If we go again we definitely book again at Unique Path Trekking. Thanks a lot! Best Regards

Hi Babu, My trek on the Annapurna circuit is one of the few trips I have done that did not seem ages ago by the time I landed back at Heathrow. The complete service provided by you tem while in Nepal was great. I had been concerned that I may feel isolated as single trekker, but just me and my guide/porter worked fantasticly. It was truly tailored to meet my needs. I attach a photo of the movie hose in Manang. Achnge from the photos of the fabulous scenery that most people probably send. And one through the temple door at Pisang. I am happy for anyone to contact me for reference on how good the trip was.
