For our first trek in Nepal, this was amazing. From the first point of communication all the way to the end. Meticulously organized, fair price, and most importantly, Rab was an awesome guide to be hanging out with. We not only got a great guide, had a ton of fun and learned a lot about Nepal, but made a friend for life!

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!!

It was a great experience with a lot of fun. I must say I have never experienced before like this. What a natural place to trek. Awesome view and pure rustic environment. Moreover, having great trekking staffs and helpful people with warm welcome tradition is just enhancing the plus point of my trekking. At the end thank you Rabin for guiding me so beautifully
