Rabi Thapa, Trustee (www.sacredsummits.com)


Rabi Thapa is CEO of Sacred Summits (P) Ltd. in Nepal. With over 25 years in the adventure travel business he has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience about travel in the Himalayas. 

He has been involved in establishing wildlife resorts, organising and leading treks and mountaineering expeditions, cultural and wildlife safari tours, rafting, mountain biking and motorcycle expeditions.

Rabi’s organisational  and people skills are exceptional. His long friendship with Maggie Burgess exposed him to the ill effects of leprosy after spending a month assisting Maggie with her research at the Khokana Leprosarium outside Kathmandu. He began to assist Maggie and Promise Nepal on a regular basis from 2005 and has become acutely aware of the needs of leprosy-affected people in Nepal. Rabi’s presence on the ground is key to the implementation and management of Promise Nepal’s initiatives in Nepal.
