“We did the Annapurna Circuit in October 2011. The weather is phenomenal and the tour was excellent. Babu from unique path trekking arranged everything for us, including overlooked travel insurance. Apart from the devastating scenery, our guides and porters made the trip ridiculously awesome. Bharat is the man, always quick with a joke and to light up smoke, full of smiles and passion for the mountains, it rubbed off on us and actually energised us during the really hard parts. Cutting through Thorang Pass was one of my life’s greatest highlights and I would recommend it to anyone, sooner rather than later. Thanks to Babu, Bharat and the rest of the crew, including the pretty girl who runs the office for an epic experience. I will be back again, hopefully sooner rather than later.”
