Hello Babu, thank you for arranging this beautiful, well organised trip. We enjoyed trekking with Sonam and Ramesh, they are really helpful and they did help to make the trip as comfortable as it can be in the mountains.The Manaslu trek was a great adventure. We did like the beautiful green rice paddies in the lower area, the nice small villages on our way, the yaks, and the rough mountain landscape with ist beautiful views. Also thank you for the warm down jacket and the warm sleeping bag. It kept us alive up in the mountains :)If you are looking about going into the Himalaya, we like to recommend to do the Manaslu trek together with Unique Path Trekking!

Dear Babu, Our party of 10 friends (some of whom had trekked with Unique Path before) had a memorable 2-week trek to Gokyo Ri in April 2013. Everything was handled perfectly from the airport pickup and hotel stay in Kathmandu, to the emergency helicopter evacuation of one friend who became ill, to the hospitality and expertise of Jeevan and his two assistant guides, adapting to a change of route because of the snow level that prevented our crossing Renjola Pass, and ensuring that we all were safe and happy throughout the trek. The local porters were extraordinary, and Babu made sure our extra days before and after the trek were well organized and enjoyable. We highly recommend Unique Path Trekking and Expedition. Thank you,

We met Babu via e-mail then we came to Nepal to do Mustang trek. Unique path trekking, organized our trek to Mustang which was perfectly organized. All the staffs, cook, porter were excellent.

Trek to Mustang is little bit tough and we all were above 60 years old but help of the guide and all the staffs we trekked without any problem. If we come to Nepal again we want use Unique Path trekking and our guide Babu. Thank you very much.
