Dear Mr. Babu Sitaula,
I am very content with Unique Path trekking; the tour was well organized, the trek well managed. Above all, all deadlines were met exactly. I can't send a group photo, because I was alone. But I send you a photo from the base camp. I wish for you and your company all the best for the future. Maybe we will trek together once again. Regards,
