Dear Babu & Team Thank you for making our trip to Mt Everest Base Camp & Island Peak, a trip never to be forgotten… Your team surpassed all my expectations, your professional and personal attentiveness was remarkable! I will highly recommend Unique Path Trekking! I’LL BE BACK !!!! GROETE / KIND REGARDS

TANIA HANEKOMSouth Africa

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.

Barry Robertson and his friendsAustralia

Hi Babu, Our Everest trek with unique path was such an amazing experience. From the first email enquiry to the sad goodbye as our trek ended the staffs were amazing. Our guide and porter were not only that. They were more like friends/big brothers and we enjoyed our nights playing cards and learning magic tricks just as much as we enjoyed the the breath taking views of the mountain, villages and monestry. I would highly recommend choosing Unique Path and Trekking. You get so much more then just a trek.
