Unique Path Trekking is an independent locally owned niche operator with a reliable track record and ‘hands-on experience’ of our destinations, and all this while we’re small enough to offer big treks with personal and old fashioned services that are pure and friendly in the spirit of adventure. Unique Path Trekking is affiliated to the biggest tourism Associations of Nepal, namely – TAAN & NMA, government recognized tourism bodies.
We always keep note of our trekking guests’ advice and never fail to implement practical ideas for the safety of our guests throughout the length & breadth of the Himalayas. Our trek itineraries are planned for slow ascent with ample time for your body to naturally settle into the high altitude. We just don’t compromise on the number of days in our itineraries to make programs cheaper in order to sell more holidays! The whole concept of our trips is to give you hassle free vacations that go beyond what you would have expected. We know you’ve come a long way to enjoy a holiday at your pace; and despite the safety measures we take, we make sure you also have your fun in the spirit of camaraderie with other members of the group.
At Unique Path Trekking, our deals don’t cut down on programs and services to the skeletal level that takes away the spirit and excitement of the trip; just to increase the volume of the business. Our well thought out trips do, however, offer fantastic value for money. We use established and reputed domestic airlines and typically 3 or 4 star hotels in main cities with good reputations. We include the majority of meals on the trails and use well maintained private transport for road travel. The superb equipment we use is time tested and our well trained trek staff and leaders are natives of the place we escort you too. Our prices are purely based on a ‘No Frills’ policy with no hidden cost. We give our guest breakdowns of the rates they pay when requested. With Unique Path Trekking, all deals made with us are clean & satisfactory to the hilt.
At Unique Path, we know the work we do on the mountains is risky business and never take things for granted; with our respected guests and also our crew. It’s absolutely vital that all our guides and porters listed on our payrolls are well paid and compulsorily protected by a life insurance policy. We ensure they have warm clothing and proper shelter on all high altitude treks.
All our trips have a good impact on the village economics & we always use the local services (manpower, agricultural produce, lodges and other services).
We are aware of the psychological effects insurance and caring for our trekking crew has on their job performances when on the trails. Please view our Authorisation Certificate from the insurance company in Nepal.
We love what we do and are passionate about organising your trips to the Himalayas in Nepal. We’ve been on the trails for over two decades and experience over the years has taught us that our guests have traveled far from home with a sense of purpose to not only enjoy but also find meaning and learn something from the trips they do with us. We clearly describe what is included in our packages so that you know exactly how to plan your budget. We never hesitate to go the mile in providing more than what our packages offer. We also know our guests are very sensitive to time and the value of what they pay for. This is always a constant thought in our minds and a continuing process we never stop working on, when serving our guests. Serving for us is a kind of hospitality that comes straight from the heart, this is why we have a lot of repeat visitors who gladly recommend family, colleagues and friends to use our services. For all of us down here at Unique Path Trekking, there’s nothing more rewarding than when we hear of our new clients who tell us they got to know of us through our old clients.
We always offer our guests practical pre-trip information to plan your vacations carefully. Our suggestions are channeled down from people with ‘hands on’’ knowledge and experience of the area you plan to visit. Through our online ‘Write to us’ application, we carefully screen our guests applying to participate in our trips. By learning about your outdoor experience, fitness level and medical conditions we set upon making your trip more enjoyable and successful with flexibility that’s more of YOU and the kind of SPACE you need.
We make sure your programs are not cramped and that you are here to rejuvenate, learn, enjoy yourself and go back home with memories of a lifetime.
This depends on the kind of hotel or trekking operator you go to. Most tourists’ hotels in Kathmandu, especially in the tourist hub of Thamel are hygienically sound in the preparation of whatever cuisine you order for. Veggies are chlorinated and cleaned well and it’s relatively safe to eat out in most tourist areas in the ancient valley. We have well trained cooks on our payrolls who are culinary experts in different cuisines ranging from Chinese, European/American to Nepali, Indian and Tibetan. They know the importance of hygienic preparation for making great healthy meals, especially when you are on the mountains.
Importantly, they are skilled in the art of combining locally grown organic foods with the imported ones. It’s essential that our guests let us know their dietary needs prior to joining the trip: if you are on a special diet or vegetarian or a diet advised by your doctor, our cooks will know how to take care of you. We ensure you get king size meals, especially at breakfast as per your body needs. Special care is taken when you are on the trails. We know food is important to get you into the holiday groove.
We understand – Holidays are a big decision. It’s not always you jet across the globe to wander the souks of turkey or bask in a dreamy Poonhill sunrise. But we’ve been doing this every day for over two decades (we’re now graying). Our confidence has now turned bold because we know so well what our guests truly want: a fine mix of extensions after a trek and enough time to chill out, a combo of unique tours and local hideaways you won’t find on Google. And surely some original real life experiences in Nepal, the land of the Himalaya…and the gods.
We have a heady mix of treks, tours and adventure trips to suit both greenhorns and ‘done-it-all” travelers. Your itineraries are tailored to match your time, budget and the joys of travel: from two days or two months. The options are juicy, from shoe string budgets to high end luxury tours.
We suggest you hike through narrow rugged mountain paths into dense rhododendron forests, lush glens and chocolate box villages where the friendly natives warmly welcome you from the heart. There’s never a dull moment in Nepal.
We have invested in premium quality equipment to support our camping/trek groups in Nepal, using trusted Mountain Hard wear of reliable quality. We provide our guests the most modern, lightweight equipment specially designed and geared for trekking and climbing. For example, the tents we provide you are spacey, the down sleeping bags and jackets are warm and the mattresses are comfortable enough to protect your weary body. The equipment we use meet all international standards.
With Unique Path Trekking, we can arrange accommodation ranging from cosy guesthouses to five Star Hotels. On this front we are extra careful because we seek to make your stay as comfortable as it gets to home so you go back with homely memories. Experience has taught us to keep in mind homely needs with modern accommodation facilities that suit your moods and budget. We also make special arrangements for our guests with physical disabilities.
Unique Path Trekking can arrange air conditioned or non-air conditioned cars, buses, vans, jeeps, land cruisers and coasters according to your requirements at reasonable prices that are pocket friendly.
To ensure a smooth and comfortable ride, all our vehicles are serviced regularly and driven by experienced drivers. All vehicles are fitted with ACs, have comfortable seats and spick and span interiors. We are very sensitive about transportation for our guests because we know how the failure of a vehicle midway on a lengthy journey can ruin an otherwise wonderful holiday. The vehicles we use go through a rigorous maintenance schedule. Our transportation is dependable throughout the course of your journey in any part of Nepal, Tibet or Bhutan.
Since our very first days as a reliable tour operator, responsible business practices have been at the core of what we do. Unique Path Trekking is committed not just to developing business and escorting tourists, but to making a true difference in all that we do – by investing in local communities, human rights initiatives and the environment. Your safety and good welfare is imperative in whatever operation we undertake for your comfort. We firmly believe in ethical operations in a responsible manner and incorporate principles of sustainable tourism and development into the way we provide our travellers with real life experiences. Our trekking teams are highly motivated individuals who thoroughly enjoy their jobs and are well trained for any eventuality. We fully understand the time, planning and financial investment you put into these holidays and we go the mile to ensure you enjoy the holidays of a lifetime. These values are more than just words; they’re inbuilt into the culture and daily operations of every Unique Path trip that you undertake with us.
