Babu, Thanks for reminding me to forward you thanks from both my partner Emma and myself. We had a fantastic time undertaking the 10 day Annapurna track. The views, people and overall experience was brilliant. This was in no small way due to the experience, commitment and knowledge of both our porter and guide. I have attached a photo from the top of Poon Hill. It was great sunrise. I wish you all the success in the future. Kind Regards,

Emma and BlairUnited Kingdom

Dear Babu, I want to thank you for the well organized trip to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Cross Chola trek in October and November 2011. It was a great trip and I had a fantastic time in Nepal. Special thanks to my guide Maila, who supported me very well. Also thanks for organizing my helicopter flight out of Lukla when I was stuck there because of the bad weather. Next time I will definitely book again with Unique Path Trekking.” Best regards

We had a fanastic time trekking to Everest Base Camp with Unique Path. Everything was so easy to organise in advance, with Babu replying promptly and efficiently to our emails. Our guide Sanu was excellent, he took care of our every need and was really well organised, and very well informed always providing us with interesting information about the local area and people. He spoke excellent English and was good company. The amazing scenery of the Himalaylas was matched by the quality of service that we received from Unique Path, thank you for making our trip special. Ryan & Kate, Edinburgh Please pass on our thanks to Sanu, Kind regards
