Dear Babu “I just wanted to pass on my apprecialtion for the wonderful trek you planned for us and the excellent work done throughout the trek by Jeevan Ale. Everything was scheduled out very well but Jeevan kept us on track to complete the trek in the time allotted. He kept us moving, provided excellent service and interaction with the various guest houses, shared a wealth of knowledge of the area and culture, and did so in a fun and respectful manner. We were all impressed with his ability to lead us but all the while doing so in a way that made us feel we were setting the pace. In reality, we could not have done nor seen nor done near as much as we would had he not been there. I am sure you are aware of what a valued asset Jeevan is to Unique Path Trekking but wanted to express my appreciation as well. I am glad my friends recommended Unique Path Trekking to me and will continue to pass that information on to others in the furture. I also thank you for your day to day responses to my neverending questions and your professional approach to pulling this together for us. Here is to continued success in the future!” Respectfully,
