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

We spent 17 days trekking the Annapurna circuit accompanied by Suresh. We found him to be an extremely competent, kind hearted and friendly companion. He assisted us greatly in all areas and ensured that our time was most enjoyable. We have found Unique Path to be a highly reputable and professional company and we would recommend their service everyone.

Dear Babu! Thank you very much for organize our tour so perfect. We have had much trouble, before we arrived Nepal, beginning with the miss of our flight to Kathmandu. So we lost nearly 5 days, but within your help the tour was finally perfect and at least I could complete the hole programm, Tilicho Lake, Thorong La und Chitwan National Park. Best Regards,

ErwinNetherlands

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.
