Trip leader


Suzanne Al Houby is best known as the first Arab Woman to reach the top of Mt. Everest as well as all Seven Summits. Many of the initiatives she pursued can be described as daring and innovative and, most, have one thing in common: she was told that she couldn’t do it. She did achieve her goals, though, and this combination of vision, passion, trust, and persistence is what Suzanne Al Houby is all about. Besides holding her personal records on the mountains, Suzanne also helped many others to break free of their own limitations. When Suzanne isn’t busy globetrotting, climbing mountains, or training for her next adventure, she is actively involved in local and international charities, inspiring future adventurers of all ages. Over the years, she honed her skills to coach and mentor people towards inner peace and freedom, and, as such, she leads a few select trips per year with a focus on spirituality and consciousness that complement the standard Rahhalah signature of adventure. Her favorite quote is “It is easy to be inspired, but it is not so easy to act.”
