I would like to take this opportunity to thank and recommend a superb travel agent in Kathmandu who recently arranged a full three week travel itinerary for me and a friend travelling across Nepal .
Puru Timalsena is the Managing Director of ‘Above the Himalaya Trekking Ltd’ based in Kathmandu . Puru arranged a full three week travel plan for me and a friend in early 2008. He consulted us in great detail over MSN and phone to ensure our 3 week holiday was planned exactly how we wanted it.
Our three weeks began with an 8 day trek in the Everest region; Puru arranged all our travel details and flights and even met us for dinner in Kathmandu on our 1st night to ensure we had all the necessary details and to introduce us to our guide. Our guide Krishna was superb, perfect English and great local knowledge. Our trek was superb, accommodation was spot on and we completed a fantastic 8 day trek getting some great views of Everest and a superb taste of real Nepalese culture.
Puru again met us on our return to Kathmandu and got us prepared for our next trip which was a three night visit to Chitwan National Park . Again Puru arranged all our flights, transfers and accommodation at the fantastic ‘Tiger Top Resort’ in Chitwan.
The resort was great and Puru even managed to get us a big discount on the hotels normal rates. Safari was very good and we had the opportunity to see many Rhinos and other local animals.
Next we made our way to Pokhara, again Puru arranged a private car transfer which ran perfectly and arranged two days of activities in Pokhara including Paragliding over the mountains which left us breathless. Puru even phoned us each evening to ensure everything was going to plan!
Our final stop before heading back to Kathmandu was a three day visit to the ‘Last Resort’. Again Puru arranged all our travel arrangements and set up two great days white water rafting, Canyoning and bungee jumping. Three great days which ran exactly to plan.
Finally we finished the trip with a few days sight seeing in Kathmandu . Puru advised us on the best things to see and helped us to travel around the City.
With so many travel agents to choose from it can be very difficult to know who you can trust but Puru went the extra mile on every occasion to ensure our trip ran perfectly and I cannot recommend him enough if you are looking for help planning a trip to Nepal . Very reasonable prices to saving us money that we would not have saved if we booked direct.
