I have been working in Nepal on and off for years, and met Rajan when he was assisting a friend with her charity work in the Langtang region. Rajan acted as a trekking guide for a trek I did, and was a joy to be with. Not only is he incredibly competent (with a proven track record of keeping trekkers safe even in difficult circumstances) but is great company. He always has a smile on his face, and has an uncanny ability to make anything you could wish for evaporate out of thin air. He knows the routes and teahouses round Nepal like the back of his hand, and is a natural mountaineer. I have referred friends to him in the past who always gave great feedback, those who went solo trekking with him reiterated what a joy he is to speak with and spend time with. Could not recommend highly enough!
In 2015, my friends and I had the incredible good fortune of having Rajan as our trekking guide. When a huge earthquake struck on the first day of our trip, Rajan took care of us, put our safety and comfort ahead of his own, and was always thinking about the next steps with an insight and clarity than comes from knowing the mountain environments and cultures inside out. He somehow managed to remain calm, smiling, compassionate and selfless in the face of disaster, and it was his attitude and aptitude that truly saved our lives. Since then, we've had many wonderful treks together, and I always recommend him to friends who are looking for someone to take them into the heart of Himalayan culture. Rajan is astonishingly clever, knowledgeable, and thoughtful, and at the same time he has a brilliant sense of joy and fun that he brings to every trek. There's a reason all his reviews are 5 stars! I can't emphasise enough how excellent he is
