Mark Twain in his inspirational travel quotes once quoted that those who stays at an abode read only single page of book. It motivates and urges people to travel. Traveling let you understand the culture, traditions and nature of different parts of the world other than your familiar situations. If your travel consists of nature, culture and Himalayas together with adventure wilderness in just single trip then it can be termed as smart travel trip. Yes, Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal offers all these constituents of great wholesome holiday. 

Unique Adventure International sent its travel planners during off season to understand the current situation of the trail. Annapurna Circuit Trek route has been shortened every year because of the road network. From 2017 trekkers need to walk from Chame rather than from Besisahar. Once they are in Chame trekking starts and heads to Pisang. Bragga village of Manang is the place where trekkers get acclimatized. Side trips of monastery and village offer chance to understand the culture of natives. Following the trail of Ledar and Thorung Phedi trekkers ascend to famous Thorung La Pass. From top of this pass one can get mountain vista of Manaslu, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and many others. Across Thorung La Pass trekkers gets enchanted once they land at Muktinath Temple. Hindu and Buddhists both set of religion regard this place as sacred. Nunnery and Kaligandaki ancient civilization understanding can be observed in the area. Trail along the Kaligandaki River takes trekkers to Jomsom which is the windiest place in Nepal as well. Morning flight will take trekkers to Pokhara. Our itinerary includes sightseeing of Nepal’s most popular touristic city Pokhara as well. After arduous walking holiday retreating at Lake City Pokhara will help trekkers charge their batteries.

Why us? Is a conscientious question that requires an honest answer of integrity and devotion of the highest standards.  

We are what we were from the very beginning: Read on to know us the way we are…

At Unique Adventure International, We do not pretend to be what we are not, ours is a simple ethic, hospitality straight from the heart. When doing trips with us, you will soon find out excellence with us is not just a norm, it’s more a habit. 

We have walked the length and breadth of the Himalaya across Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan for over two decades…and still counting, we have enjoyed all of it so much; right to the hilt. We love our mountains and enjoy it so much when we tread its trails with our trekking guests, who also love these mountains as much as us or maybe even more. We have much knowledge of the land and meticulously plan things so our guests get the utmost from their sojourns with us; we know how chaotic it can be for our guests when they organise holidays so far from home…keeping this in mind, we sort out for the long haul and ensure our guests do not only have fun on the way but also get value for money with purposeful journeys. We know and understand that this may probably be a once in a lifetime holiday where you will explore a world not too familiar and its binding for us to make doubly sure you are completely safe throughout the whole course of your expedition when you are in Nepal. With each trip we do with you, we are constantly searching for ways to improve our services so that your expectations of us are met beyond what you could have ever expected on all fronts. We want that you go home with a happy heart and unforgettable memories of an odyssey well done. With Unique Adventure, this is central to all our thoughts when we meet you.  

A small business with big ideals…    

We are a small outfit with big ideas and we know how complex human nature can be; its only but human to understand your weaknesses and respect your strengths, both of which will be put to the test on the punishing trails of Nepal, but it’s always our mission to understand you and make your journey as calm as possible. 

This is the whole reason why we get repeat clients who never seem to get drained with the Himalayas and enjoy the way we guide them throughout the trip…

We know how worrisome it can be when you choose to live life on the edge… so we go the mile to make sure your holidays become more purposeful, more significant… 

We do not push you, no matter what the circumstances…

We know you want it slow and easy the moment your plane hits the tarmac in Kathmandu. We understand your instinctive curiosities and ensure you are left alone with enough space to do what we have planned for you – ‘your way’’.  You call the shots – it’s your trip – and we provide you enough freedom to make your own decisions in harmony with your group. We help you to become friends and bridge gaps; it’s a matter of pride for us to mention here that we created some of the best friendships where some morphed into lifetime partnerships and this is how things shape out with us when you assemble in our country. And when we are out with you in the country at high elevations, we ensure that our crew leads you in ways comfortable to your body and physical needs.

Our ‘True-to-Life’ practical itineraries…

Our itineraries are meticulously planned and based on the way you see it when your trip commences. Our themes are hands-on and we take you to some difficult but extraordinary places where some would likely pass by. We know you thirst for the unknown and interesting; your search for things that will ignite your emotions and imaginations, seeking for the ‘whys’, how’s and when’s’ into the mountain culture, lifestyles and traditions that you witness in territory you have never been familiar with. We put in a lot of effort to create astonishing one-off experiences which would make great notes for memorable stories to pass down to the coming generations. Each trip we design opens up new avenues to a whole new world that you are not familiar with…and when you discover the answers, it could be a life changing experience you would have never expected. 

