In September 2016, I completed the Lantang Helambu 15 day trek organized by Wilderness Excursion. For the first time in quite a few treks in different countries, everything went as planned, from being met at the airport on arrival, up to the taxi back to the airport at the end of the trek. Pradip made sure I had all the permits and information I required, attending such matters in person.My guide, Suppa, was cheerful, energetic and patient with the many questions I asked, and made sure I was well fed along the way, even going as far as cooking meals at times. Good cook, too.
The teahouses chosen for each night were generally good, given that choice is limited, and the meals varied from good to excellent. Earplugs are recommended for those places with very thin walls. September turned out to be wet or cloudy, or both, so panoramic views were rare, but the scenery was spectacular anyway, and as always, the people along the way provided interesting encounters. I thoroughly recommend Pradip, Suppa and Wilderness Excursion if you are headed to Nepal.
