When my friends and I came to Nepal, we knew we wanted to do some trekking and somehow the stars alligned and we ended up doing the Annapurna Circuit with Rab. I felt from the get go that Rab was experienced and had our safety in mind and that continued through out the 12 days we spent trekking together. Aside from being responsible and experienced it was also just great fun trekking with Rab, we were always able to have a laugh as well as some more serious and interesting conversations. Having Rab as our guide really made our trip to Nepal and I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking into doing any of the various trekking routes in Nepal.
We came to Nepal in April 2015 to trek around the Annapurnas with 4 friends.
Rabin was a great guide, and also a great friend given the circumstances : we were hit by a massive earthquake at base camp, and while a lot of people were panicking, he managed to make everyone stay calm, and get us to the other side of the mountain.
Thanks again Rabin for these 2 weeks, for which we keep an amazing memory !
We’ll come back ;)
We met Rabin through our hostel in Kathmandu. It was a great first meeting, he answered all of our questions and made sure we were prepared for our trek. From getting our bus tickets, to making sure we wouldn’t eat anything that would make us sick, to his knowledge of the geography, history and customs of the areas we hiked through we were blown away. He was always professional and always courteous. He was clearly well experienced in trekking, but his experience with people in the villages was what made our trek unique. He was welcomed by everyone and would tell us THEIR stories. This was an experience we could not have gained any other way. He is so intelligent and so funny. He was not just our guide, we like to think we made a friend in Nepal
Thank God we had Rab on our Annapurna circuit, he sorted so much,the route the best accommodation options, watched us for signs of altitude sickness and had a great laugh with us too. At one point I nearly slid down a snowy cliff edge and Rab jumped straight down (at quite a speed!) and anchored me saving me from the fall. I've already recommend him to friends without any hesitations!
I got in contact with Rab through Family Peace Guest House in Kathmandu, and I was so pleased with the quality of his guiding/organizing and the trip overall.
As I was travelling solo in early July (offseason), I had some concerns with the weather/ availability of certain amenities on the trek, but Rab put together an itinerary that gave me peace of mind 100% of the time, and we were blessed with great weather when it counted. While some travellers would be fine on the Annapurna circuit without a guide, trekking with Rab undoubtedly made my experience better, and I would recommend him to friends and family in a heartbeat. Great trekking, great times, and (low quality) pictures to prove it!
My wife and I really enjoy Everest base trekking with Ram thami, who was my porter.He took us up to the ebc. and thanks GNT team to organize our trip professionally. We hope see you in future for the other treks in nepal.
We did kanchenjunga circuit 29 days trek. We get basic tea house, we stayed at KBC one night . Personally, I really appeared Hemraj help and support thank you and see you soon. and thanks to Glacier Nepal treks to arrange this trekking.
I along with my friends drove to a place called Tatopani. We spent some quality time there enjoying the hot spring. Next day, we start our hiking towards Muktinaath. During hiking, we encountered some spectacular view of Mt. Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range. My guide 'Rab' was very kind and every enthusiastic person whom I ever met. During our hiking, he guided us thoroughly and professionally. He seemed having sound knowledge on his professional trekking. So, if you are planning to visit Nepal, we recommend Glacier Nepal Treks for your adventure in Nepal.
Rabin was amazing! I cannot overstate how great of an experience we had with Rabin as our guide on the Manaslu trek. He is professional while at the same time flexible and relaxed. A perfect balance that only comes with years of experience. Rabin let us customize our itinerary and change things on the fly as we hiked. When we had questions, he had answers but otherwise Rabin let us hike the hike we wanted.
As it was early spring on the Manaslu trek, snow levels were high and many groups were turning around before the pass. Rabin stayed optimistic and confident and got us over the pass!! This made our trek.
On a personal note, Rabin is intelligent and well read with excellent English. He was a pleasure to converse with about all topics from politics to economics to game of thrones.
You can hire a random guide when you arrive in Kathmandu, but from our experience the range in quality can be huge. With Glacier Nepal Treks the gauranteed quality and experience you will get is worth every cent you may have otherwise saved. Don't take the risk and hire an experienced guide!!
Did the EBC trek with Rabin and he was great! Kept a difficult hike entertaining and had us stay in nice accommodations with good food, which was much needed for the trek! Would recommend Rabin and Glacier Nepal Treks to anyone!
