Hi Babu, From the moment we were met at the airport in Kathmandu, the experience we enjoyed with Unique Path was excellent. Our first meeting with Babu and our guide, Rupesh, answered all out questions and we were immediately confident about our choice of trekking company. Nothing that followed ever caused us to doubt that initial confidence – the sleeping bags and down jackets loaned to us were perfect, the transfers to the start of the trek were an enjoyable experience in their own right, and the accommodation and food included in the package was so much better than we had been used to while trekking in India. The trek itself was outstanding; our guide Rupesh was terrific from the outset, a mine of information and giving us complete confidence in the arrangements he was making on our behalf. Our porter Resham was amazing, carrying our huge bags with a smile on his face and consistently ensuring that our rooms had been arranged and our bags deposited there before we arrived at the tea houses. The two of them just made the trip so enjoyable for us. The trek itself went through a huge variation in countryside, from the beautiful lowland areas around Syange to the awesomely rugged mountains as we approached the Thorung La. Particularly delightful was the high level route from Pisang to Manang, with its amazing views of Annapurna ll. After the pass, Kagbeni was a fascinating medieval town, albeit with a branch of YacDonalds to show that it was at least aware of the 21st century. The hot springs of Tatopani were another unexpected bonus where we spent several hours in the hot water exchanging stories with other trekkers. The early morning views from Poon Hill were magnificent, particularly Dhaulagiri. And the last few days walk back down towards Pokhara, while different to anything that had gone before, gave us a wonderful finish to the trek. A lovely hotel in Pokhara and a fascinating bus ride back to Kathmandu were just the icing on the cake. Unique Path are a thoroughly professional operation. They tailored their standard trek to our requirements by building in additional days in both Pokhara and Kathmandu, and finally delivered us back to the airport to catch our plane to England. We shall certainly return next year for the Everest Base Camp Trek.
