The BEST trip ever!!!

Trekking and visiting Nepal has been my #1 dream since I can even remember and expectation were high. Not only were my expectations met but it was even more incredible than I could've imagined. Rabin organized a 5 day trek to Poonhill for us and it was great. We absolutely loved all the guest houses we stayed in, all the places we were taken for food, and more importantly Rabin and Ram (our porter organized by Rabin) were super supportive, patient, and very very fun to hang out with. I didn't expect to laugh so much and have such banter which obviously made the trip even better. I can't speak highly enough of how helpful and friendly they were and what a great experience I had with Glacier Nepal Treks. We didn't have to worry about a single thing other than have the trip of our lives. We will be back!!
