    Trekking with Wilderness Excursion in the Annapurna region

    Rating:

    We submitted a proposed Annapurna itinerary to multiple guiding companies. After receiving responses from the various companies, we chose Wilderness Excursion. It was the most responsive to our specific requests for our trip to Nepal. In planning our trip, Pradip was excellent in responding to our questions and preparing us for the trek. Pradip was also our guide. He was an outstanding guide in numerous ways. He was extremely knowledgeable about the sites and particular mountains we saw on the trek, he made an extra effort to ensure that we had good accommodations at the various lodges, and even made sure that our seats on the plane ride from Pokhara to Kathmandu were on the left side so we could get great views of the Himalaya range. It was both the big and little things that made him the perfect guide to accompany us on our trek. He was there when we needed him or had questions, but he also gave us times to hike without him by our immediate side (although he was never far away). Pradip always had a smile and was a joy to have as our guide. Our entire time in Nepal was perfect and went without any glitches. Without hesitation we would use Wilderness Excursion again and unequivocally recommend it.
