had the privilege of using Unique Path trekking to fulfil a life long dream of seeing Mt Everest. We did the Everest Panorama trek, which involved an 8 day round trip from Lukla to Pangboche. Our guide Ram was very experienced and knowledgeable about the area and culture and was very flexible in meeting all of our needs. Our itinerary was modified as we went along so that we could fit more into our 8 days. It was the best experience of our lives and booking over the Internet was easy and without any hassles. The attention and service from all the staff at Unique Path, from the moment we arrived in Kathmandu to the moment we left, was excellent. We sincerely thank Babu and his team for making our trip so enjoyable and hope to come back soon to experience more of this magnificent region.

Dear Babu, time flies so fast. It has passed a month since we left Nepal, but we still talk a lot about it, and how we enjoyed our stay, thanks to you and your staff. The most memorable part was Annapurna circuit trek, the mountain scenery with the side trip to Tilicho lake and pass over Throng-la. It was just great! We also fondly remember our guide and porter, that made whole trek much more interesting and fun. So, thank you all, for our great time in Nepal. Also we wish Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2011 to you personally, and to the whole Unique Path Trekking staff ! Best regards,

This has been our second trek with Unique Path Trekking in the last 3 years and the service could not have been any better. This year we went on an 18 day camping trek to Manasalu. Ram, Tilac and the support crew displayed great professionalism in there work and showed concern for our well being throughout the trek. Let me describe the 18 day trek in a few words: warm, hot, sunny, raining, slippery, cold, hard, tiring, harder, challenging, informative, wet, very warm, snowing, freezing, full moon, clear starry nights, extremely hard, peaceful, windy, enjoyable, exhilarating, and LOVED EVERY MOMENT OF IT. Also the arrangements for our visit to Chitwan and Pokhara were wonderful. Thank you again to Babu and everyone involved with making this trek a great adventure.
