OVERVIEW

The route leads through a magnificent mountain area, past many Tibetan villages. The tour offers you spectacular landscape of Tibet and takes you sacred Mt. Kailash, which Hindus and Buddhists view as the “center of the world”. The mighty rock dome of Kailash comes closer. Together with pilgrims from far and wide you follow the trail (Parikrama) across the Dolma La (5600m), which is adorned with countless prayer flags. It takes three days to circumambulate the snow-covered cupola of the 6714m tall mountain. In Tibetan tradition you will conclude this pilgrimage in Tirthapuri – which is one of the most important pilgrim destinations...

Almost surreal appears the canyon-like valley of the Sutlej. Imbedded lie the ruins of Tsaparang, the capital of the former kingdom of Guge. After visiting the 900 year-old site our drive through the canyon of the Sutlej starts long the north route to Lhasa. The light and shadows of the summer clouds make for a magical atmosphere, dip the barren vastness in tinges of pastel green, yellow deep blue and violet. En route, we visit two of the most sacred temples of Tibet: Tshilunpo in Shigatse and Kumbum in Gyantse. In Lhasa, the spiritual and secular center Tibet’s, visited by many pilgrims.

I trekked to Annapurna base camp for 2 weeks which I enjoyed very much. The guide and porter were very friendly and honest who made my trip very pleasant. Thank to the Unique Path trekking for arranging so perfectly. Again I would like to come back to Nepal for trekking to Everest region.

Dear Babu, “Helen and I cannot thank you and your company for the fabulous trek we completed to Annapurna Base Camp (Tim Windsor group April 26 to May 11). The trek will be a highlight for us for years to come, not just because of the spectacular scenery, the wonderful people we met on the trek, the fabulous culture and food, but mostly for the brilliant staff that made our trek possible. A special thank you needs to go to our guide Jeevan and assistant guide Tilak who both guided, cared and laughed with us through the journey. There were times for us that their support made a hard day on the trek so much easier. Of course, nothing would have been possible without the porters that formed an important part of our happy family . Thanks to Robie (always smiling and keen to make sure we were having a good time), Biru (for his friendly, calm approach – he would make a great guide himself), Nabaraj (for caring our things without any complaints and his great smile at the end of those long days) and Mehendra (young, enthusiastic and full of fun). Attached are a few photos we took of the group. At the same time we are putting together a small parcel for the team (some items for the Jeevan and the porters). I will email when this is sent. I hope that we are back in Nepal in the near future and we can again take advantage of your wonderful services.” Kind regards

Trekked in Langtang area for 10 days, an excellent trip, Kundan was an excellent guide, tailoring the trip to our wishes and abilities always happy and good fun, we very much decided what we wanted to do and Kundan made it possible was excellent when I had knee pains and great fun in teahouses. Our porters Tilik and Harry where also excellent and very attentive and always on hand for us. I have trekked twice previously in Himalayas in large groups, without question I would use yourselves again over any large group, and wish I had found you in the past. Many thanks to all for a wonderful trip and superb organisation. All the booking and transport was equally efficient, even when our car broke down an alternative was swiftly found. Cant wait to return again one day. Regards,

Babu, Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed our trek! Ross and Kumar were awesome! Ross is an excellent and knowledgeable guide. I struggled some with the climbing and the elevation and he was extremely helpful and patient. He really helped me to slow my pace and I would often follow him up as he was very disciplined in keeping a slow pace…..something that I have difficulty with. Ross was very attentive to our wants and needs in the camps and made sure we got everything we needed. He was also very knowledgeable about the mountain peaks and local culture. If I could offer any advice/suggestion to Ross and Kumar it would be to continue to work on their English skills and diction. This will make them even more valuable and helpful to clients. We really appreciate the flexibility shown when we decided to cut the trek short and go back to Katmandu and then move the city tour up a day. Ross was so helpful in taking me to the Qatar airline office and getting our flights changed. I will highly recommend Unique Path Trekking and Ross/Kumar as guide/porter to my friends and family! Thanks again to your company for the wonderful experiences! We made a lot of once-in-a-lifetime memories in Nepal!
