14 Day Annapurna Circuit + Tilicho Lake Trek = Awesome Times

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!


Best decision of our trek - bringing Rab!

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!


Amazing trek with the most professional guide

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 ;) Louis


Made our trip!

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.
