Returning to Nepal: the most fun we have had anywhere in this world Message from Wildland alumni after returning from a custom trip to India and Nepal, planned by our Asia expert Laura Finklestein: Dear Laura,   Debbie, Jesse and I returned home safely.  We have had some really great trips in our lives, but this was the best.  Outstanding, fantastic.  Despite the ungodly heat and monsoon rains, we never had a better time.  Everything was seamless without any aggravation or confusion.   Your itinerary was perfect as regards what we wanted to see...
