Above the Himalaya organised such a great tour from the beginning to the end. Having alot of questions before the trip Puru provided all the answers clearly and promptly. Providing our group with a very experienced tour guide, Purna was a very pleasant, easy going and a really solid and reliable guide. His knowledge of the surrounding mountains and Nepal... More

I can not rate Above the Himalaya highly enough! Fantastic trip and excellent customer service prior to arrival. Great clear, quick communication via email with Puru (managing director) before arriving and happy to answer all our questions. Once in Nepal we were looked after well with an outstanding guide Purna and very friendly porters. Our trek went smoothly and we... More

My husband and I recently completed the Everest Base Camp trek (3/3 - 3/16/17) with ATH and had the time of our lives - and a big part of that was because Puru handled the details with aplomb, leaving us free to simply enjoy the trek! Puru was very professional and responsive, and organized everything from our pickup/dropoff at KTM,... More

I decided to tick off number 1 on my bucket list and go to Everest Base camp in October 2016. Overwhelmed by all the trekking companies in Kathmandu, Puru's website jumped out (lots of info and professional look) I e-mailed him and received a reply within hours. He answered all my questions and within a week my 2 trips were... More

Me and my friends from Dubai had a wonderful experience with ‘Above the Himalaya Trekking’. This company and every staff member went above and beyond to make sure we had the most exciting, safe, comfortable and informative tour in Nepal. The key person in contact was Mr. Puru. We were made to feel at ease as all our queries and... More

My husband and I just returned from trekking in Nepal (2/12-2/20/2017) and without hesitation we wanted to recommend Puru Timalsena and his team at Above the Himalaya Trekking. I have relied on Trip Advisor reviews and found Puru thru Trip Advisor. I gave thought to using a company directly in Nepal and leaving out the middlemen and it was so... More

I contacted Puru at Above the Himalayas for a cultural tour and not a trekking tour. He was extremely efficient and patient in answering my many emails and questions. He arranged the Everest flight (a must! ignore the negative people!) for me which is no more expensive than booking directly, a guide in Kathmandu for the 6 UNESCO sites we... More

We used Puru's company in 2013 & had no hesitation in using it again this year for our EBC via the 3 High Passes Trek. As usual everything was organised in an efficient & friendly way. Puru's communications via email was excellent. We requested our previous guide Purna & this was organised for us. Purna got his brother Tika to... More

Myself and two friends - three 20 somethings lads from Ireland, went on a guided trek to Everest Base Camp with Puru's company. Puru organised everything for us, making it truly a hassle free experience, so we could concentrate on the hiking (and drinking). The real star of the show for us though was our amazing guide, they call him... More
