Unique Path have given twelve of us a fantastic Trek around Nepal. Our original destination of Annapurna base camp was unfortunately not possible because of avalanche but Babu arranged a brilliant alternative with a diversion to Tatopani and then a trip to Chitwan. The organization of the whole trip has been very professional and we would all highly recommend Unique Path to anyone considering a trip to Nepal.
