Eric

Namaste Babu, I have to start by apologizing for not contacting you sooner. This is Eric of Eric, Graham and John who trekked to Annapurna base camp with Raj, Raju and Preem between April 25th and May 4th. We had no idea when we started planning our trip about which company to use. Ten years ago we went with Samrat Travels and I contacted them again for this trip. They were much more expensive than Unique Path. Asking among friends who visit Nepal we were told that you get what you pay for by and large, so that did not take us any further forward. In the end it was more or less a shot in the dark, but you always replied promptly to emails and that made us think we would be alright. So the question is what do we think now, when we are safely back home and recovered from jet-lag and catching up with gardening and painting? We think that we happened upon a superb company! We doubt if there is anyone better in the whole of Nepal! So it is an enormous grateful thank you from all of us for making our trip so enjoyable. When you consider all the problems we were faced with it seems quite amazing that we did everything we set out to do. We were delayed almost three days at the beginning when the ash cloud prevented us from flying for two days and then late arrival in Delhi meant almost a day in the transit lounge. When we finally reached Kathmandu you changed the schedule without fuss and we reached Annapurna base camp on April 30th as originally planned. We had no idea that a general strike was planned for the beginning of May and confused messages began to reach us suggesting that tourists were not affected. We fully expected there to be a minibus to meet us at Nayapul on May 4th. It was a bit of a shock to find that we would have to walk back to Pokhara, but walk back we did and walked to the plane the next day. John suffered some strain in his leg and ended up limping in pain. Despite the strike we still managed the mountain flight on the 6th and our visit to Bhaktapur in the afternoon, wonderful! Thankfully our flight home went according to plan. I will be meeting friends in our local mountaineering club tonight (Thursday) for the first time since our return and I will, without the slightest hesitation, tell them that if they intend to trek in Nepal they should contact Unique Path for the best service. From our arrival at the airport where your sign was easy to spot we had clean new transport, careful drivers, nice accommodation at the Marshyangdi Hotel, careful planning to suit our wants, good service from our porters and our guide Raj and everything happened at the time given. It really could not have been better organized. Thank you all for everything you did. Please feel free to quote any of this email in advertising or in reply to prospective clients. Best wishes to you and all at Unique Path.

Eric MansfieldCanada

Dear Babu We greatly enjoyed our trek with Unique Path Trekking and would wholeheartedly recommend your company to anyone that asked. From the speed and accuracy with which you dealt with my email enquiries to stepping out of the airport to be met by your representative to the professional and friendly guide (Sonam) and his porters, I cannot think of anything that you failed to do. Sorting out all the paperwork and accommodation, it really made our trip very easy and stress-free. October was the perfect month to go and I am glad that we chose The Langtang Valley trail for our first venture to the Himalayas. Sonam was a very friendly, professional and informative guide who took great care to make sure that all our needs were met. Thank you to you all for helping us have such a wonderful experience. Should we have the opportunity to return, we will definitely be using your company! Best regards

Angela ThorneUnited Kingdom

Thanks a lot to Unique Path Trekking and specially to Ram because he was an excellent guide that they make us a super stay in Nepal, enjoyable a lot in the Everest and the Gokyo trek. If someone decides to get Nepal, we recommend without doubt to contact with Unique Path Trekking.

MariaSpain

Some words about our trip – Jiri to Base Camp “Our 26 days of trekking was amazing and we have no regrets of using Unique Path Trekking & Expedition whatsoever. Next time we will organize our trekking again via Unigue Path. We appreciate the professionalism displayed by your organisation. We are looking forward to meeting you again personally in Kathmandu soon”. Kind regards
