Hi Babu, Sorry for not replying earlier, We had a wonderful time trekking with Unique Path and will be back your teams organising skills were great with everything running as planned and even when we changed the itinerary during the trek there was no problems. You have great staff and that makes all the difference. As you know this was the second time trekking in Nepal for half our team and we all loved it. Please pass on my regards to Chevon and Tillar. Regards,

Tim & Jessie WindsorAustralia

We would like to Thank you Babu and the boys, for a most wonderful and exciting trek. We did the Annapurna circuit, which was a lot more difficult then we expected, but through them, we had a most enjoyable time. Babu, not only being very professional and informative, was very helpful, charming and witty. (We always groaned when he said that the next day we were going to experience a lot of Nepali flats, because we knew we were going to suffer). Not only was he a guide, but our friend, you could trust, and share a joke with. We were very impressed, when a few in our group could not go on and had to go back down, within a few minutes he had an alternative trek mapped out for them, by going back down and going back up on the other side, where we could meet them. So they could still enjoy their trek. And the boys, our porters, were absolutely wonderful. They smiled, shared jokes with us and were ever so helpful. (even wanted to help carry our day packs when we were suffering and they already had 30 kilos on their backs!). We will definitely do another trek with Unique Path Trekking. And we really cannot thank you enough Babu, for your help, and making our trek so memorable. We are planning to do the Annapurna Sanctuary, September next year maybe. Namaste and take care Kind Regards

Dear Babu, Many thanks for organising such nice Annapurna trekking for me. I was very satisfied with both boys: Suvas and Biru. They are very friendly and help me by anything. The tea houses, when we have slept, habe been always the best in the villlage! Everythink was perfectly planned and organised, so I have no reason to worry. Upon of this I was treated with so much care like a baby 🙂 Many thanks also for borrowing me warm and clean sleeping bag – without it I would probably get ill. The vacation is one of the most extraordinary and stunning in my life. I will recommend your agency to my familly and friend. Of course I would like to come back on the Nepal trails once again! I am staing in Kathmandu till 6.11. Could you please send a taxi for me to the Back Yeard hotel at 4:30 PM? The hotel is not easy to find, if that is the problem we can make an appointment in from of Kathmandu Geust hous, to be not confused. Please let me know what you prefer. Best regards

Dear Babu, I can truthfully say that I have had the best experience of my life with your tour company. We booked the EBC trek with a side trip to Island Peak and also the Chitwan Safari Park. When altitude sickness prevented us from trekking to Island Peak your company brought forward our trip to Chitwan and also advised us to visit Pokhara and organised everything in lieu of Island Peak. You took the worry away and replaced it with experienced and friendly staff who made our trip to your beautiful country one of our most memorable. We are coming back in the future. I would rate your company one of the best. Babu, these are our thoughts about our trip. The guide and porter were absolutely wonderful, nothing was too much trouble. The guide had so much knowledge and explained to us about the culture and history of Nepal as well as everything about the tour, from the animals and vegetation to the ways of the people and the sherpa life. Our accommodation was basic and the people who run the establishments were very friendly and helpful. The food was great, our favourite was Dahl baht and we now have that at home regularly. Our trip to Chitwan was again excellent. The tour on the elephant was really exciting and we spent a wonderful 3 days in the Safari Park. Seeing Rhino in their natural habitat was really wonderful and the photos we took were amazing. Once again the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. You run an excellent trip to Chitwan. My personal highlight was bathing with the elephants and seeing the baby elephants. Our trip to Pokhara was a lovely finish to our trip, we rowed around the lake, went cycling, walking, sightseeing and of course a little bit of shopping. We would love to trek the Annapurna next time. Thanks to Unique Trekking we have taken home with us absolutely wonderful memories and photos and feel like we really know and understand the various cultures of the Nepalese people. Thankyou for sharing your unique country with us.
