About Above and Beyond Trekking - Day Adventures
For the past 18 years 'Above & Beyond Trekking Company', a Nepalese government registered tourism company, has provided thousands of clients with a safe and exciting holiday experience in the Himalayas at affordable prices. Above & Beyond Trekking Company is owned and operated by Shyam (Sam) Bahadur Pun, a local trekking guide who grew up in the foothills of the Annapurnas. Whilst growing up Sam travelled extensively throughout the Nepalese mountains. Sam enjoys sharing his love of travelling through these mountains with his guests. Based in Kathmandu, Above and Beyond provides a range of price competitive package deals for groups of two or more people and also caters for those who wish to construct their own itinerary. During his 18 years working as a guide/porter Sam has seen the hardships of village life in Nepal. He is very familiar with their struggles to overcome poverty, to obtain medical help for their families and to educate their children. Sam's aim is to support these villagers and so he uses only local porters, guides and sherpas for Above & Beyond Trekking. NAMASTE & TASHI DELEK!

Just need to sing the praises of Sam and his team at Above and Beyond Trekking. Myself and 3 mates just completed the Langtang Trail Trek. Unfortunately the wet season hung on a bit longer this year, but Sam’s intimate knowledge of the area enabled him to adjust our activities

This was my first trek in Nepal and I have to say Sam made this adventure a memorable one. Sam is an extremely organised guide who has access to all sorts of off the track experiences. He was always in control and mindful of how people were travelling. He has a great sense of
