I and my husband chose Pradip to be our guide in Nepal. We wanted to do Langtang Valley and he suggested a very nice itinerary of 17 days including the Tamang Heritage Trek and the wonderful Gosaikunda with its famous lake. The communication via email before the trek was flawless; he quickly replied all our emails and answered all our questions in a very kind and professional manner. Pradip is an exceptional guide, he took really good care of us and his English is extremely good. We loved to stay with him at a cup of tea and enjoy his stories about Nepal. He is from Tamang and he will give you a very good insight on the culture, traditions and religion in Nepal. We met him as our guide but left as friends. We definitely recommend Pradip and his services as top! We are grateful for the time spent with him and the amazing trek he helped us organize!
We hired a guide for the Tamang Heritage Trail in August 2016. Pradip came to our hotel to introduce our female guide. Because she was not so familiar with this trek, he also arranged a guide cum porter for us. The guides were very helpful and always went for safety. Because we were trekking in monsoon, it was necessary to change the route which was no problem. We have had a wonderful time with two reliable, friendly and well organized guides. I would recommend wilderness excursions / hire a guide to others with no doubt.
