We’ve just been back from a fantastic trip of the Annapurna Sanctuary( Annapurna base camp). This is our first time in Nepal and Unique Path Trekking Agency did provide us an extraordinary trekking experience. They did provide us excellent mountain Guides with professional attitudes and strong mountain porters. We are very much impressed by the scenic mountains as well as the enthusiasm of the guide. The cook can do almost every style and it’s really tasty. We’re sure that we’ll come back to Nepal again to trek in the marvelous wild nature with them.

We have just returned from a trek around the Annapurna circuit. It was an exhausting, yet fulfilling trek. The guide, Ram & Chandra, the porter have both been very helpful and great, ever in circumstances which they may choose not to be involved. We are most graceful to them. Unique Path is greatly recommended!!!!

Irell & LisaSingapore

I spent three weeks on Annapurna Circuit trek. The Himalayas were so beautiful! It definitely exceeded my expectations. I came home with many nice memories. The whole trek passed without any problems or worries also thanks to proffesional and friendly approach of my guide Subash. Many thanks again. I am sure that once I will come back.

IvanCzechia

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.
