Best Everest Base Camp Trek- Karie Annie, Canada
Everything was well organized and taken care of with Sublime Trails so we could just relax & enjoy our trek. From the moment we arrived at the Kathmandu airport our guide Rishi was waiting with a sign with our names on it. He shook our hands and greeted us with "Welcome to Nepal" Rishi and a driver took us to our lovely hotel in Kathmandu where we met with Ram, the owner of Sublime Trails, and paid for our Trek. Ram made arrangements for a city tour of Kathmandu for the following day which was great to learn about Nepal's culture. That night Ram met with us again to take care of any last minute preparations for our trek - hiring down jackets and sleeping bags, etc. Our trek to Everest Base Camp was incredible because of our awesome guide Rishi - he has an amazing sense of humour and loved playing cards and showing us his magic tricks. Our porter Kumar was full of energy and always smiling. Talking with other Trekkers on the trail we could easily tell we made the best decision to book with Sublime Trails. We loved that we had our own private tour, we weren't packed into a big group like other Trekkers and we planned our trek date completely around our travel plans, no set schedule. Ram and his team take care of everything beginning to end. When we returned to Kathmandu, Ram took us out for a farewell dinner to celebrate our accomplishment and provide feedback on our trekking experience. It's obvious Ram goes above and beyond to genuinely care for his customers.
We highly recommend Sublime Trails for trekking in Nepal!!!
Thank you so much to Ram for all the arrangements and to Rishi & Kumar for a fantastic trek!
A warm-hearted and extra-ordinary trekking arrangement by Sublime- Goh Siew Lin, Malaysia
I am very appreciative of what Sublime had organized for our Annapurna Circuit Trek happened in October 2015.
Originally we had 16 members confirmed to participate in the Annapurna Circuit Trek which is scheduled to take place in October 2015. Unfortunately, the earthquake in April 2015 had a scared majority of the teammates and reduced the number of members to six of us.
Facing the challenge of the reduction in group size and the possibility of changing trek operator had never reduced the sincerity of Sublime to make the trip happened for us. Day by day in the process of discussing, planning and negotiating with Ram for the trip to take place, the sincerity, the positive attitude, the knowledge and most importantly his passion to make the trip happened for us and his passion to the Nepal travel industry has gained my respect.
During our 13 days with Sublime, the warm-hearted, friendly, caring, fun and loving assistance provided from the porters to the guide had truly made this as one of the memorable trekking experience and a knowledgeable trip for six of us. Ram and his team have provided us an incredible support when one of our teammates struck with AMS when we crossed the Thorong La Pass. We are truly touched with their help. I highly recommend Sublime to anyone who looking for an enjoyable and memorable trekking experience in Nepal.
Annapurna Circuit with Sublime Trails - A Fantastic and Unforgettable Trip- Kok Siong, Malaysia
Six of us, James Ooi, Yuen Hoong Chin, Yee Tuck Heng, Tan Teck Kang, Goh Siew Lin and I engaged the service of Sublime Trails Pvt. Ltd. during our recent Annapurna Circuit Trekking (1 to 14 Oct 2015).
Ram Khadka and his teammates, Suman, Prakash, Kiran and Dinesh of Sublime not only very professional and experienced, but they are also very supporting and caring. They had done more than enough for us. We built the trust and friendship during the trekking. For those traveling to Nepal in near future, we strongly believe Sublime is your good choice
Marvelous and Memorable- Lynn Chen, Singapore
The itinerary that Sublime Trails, namely Ram and his team of Porters provided were all that I ever wanted to explore in - trekking on the snowy mountain, homestay on the mountain, visiting Buddhist monasteries, learning the living culture of a Nepali and not forgetting the Canyon Swing! Being an amateur and a really slow trekker, it was raining and dark on the snowy mountain, I was in awe of appreciation when I saw the Porters walked on the edge of the cold mountain for my best safety!! Every day was ended with a hot bath and a warm dinner in a cosy dining hall...very warm hospitality from the Nepalese indeed! Most of the meals were meat-less, But! Not to worry for meat lovers like me as the resourceful Ram would have a way with all your needs, definitely. We couldn't have completed the 6days Helambu trek of the mountain beyond mountain with great Himalayan views without Ram and his Porters, providing 101% of their expertise, patience, commitment and their singing of the Nepalese songs! Kudos to Sublime Trails - Ram and Team!
Experienced and friendly Sublime Gang !- Xavier Lim, Singapore
Very experienced guides that can answer your every question you throw to them, be it farming methods, local festival, seasonal changes, religious traditions.
very accommodating to our request and cater to our needs. some of us went over earlier and he did the extra planning to let them tour different places when the main group arrived for the city tour. we felt comforting to be in this tour group as Ram and his team is very helpful throughout the trek, voluntarily helped us on challenging paths on rocky slopes and slippery snow.
practically become our friend instead of a guide!
A professional, interesting, knowledgable, friendly and fun guide!- Anna Podlewska., United Kingdom
I traveled with Ram as my tour guide in Nepal on a ten-day trek in the Langtang region. He was very knowledgeable about the areas we walked through an extremely professional, ensuring that I was feeling ok and comfortable for the whole trek. However, the best thing was that he was easy and enjoyable to talk to. He talked to me a lot about the culture, people, and society in Nepal and gave me a real insight into this fantastic country! I thoroughly recommend Ram and his team!!
Fun and pleasant experience with Sublime Trails- Julia Foo, Singapore
I spent a week in Nepal with 2 other friends and explored Kathmandu and Pokhara. Was initially apprehensive about traveling to a relatively unfamiliar place. However, the entire experience was pleasant, enjoyable and worry-free thanks to the seamless arrangements made by Ram. The schedule provided by was well-thought through-we got to cover many of the must-see attractions without once feeling too rushed or bored. Also, the guides who accompanied us to the attractions were knowledgeable and engaging, giving us interesting insights into Nepalese history and culture. Especially enjoyed the time in Pokhara, where we got to see the beautiful lakes, woke up to a view of the Himalayan range and caught the sunrise at Sarangkot.
Throughout the trip, Ram made sure we got to try the yummy local foods (even if it wasn't conveniently available) and made us feel welcome and at ease in Nepal by spending time over meals with us and making sure we were doing ok. He made it a point to talk through our itinerary with us, and worked around our needs and expectations. I'd look up Sublime trails the next time I'm back in Nepal, and would definitely recommend them if you're seeking for a fun, affordable, enjoyable and worry-free adventure in Nepal :)
Excellent first trekking experience !- Shana Tay, Singapore
We went on a 6-day trek, followed by bungy jumping, water rafting, and a one-day city tour. Almost the whole group of 9 were first timers in trekking.
Ram is very experienced. He could name us every tree or flower that we asked about. We were also very grateful that he and his team of assistant guide Suraj and porters went out of their way to help us fulfill, not just our needs but also our whims - running around the mountain village to hunt for a chicken because we talked about craving for meat. During one of the toughest days of the trek, the porters, who have already accomplished their job for the day, voluntarily left the comfort of the tea house to accompany a few of us slowpokes through the last bit of the snowy rainy dark night, giving us more light and encouragement to go on.
I also liked that Ram takes care of his porters and does not make them carry too much load, unlike some of the other poor porters we saw on the way. And the tea houses we stay in use the more environmentally-friendly option of solar power heating.
