OVERVIEW

This trek crosses three relatively high passes, good paths are followed throughout and there is no trekking on glaciers. At the edge of the Tibetan Plateau in the Himalayan rain shadow lies Dolpo – the legendary hidden land closed for years to trekkers. The lack of other tourists, the warm welcome given by the hardy Dolpo-Pa and the fascinating insight into the Tibetan way of life makes this an extremely varied and special trek. A unique trek in Nepal, it is ideally suited to both beginners and those who have “been everywhere”. You haven’t until you’ve been to Dolpo.

Dear Babu, Sorry for the delay, but I would like to thank you and your team specially Mr Adhikari for the wonderful arrangements made for our trek to Langtang and Gosaikund. We had a most wonderful time and in spite of hurdles like inclement weather etc, your team were great and I shall always remember Mr Adhikari’s catch phrase “Its possible” to every request, some outlandish, made by our bunch of sometimes intemperate travelers! We look forward to more treks with you guys now that you all have spoilt us. Thank you guys once again.

We just returned from a very beautiful and exciting trek through the Langtang Valley. Lila and his team did a great job in guiding, cooking and taking care of us. Especially when Sonja got injured we were very amazed about the professional handling of this unexpected situation and appreciated the carrying in particular the hot bag, which provide us the most valuable item on the trek. In addition, we had lot of fun with the team be it with games and dance and music sessions. The cooking provided by Suresh and his team was delicious and of an unexpected variety. In summary it was just the Ganjala we missed, the rest was just perfect which was due to a fascinating landscape and Lila and his team. We are already considering to come back and would recommend Unique Path at anyone.

Dear Babu, I am now back hom in the UK. I would like to take this opportunity to thank your good self, Raymond my guide, Bishnu my sightseeing guide, all of your drivers and representatives, and all of the staff at the Marshyangdi hotel for making my trip to Nepal a dream come true. From my very first enquiry last year my experience of Unique Path has been one of great professionalism, friendliness and helpfulness. It really was a wonderful holiday and i would have no hesitation in recommending Unique Path to my friends and other trekkers. Thank you once again and i hope to be your client again some time in the future. All the best,

Myself and 3 other Irish friends completed the 11-day Everest Base Camp/Kala Pathar Trek. The trek was an absolutely fantastic experience that I will never forget. The trek was enjoyable at all times thanks to our expert guide Prem Khatri, to whom we are very grateful. Babu took us to meet our guide in Kathmandu the night before the trek and described what we should expect on the trek and advised us on what to bring. We felt very assured from the start. Our guide flew with us to Lukla, taking care of everything at the fairly chaotic airport, and took care of accommodation and food all throughout the trek. Prem was a great source of knowledge and information throughout the trek, having done it many times before. There was not a question he could not answer, and in his near-perfect English I might add. Prem had no problem understanding our various Irish accents (Donegal, Dublin, Meath and Carlow). He seemed to know practically every other guide and many of the locals along the trek, and had very useful contacts in the Airline that allowed us to fly back to Kathmandu a day ahead of schedule. We learned a lot about Nepali culture from our frequent and prolonged conversations, which added hugely to the whole experience. I would heartily recommend Unique Path Trekking when trekking in the Himalayas. Babu, with his experience and professionalism, was a great help in arranging our very successful and unforgettable trek to Everest Base Camp / Kalapathar.
