Excellent trek to Everest Base Camp in Nov 15. Very well organized and good food. Guides and porters of Unique Adventures were nice and very well informed about the Khumbu region.

All this for a very reasonable price. Day tour of Kathmandu was worth doing as well.

Cheers.

I did Everest Base Camp trek in Nov 2015 with a couple of friends and we chose Unique adventures. We thought it would be a very hard trek that needs lot of planning, preparation and would test our limits but Krishna took all the pain out of planning and organizing the trek.

We spent 14 days doing the trek to Everest Base Camp. During that time, we had the team's undivided attention and felt very safe and comfortable. I would recommend Unique adventures to anybody planning for a trek in Nepal.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about altitude mountian sickness, and we noticed that we were one of the few groups that didn't get sick in the entire route. Our guide Krishna and our porters were very patient with us, always available, ready to help and encouraging us when we felt tired and lots of fun to be with. Each and every aspect of our trip was well thought and taken care of.

We originally planned to go to EBC, however, due to poor weather conditions, the airport was shut down (completely out of the company's control). Unique Adventures rescheduled us to do another trek, and was very professional and accommodating. We received a very thorough and detailed break down of the costs, and got a full refund for the flight that was cancelled. Unique Adventures provided us with great service, was very reliable, and our guide (Venn) was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this company to others!

We had a wonderful experience trekking up to ABC (even during Monsoon season), and Unique Adventures was a perfect company to book with. Our plans had to change quickly from EBC to ABC due to poor weather and the change was seamless. Our guide Venn was excellent and was very passionate about his job and country which made the Trek that more meaningful. We highly recommend Unique Adventures to anyone who is looking for an incredible journey in Nepal.

I have just returned from Annapurna Circuit trek and Unique Adventures International Private Limited had organised my trek. Though I had joined an open group, all other participants had dropped out. Khum Subedi told me not to cancel my trek as I had trained myself to do the Annapurna Circuit and was also looking forward to visiting the Muktinath temple. Khum Subedi encouraged me to trek by myself with a guide and a porter provided by him. He had assured me about security and safety. By doing this trek solo with a guide and a porter provided by him, I was able to enjoy my time trekking and also being with the mountains without any hassle. I would recommend Unique Adventures to anyone wanting to trek in Nepal. Infact I would advise people to do solo trek without any group by just contacting Khum Subedi who will organise everything for you.
