Babu, I had an amazing time with Unique Path Trekking, the staff was wonderful. From the minute I got off the plan in Kathmandu to the minute I stepped back on again someone from Unique Path was there to ensure I had everything needed for a great adventure. My guide Richard was full of knowledge and useful information that kept me entertained throughout my trip and the Himalayas are the most amazing mountains I have ever seen. Thanks to Babu and his great staff for a trip of a lifetime, I will be back.

Dear Mr. Babu Sitaula, I am very content with Unique Path trekking; the tour was well organized, the trek well managed. Above all, all deadlines were met exactly. I can’t send a group photo, because I was alone. But I send you a photo from the base camp. I wish for you and your company all the best for the future. Maybe we will trek together once again. Regards,

Namaste Babu We are really very happy with your recommendation to do the Manaslu Trek. It was exhilarating to experience this wonderful part of Nepal especially with our expert guide, Suresh, our patient porters, Tilak & Sunil, they are a great team. They are always looking behind our backs ensuring our safety & comfort which have made this trek easier & unforgetable. Once again, we would like to say a big “Thank you” to you & your team for your excellent service. Trekking is a Challenge, Unique Path is the Choice!

Dear Babu! Thank you very much for organize our tour so perfect. We have had much trouble, before we arrived Nepal, beginning with the miss of our flight to Kathmandu. So we lost nearly 5 days, but within your help the tour was finally perfect and at least I could complete the hole programm, Tilicho Lake, Thorong La und Chitwan National Park. Best Regards,
