porter.

I was very impressed by the professionalism. Our guide Purna provides us a great service, always very helpful and ready to answer all our questions. I felt very safe during the trekking; Purna was very attentive all the time, especially in tricky mountains. I am very happy about having chosen “Above the Himalaya”, I am 100% satisfied. Our porter was lovely, very friendly and helpful too.
Thank you for providing us an amazing holiday!! Thank you for Puru for replying too many doubts so quickly via email before the trek. Your arrangements were perfect; we did not worry about thinking.

Loved our Himalayan Adventure. Our guide Basu was very knowledgeable, friendly helpful and really looked after us. We were able to trust him why he is very important. He also has a great sense of humor and he had quite a few laughs together. His English was also very good and we had no trouble communicating.
Our porter Bikram was also very good, polite and hard working. He looked after me when Basu had to look after my sick husband and did a very good job. His English was also good.
Thanks for a wonderful holiday.
Everest Base Camp Trek March-April
Very impressed and happy with email communication prior to coming to Nepal. Puru always answered emails quickly and very helpful. Basu was fantastic guide- he was always looking after us especially when we got sick. He has good trust and confidence in him.
Impressed that we seemed to get some of the better rooms in the better tea houses/lodges. Happy that Basu tried to get toilet/bathroom in our room.
Very good tour and “best” guide. Bikram was also good porter-very polite.
A big thank youPeter Cox
Annapurna Circuit Trek - Nepal
We enjoyed our trek immensely. Phurba is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was also very flexible with our requests and questions. Ram and sunil our porters were very hard working and friendly. I will recommend this trek and company to my friends. Many thanks
Phurba Sherpa was an excellent guide and Ram and Sunil did a great job as our porters. Phurba was extremely attentive for the entire trip and took very good care of us both on the trail and each stop for the night. He always took our orders at the hotel and helped communicate to the hotel staff. We really enjoyed in the trail and hope to trekagain with him in the future. Thanks Phurba
Annapurna Circuit Trek
The Annapurna circuit trek with Phurba, Ram and Sunil was excellent! Phurba is an excellent, patient and knowledgeable guide. He was a great leader throughout the 8 days. He gave us lots of options on the trail and picked the best accommodation for us. I highly recommend Phurba and team to others.
Annapurna Circuit Trek in March
Annapurna Circuit March 18 to April 3 , 2014I started my web based trekking inquiries with another Katmandu trekking company. Because communication with this company was sporadic and unclear I switched to Above the Himalaya. Puru answered each email inquiry promptly and clearly. Skype was also used. I explained to Puru my idea of doing the Annapurna circuit on a solo basis. It was a risky journey for me. I'm am 65 years old, with post cancer and post heart attack. So why would I choose this challenging trip?......Because I needed this challenge?
Puru matched me with guide/porter Suresh. We travelled together for 15 days. I was free as a bird to listen and watch all around me because Suresh took care of all the details that might stress a foreign trekker. He carried my backpack, knew the quiet and clean lodges,expedited the meal orders, ensured tea stops and took care of all the paperwork at police checkpoints. These things were not my concern. He was my mentor in the ways of Nepali custom. I have the feeling that travelling in large groups takes away from connection with the local environment. Travelling by myself I was more inclined to hear and see all the subtleties around me. I remember the language and moods of Nepali village people, the smells of the pine forest, the spring flowering trees, the aromas of incense and simmering curries, the roar of wind and rivers.
Yes I took away more than I expected from this journey. It was a challenging trek. but the satisfaction and educations I received was priceless! Without the support of AHT the journey would not have worked for me. Always, I felt safe and cared for. THANK-YOU AHT
The upper Pisang to Manang was a favourite section, Stops in Kalopani and Sikha would make a more leisurely pace
Extra night in Pokara was an interesting addition, I travelled the same route with like minded solo Trekkers for several days. We shared daily experiences over evening meal
Annapurna Base Camp Trek
More than the trekking I enjoyed the company of Mr. Phurba, Nima, Sunil, Krishna and Pralhad and their excellent service. They made sure our trip goes well and took care of each and everything. The best people I have met in Nepal. I will remember this trip forever. I am sure I couldn’t have completed this trek without their help. I can’t forget their ever smiling face. Thanks to Mr. Puru for making all bookings and arrangements for us. Hope to travel with this team again. Thanks a lot and goodluck to aal of you.
Thanks and best Regards

Annapurna Base Camp - March
Tour guide, Phurba along with our porters Krishna, Neema, Pralhad and Sunil, took great care of us. All of them are hospitable and very nice people. For 5 days they took very good care of us. Right from the beginning to end they were with us helping us with our needs and guiding us when required. They never ate till all of us were full and finished. They introduced us Nepal culture and made sure we are very well taken care off.
Mr. Phurba, amazing person is all I can say. On so many occasions felt or some of us felt we can’t joit, he took our bags and motivated us to complete the whole trek.
Mr. Puru please specifies the equipment required for the trek as we were not, prepared for -5 and our friend struggled with shoes which you approved.