Trips to match your time frames…

We are flexible in the way we operate our trips based on your exclusive needs. We understand the kind of pressure ridden world you hail from and know you have worked hard for your dream holidays. Our programs are typically designed to give you the most and the best based on your time limitations without any blemishes on the joys that come with your venture. 

You could be planning a budget trek or a luxury tour, maybe even a trekking peak; whatever the choice, we give you an extension combo so you have a scintillating mix of history, the outdoors and even jell in a jungle safari into the potpourri so you have varied experiences within the timeframe you’ve chosen. Our website is programmed to give you a host of options to make you smile…  

Accommodation: They say Home is where the Hearth is…and yes, the Pillow!!

We are extra wary when arranging your accommodation before you enter our country. We know we’ve got to give you something that’s closest to home. After consulting with you and being twice as sure about what you’re expecting when it comes down to that most important part of life: resting your body and mind at night, we make sure we give you the best accommodating facilities available at a hotel that’s not only comfortable but also a place that is spanking clean with fresh linen and staff who understand your needs and go the length in making sure you feel at home, no matter what the length of your stay with us.

This also includes the sanitized conditions of the food you are served. Even when on the trails, we go the mile to make sure you find a cosy teahouse with no dampness and enough ventilation to keep you healthy and warm with food that’s organic and clean. We know how important the hearth is wherever you stay. With us, be sure that all your personal needs are taken care of well. Ours is the kind of hospitality that comes straight from the heart… 

Safety and Security: This is mandatory and imperative…

Our safety and security arrangements for all our inbound guests cross all boundaries; from the moment your jet hits the tarmac at the airport in Kathmandu. This is a process that begins prior to your arrival in Kathmandu, when we design your itinerary based on the program you have chosen. It begins with choosing the right team for you, especially if it’s a trek. We make sure your crew is primed for any contingency when at altitude. We believe in following firm standards with focus on risk assessment knowing mountain climbing is always a risky business despite the excitement it offers. All the planning is done prior to your arrival so you have a carefree, footloose and fancy free journey, without any hassles.  

We always advise our guests to go through medical routines in their home countries before embarking on trips above 3000m. We also encourage our guests to get insured before coming to Nepal. 

Your entire stay in Nepal is monitored from day one, especially when you are on the mountains. We take nothing for granted, nature can be a monster when least expected. When booking your trip throughUnique Adventure, you are not just a client – you are more than all that - you are a parent, a brother/sister, a close colleague – in a word – ‘family’; and all our safety precautions and personalized services are purely based on this relationship.

We Respect and Care for the local folks and Love the Environment we operate in…

We are conscious in the importance of preserving the natural beauty and culture of Nepal, so that future visitors can also enjoy the wonders of this beautiful but fragile environment. We are sensitive and devoted to responsible travel with minimum impact on the environment and local communities. The planet is large enough for everyone to explore and it’s the curiosity of human nature to explore and discover the unknown. We are always careful about the ecosystems that surround us when we are on the mountains, but we don’t let this spoil the spirit for adventure. We seek to enjoy in ways beneficial to others and wish to respect this beauty that God created for us to appreciate; and we want to keep it that way. Equally important, we instruct our crew and travellers to be aware of the values of responsible travel, by: respecting people, cultures and local environments, in creating goodwill; with cross-cultural sharing and experiences; and helping make sustainable development practical, where we put in efforts to give back more than we take.    

Our Trekking crews are Principal to the Company…we’re Family… 

One paramount issue for trekking companies in Nepal are employees directly connected to guests when trekking in the Himalayas and this is key to any trip conducted anywhere on the Himalayas. Our staffs in general receive fixed monthly salaries and our trekking crews get special rates as defined by the Ministry of Labour in consultation with the Ministry of Tourism - Government of Nepal. 

This also includes the provision of Social Security for mountain workers as per government directives. In addition to this, we also provide climbing training to new comers listed on our payroll. All our seasoned guides are well trained in the use and application of First Aid in the event of any unexpected injuries that may occur in the course of the journey when at altitude. 

