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.
