In April 2013 we trekked to Tsum Valley and Manaslu Trekking with Pradip Tamang and two porters all the way round in 18 days (including the side-trip to Mu Ghompa in Tsum Valley and two rest days). It was a great and amazing experience. We had booked through the internet not knowing Pradip, but our first questions were answered so sympathetically and professionally that we booked through his company. It was a good decision. Pradip knows the directions very well, the organization was well-done and the guesthouses he had chosen were optimal (one of our main concerns was not to get any gastrointestinal diseases and with the basic infrastructure in this area - not at all comparable to Annapurna region - this is not as easy).
Pradip is speaking English and French so we had no communication problems and he shares his knowledge of culture and history in an enjoyable and entertaining manner. As a travel book writer I am very conservative with recommendations but Pradip did a really perfect job. So all the best for him and we will return and trek with Pradip again.
