Review for another Unique Adventure International Pvt Ltd tour
“Th trek: truly outstanding, we had an amazing guide and never encountered problems to find beds in guest houses. Our guide took such good care of all of us, checking our health and fatigue. He was also very involved with the life of the group, spending evenings with us playing cards and so on. For the actual trek, it was definetly very very physical and exhausting but the scenery and the achievement worth it !
I loved my trek”

“We had an amazing time doing the ABC trek, Unique Adventures were a fantastic company to deal with, everything was well planned and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Our tour was made even better by our 2 guides Kamal and Raz, these guys were legends and could not have done enough to make our trip an unforgettable adventure. Kamal always smiling and very consideration and experienced guide. Raz kept us laughing and was a great addition to our tour. We could not recommend these guides enough! At the end of our trip Mr Khum took us out for dinner which was a lovely way to end our trip. Thank you Unique Adventures for a truely unforgettable trip!”
