“My first time in Nepal and I chose to do the Annapurna Circuit trek. From beginning to end I was taken care of and am now leaving with the best memories. My guide Harka and Potter Armish were and amazing team! Harka's years of experience and knowledge of the regions made it especially helpful when learning about Nepali culture! There was a horrible blizzard the night at high camp but we managed to make it to Thorong La pass the next morning with clear skies and 5cm of snow. Our group went first and Harka expertly lead the way for everyone else coming after. Special thanks to Khum and Krishna for helping me with the booking process as well! I would recommend Unique Adventure to anyone looking to trek in Nepal. Thank you for the amazing trip!”