Field Employees are constantly upgraded for personal development, delivered via courses in English, about nature, history, and ongoing training as mountain guides with techniques based on safety precautions...along with this, our mountain crews are insured and covered against any eventualities. The insurance package covers the cost of health care if injured or sick and provides a lifetime gratuity if any employee is physically disabled. We treat our employees as valuable assets. We know their security and happiness is vital to ensure yours throughout your stay in Nepal… 

Innovation: We are constantly juggling new Products…   

Ours is a constant search for new trails in the great wilderness. We’re always innovating new areas for travel within and around the city limits and out on the mountains. Nepal has so much to offer in her ancient heritage cities and within the vast expanse of her Himalayas. We ceaselessly research new products in order to give our old clients new thrills; this has always been part of our company’s policies for giving more value for money. We know that many of our guests rarely get time to travel and when they do, they’d sure like to make the best of it; besides Nepal, we even cut across borders giving our guests unbelievable historical and cultural highlights of Tibet, Bhutan and India. We even design divine spiritual tours for the holy who’d sure like to hike down footsteps of ancient ancestors along the Mount Kailash Mountains so that they could come face-to-face with the gods. You even get opportunities to stroll down the cobbled stone Squares of Patan and Bhaktapur and slip into the Forbidden Temple of Pashupatinath. Beyond the spiritual of Kailash in Tibet, our programs take you to the highest region on earth, at an elevation of 4,900 meters (16,000 ft). Very much noted as the ‘roof of the world’, Tibet is symbolic of a mesmerizing culture seeped in spirituality and nature. From superb temples and tranquil monasteries to the Yangtze River and adorable Pandas, our products are molded in a way that  ensures you experience a whole new world of amazing discoveries that tells you about God’s gift of a wonderful planet we all live in.

We give you Mountain Yoga 

The Mountain Yoga we offer on the trail is an earthy, friendly and unassuming space, dedicated to healing and transformation as your mind battles the vagaries of nature while on your journey in the wild. When you decide to holiday on the mountains; it’s like a calling into the high and wild to experience Mother Nature at a higher level and to explore her true beauty. But there’s another calling that wants you to find release from your inner demons. It might be seen as the feeling that there has to be more to life than our day-to-day routines in the machine of modern day society. As you go higher above the tree-lines, our certified yoga guides give you the kind of alignment helpful to your body’s needs when adjusting to the thin air at altitude. They are compassionate, knowledgeable and guide you with postures and breathing exercises that promote physical fitness at higher elevations, keeping the mind calmer, making your self-awareness more acute, and help you get more balanced, while preventing you from having any problems with altitude mountain sickness. Yoga is an ancient practice known for thousands of years to clean out even the deepest mental grooves and rigid mindsets which may hamper your trip and spoil the fun on your trek.

We are the only adventure company in Nepal offering our guests mountain yoga which enhances hassle free trips and keeps our guests safe from common altitude problems. 

Our Success Ratio…

We’ve been through it all – the ups and downs have been full and plenty. The series of earthquakes of 2015 affected us bitterly; however, we kept the faith. We knew this was nature at its best and worst. We do not take anything for granted when it’s a tryst with Mother Nature, especially in the wilderness above the tree-lines. We knew we would still need these mountains more than they need us...These mountains teach us so much about life. It was Almighty God that created these mountains with all its stark beauty, but then a natural calamity can be lurking somewhere around the bend, and we must always be aware of the environment - and this comes with respect, consciousness and faith. 

Despite the hurdles and hiccups, our Success Ratio has been over 98%, why? Because experience has taught us the hard way to Love God, respect the mountains, to learn from our mistakes, and to always, at all times, be Honest with our Guests…and let God do the rest.     

Excellent expérience

I did the Annapurna Circuit trek with Tilicho Lake organized by Unique Adventure. They were very responsive and answered every questions that I had. They helped me organize my trip with the limited time that I had and rearranged the schedule and the itinerary to match my interests. I did the trek with Dawa. And I could not ask for a better guide. Dawa is very knowledgeable. You can ask him anything about the landscapes, the culture and religion, anything about Nepal and he will answer you. Before the trail, he will give you all the necessary advice and support to make sure you complete the trail the best way possible. On the trail, he is very attentive to your body signals and adjusts the speed accordingly. He even positions himself according to the shape and slope of the trail to keep you safe as much as possible. I am really grateful for everything he did for me and recommend him as your guide for your future trek in Nepal.



