We did the Everest Base Camp trek with Unique during the period 26/2 - 14/3/2011.  It was truly an amazing experience! The mountains were refreshing, and this was complimented with the positive encouragement by our guide, Krishna.  The journey was well planned and well paced.  Sufficient time were given for acclimatization and was tailored to our needs.  Would definitely recommend the services of Khum and Krishna to trekkers looking for a trek suited to your every needs.

This trek was one of the best experiences of my life. I found it quite a challenge but it felt like such an accomplishment to reach the destinations everyday. The walk, views, weather and yaks were amazing. My guide, Krishna, helped me so much and gave me a lot of encouragement and the porter, Yadav was great too. It was fun with the giving of Nepali folk songs all the way. Thank you to Unique Adventure for the trip of lifetime."

A very enjoyable experience. Krishna took all the pain out of it. We spent 14 days doing the Everest Base Camp walk. During that time, we had undivided attention, and would recommend this company to anybody.

This was a last minute decision to hike to base camp, but Krishna helped us get ready and talked us through all the issues. He was very knowledgeable about altitude sickness, and we noticed that we were one of the few groups that didn't get sick. Krishna and our porter Rabindra were patient, always available, professional, encouraging when we felt tired and lots of fun to be with. All aspects of our trip were taken care of.

"Although the trek to Kalapatthar met many difficulties the light schedule, health condition and snowing. I really want to thank Unique Adventure, who provide professional advice to me. Without Unique’s guide and porter, I am afraid the problems and not able to solve so smoothly. I recommend other to use Unique’s service for further travel planning in Nepal."
