Being a 23 year old woman, I was nervous about which company to book my trek with when I was in Nepal. I ended up doing two treks with Raj because he was so great. The first one was in the month of October with one other girl friend. We did 8 days in the Annapurna Circuit. It was absolutely beautiful and Raj did his best to keep us out of the hikers traffic flow during the busy month. In the month of April I recommended my group of 7 to hire Raj and Rabin to take us on a 6 day trek to Langtang. Raj's experience helped lead us to the to the summit of Cherko Ri, 4984m, when other guides were turning their clients back. This was my favorite of the two treks and I would highly recommend it! Raj and Rabin are genuinely interested in their clients lives and cultures and eager to share their culture. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to become friends with such humble and kind spirited individuals. Raj will not just treat you as a client but as a friend. There is no challenge Raj is not willing to take on, and safety of his clients is very important. My final suggestion is to hire sherpas to carry your backpacks. I carried all my own things on both treks, and it was a great experience but extra exhausting. The extra cost will be worth it!
Trekking with Rabin along Langtang and Helambu was a wonderful experience. We have known him and his brother Rajesh for 15 years. At that time Rajesh was our guide to the Everest Base Camp. It was a unique experience to trek to his family’s farmhouse in the mountains and stay with them for a couple of days. They were so friendly, honest and hospitable. All our expectations in the trek 2016 became true. Everything was well organized. All the paper work and the organization previous to the trek were done fast and without much ado. We even let the company book our hotel in Kathmandu and realized that we got excellent accommodation for modest price. Transport to the start of the trek was well organized and good. Rabin knew so much about the landscape, the mountains, the various tribes along the trek and their cultures. He was always reliable, well humored and trustworthy. Rabin paid attention to what we wanted, to where we wanted to stay and any wishes along our trek. He well looked after our porter, too, which is important for the entire team. When I got sick in a lodge once he looked after me very well. We were never afraid to be cheated by him or his brother. We strongly recommend this company. In November 2017 we are planning our next trek with them. Hans, Hamburg, Germany
