Everest Base Camp Trek - April
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.

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking December-Janaury
Excellent trip, thank you! Phurba was fantastic guide, answering all our questions, always getting us a nice room to staying in and making everybody laugh! Gyan was also a great porter and guide, always looking after us. Both Phurba and Gyan are an unit to Above the Himalaya, really great guys. Also thank you to Puru for arranging our car to Pokhara when our flight was cancelled, and for helping us to hire really good sleeping bags and down jacket which kept us very warm. We loved the trekking and hope to come back soon – we have been asking Phurba about where to go next. Thank you for a wonderful relaxing holiday!
Annapurna Base Camp Trek
I had the most excellent trip, more than I would have hoped for. The organization was very good - Puru re-arranged our trek and Chitwan tour after our flight to Pokhara was cancelled. Our trekking guide Phurba and porter Gyan were also very-very good. Phurba looked after us like our Nepali father and always made sure we had everything we needed and looked out for us on the trail. Gyan was so strong carrying all our equipments - we never would have made it to ABC if we had to carry it ourselves! Phurba always tried to get us the best rooms and stop at the best restaurants. Even when it was busy we didn’t have to share a room. Both Phurba and Gyan were fun to be with – very happy and always smiling. We spent many evenings with chatting with them. I would recommended with them to everyone trying to arrange a guide to trek in the holidays!
Everest Base Camp Kalapattar Trekking December
I'm just back from a trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar. I wish to thank Puru and his team for the perfect organization they offer; the human quality of the guides, their knowledge of the ground, and the exciting moments we have had during the whole hike.
I will not hesitate to repeat the experience to other Nepali locations, and I will apply to Puru's experience.
Thanks so much,
Annapurna Base Camp Trekking
My husband and me we are used to travel by our self so we were a little bit hesitating about making our trek in Nepal with a trekking company. Finally due to shortage of time we decided to take a porter-guide and arrange all the paper work /permits and TIMS/ as well as the airline tickets through an travel agency. After having read all the rewievs on TA we choosed 5 travel agencies and contacted them via Email. After few Email exchanges we decided to arrange our trip with Puru and his company. And we never regretted it! From the very beginning he answered all our Emails and questions very fast /sometimes I had had the feeling he never sleeps/. He was more than flexible than we decided to change our plans just 4 weeks before our arrival as we were afraid of flight cancellations to Lukla /at the beginning we were dreaming about EBC via Gokyo trek/. Puru arranged all the permits and TIMS as well as the tickets for our KTM-Pokhara flight and we collected them on our arrival day so we could start our trek the next day. Everything was as promised, our porter-guide Suresh was waiting for us at the Pokhara airport and arranged the taxi to Phedi. During the entire trek Suresh was a great compagnon, who answered all our questions and explained us about plants, animals, the mountains and the country. He was respecting our wishes as for trek itinerary, lodges etc. and he was always more than helpful with all the arrangements of the accommodations and meals. We appreciated his company and his sense of humor. It was thanks to his advises that we could extend our trek an make the trek to Poon Hill in the limited time we had. It was a wonderful trek and we would do it the same way with Puru and Suresh anytime again. Actually, I hope we will be able to make a trip to Nepal next time with our children as well and for sure we will arrange the trek with Puru and Above the Himalaya.
Puru and Suresh, thank you so much for our wonderful trek!
