“Unique Adventure made our 2017 Spring Festival a really UNIQUE one! My family decided to try some longer hiking in Nepal mountains for the Spring Festival holiday of China. I say "longer" because before this we've never done hiking longer than one day. Will it be OK if we make the famous ABC route or ACT? What can we expect from the long hiking? Especially will our 9-year-old girl enjoy the hiking? With all kinds of questions, we were given very professional advices! At last we combined the Poonhill and part of ABC route together and made it to 9 days hiking in the mountains, plus 3 days jungle safari in the Chitwan N. P. Everything tuned out perfect! Our guide Ram was super nice and experienced who knew exactly how to organize the hiking and take care of the kid. The girl was happy all along the way, esp. when play in the hotspring by the riverbank and meet the giant mountains face to face in Chamron. Thanks to Unique Adventure so much that we gained such a lovely family memory!”
Nice view and Great Trek!
