Many thanks to Babu, Rufus, and Bunda for ensuring that we had a fantastic time in Nepal. Everything went very smoothly – all the way from the airport pickup, touring in Pokara & Kathmandu, the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek, and the final airport drop-off. It was a great trip with spectacular scenery and something I would recommend to others. Keep up the service excellence. Regards

David and LisaAustralia

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.

Daphne ChangMalaysia

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.
