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 Nepa
