Hope all is good in Nepal and business is doing really well. Apologies re the delay in sending this email….wanted to pass on our sincere thanks to Unique Path Trekking for arranging and organizing our Everest Base Camp trek (17th – 30th September). It was definitely an experience and one that would not have been the same if it had not been for everyone concerned from Unique Path. Can you please pass on a very special thanks to Ram who looked after both Steve and I so well. He went beyond his duties as a guide and gave us an insight into other aspects of life in the mountains and Nepal which helped us get a better appreciation for things and added another dimension to our trip. His experience and valuable advice in handling all kinds of situations like weather, health issues relating to altitude sickness and our general safety and well-being was greatly appreciated. Please pass on our regards to Ram and our best wishes to him, his wife and daughters – hope they are all well. Also please ask Ram to pass on our hello and special thanks to Lokhinder – our porter. Again he went beyond his duties as a porter, and ensured that we were ok throughout our trip. Both Lokhinder and Ram helped make our trek what is was – a memorable experience which they will always be a part of. I have attached a few pictures of our trek which I would greatly appreciate if you could show it to Ram and if possible print out a couple so he can give to Lokhinder when he sees him next. Babu, I hope you don’t mind but I have taken the liberty of sending you some feedback plus a query.

I have done the Gokyo Ri trek and the Annapurna Base Camp trek with Unique Path and both were great! I found the staff, guides, and porters associated with Unique Path to be very organized, professional, knowledgable, highly safety-conscious, easy to do business with, and a lot of fun. I highly recommend Unique Path!!!

We spent 17 days trekking the Annapurna circuit accompanied by Suresh. We found him to be an extremely competent, kind hearted and friendly companion. He assisted us greatly in all areas and ensured that our time was most enjoyable. We have found Unique Path to be a highly reputable and professional company and we would recommend their service everyone.

Dear Babu Thank you so much for a great trip, we had a time of our lives. We did the the Annapurna circuit last year with them, and the Everest/Goyko trek this year. The trek this year was a bit more difficult and very cold, but fantastic. The views were amazing. Thank you Babu for making it a very memorable trek. We really appreciated you coming with us again. We thoroughly enjoyed the trek, due to your sense of humour . We loved the scenery and the people we met along the way. We would recommend this company to anyone who wants to visit Nepal. They are very professional and informative. We are now thinking of doing the Langtang region, and of course, it will be again with this company. Thank you again so much Babu, and we will see you again in the next year.” Kind Regards
