This is my second trip with Rabin and I am already looking forward to a third trip with him soon. That show how much I value his services, his extensive experiences with the treks, his honesty and of course, the great supporting staffs he have. I feel safe and well taken care of with Rabin as my guide. He is a man with integrity and deal in a most honest way with us. This is unlike lots of horror stories you read about guides and tea-house owners collaborating to fleece hikers. We pay exactly what we consumed at the tea-houses based on the published menu prices, no more and no less. With Rabin, there is no hidden cost.
With more than 20 years of trekking experiences, he gave good advises on the route and safety measures to take. For example, he insisted that we started off early on a particular day so that we will reach a section with ice-sheet before the ice started to melt and traversing the ice-sheet becomes dangerous and difficult. We have a large team of porters and assistant guides to take care of our team of 12 hikers and everyone on Rabin's team have been extremely helpful and friendly. My teenage son enjoyed playing Uno and sliding down the ABC icy slope with a teenage porter, a fellow hiker who has walking difficulties was supported all the way by assistant guides and porters and our meals were all ordered in advance so the group don't have to wait long for food to be served.
If you feel tl;dr, please skip to the last line. My name is Patibut Preeyawongsakul. I have been trekking since 2012. I do either individual trekking or going with mountain guide. I was with Rabin on Annapurna Trekking in Dec 2015. Not only on the mountains, but also roaming around in the city. I was with him for totally 15 days. By 4 years of my trekking around Asia (and a little hiking in US), Rabin is the best mountain guide so far. Rabin knows how to take care any kind of trekkers from slow ladies to teenagers. Luckily we didn't need his first aid kit which he always carry it in his backpack. He's expert in almost mountains' information in Nepal (including sometimes Tibet). He can calculate trip's timing very precisely.
We could change itinerary on the way we walk without affecting flight schedule (we had one more day on the base camp last time.) Though, His skill still not matches his humbleness and hospitality. I had been seriously discussing with him for 6 months with nothing guarantee I'd go with him, but he happily helped me decide which route to take. He frankly showed the cost breakdown before we make final decision. He welcomed us at the airport, and all of my team had his souvenirs on the day we flew back to our home country. If you want a short review, Hire this guy. 10/10 would go with him again.