My guide, Krishna Dhakal, was great, knowledgeable, very patient and very helpful. I wouldn’t have completed Thorung La Pass with out him. Also Unique’s -20 down sleeping bag really kept me warm at High Camp (4700m) on a winter! Will definitely recommend to friends! Thanks!

Great time!

My guide Sudan Karki was great at arranging our stays at cozy tea houses, leading the way on the steep trail, and explaining local culture and traditions at the monasteries we visited.

We did Annapurna Circuit and the trek was incredible, our guide was so helpfull and it was really easy to book with this agency!

We definitely enjoyed our experience and we recommand it to anyone who loves trekking and the mountains!

Superbe expérience

Superbe expérience avec cette agence avec laquelle nous avons réalisé un trek dans la région des Annapurnas. Le contact avec l’agence a été merveilleux : temps passé pour nous fournir les explications, prix proposé, prêt de matériel inclus (duvet, doudoune, bâtons de marche) et réactivité (départ le lendemain !). Notre guide était également au top : très professionnel, il était aux petits soins et a su être réactif pour réorganiser les 3 derniers jours de notre circuit quand nous avons souhaité redescendre. Une expérience géniale qui nous a menée jusqu’au lac Tillicho, le plus haut du monde !

Amazing Experience

Overall I can only say that I had a really fantastic experience hiking the Annapurna Circuit and I can only recommend to do the trip with the Unique Adventures Travel agency and especially with the guide Sudan! ?? The organization pre as well as during the trip was really good. All questions were answered very quickly and the agency was very flexible (I only booked the trip 3 days in advance). My guide Sudan was a very experienced trekking guide, who was really kind and patient. I felt very well taken care of at all times! As I was quite eager to trek a lot during the day, we quite quickly were ahead schedule - but Sudan was super flexible, arranged to sleep in different villages and also invited me in his gorgeous hometown on the last day and showed me around and provided me zeal Bhat with his lovely family. Thanks a lot for this really great experience ?? I had an amazing time!

Do Duy Luan

Unique provided great information about the Annapurna Circuit Trek regarding what to expect in the track and the equipments needed. I unfortunately didn't finish the circuit because I had altitude sickness but my guide, Dev, helped me and organised transport so I can get back down to feel better. When I recovered, my guide arranged for me to do a shorter trek (Poon Hill) and I was grateful because I still experienced the beauty of the mountains. They are also very helpful with transport from and to airport. Communication was excellent, able to receive a response straight away.

Annapurna with Kumar

I had the pleasure of trekking the Annapurna region with Kumar. His contagious smile and energy set the tone for a really nice journey. He knows the region and checks on people’s well-being while trying to tailor the experience to my preferences. Even if I was travelling solo, he included me in his guided tour and took care of me. In doing so, it made my experience more special in an expected way.


If I could give more stars I would.

If I could give more stars I would. Unique Adventures went above and beyond for me during my trip to Nepal. To begin with I arrived one year early – yes I booked for 2024 but arrived in Nepal in 2023 – and instead of allowing this HUGE blunder to be the story of my first trip to Nepal, the owner, Khum, worked magic. He quickly found a guide and porter for me and honored my booking for the Annapurna Circuit and TIlicho Lake trek. They handled everything, just as advertised, and I never was concerned about their promptness or execution. My guide, Chandra, was experienced and a tune to my speed and ability. We modified the trip a bit because we were making more progress than was expected in the itinerary. He was knowledgeable of the areas we were traveling through and often had stories or informational bits to share with me. The three of us got along swimmingly, Chandra and Nemah, had great senses of humor and were always happy and up for additional treks or just to sit around playing games. The lodging and food was as expected on a trek such as this and Chandra and Nemah often offered me desert of apples and bananas as a special treat. Almost every room I had included a stunning view of the Himalayas and a soundtrack of the river that paralleled the trail. I don’t need to dwell on how stunning the experience was or how much, mentally and physically, I needed this trip so that I could reset and put 2023 in the rearview mirror but this trip exceeded expectations in that regard. Towards the end of the hike, I did become ill but I was never concerned or felt alone; Chandra, Nemah and Khum, were all very attentive and concerned that I be receiving the care I needed. They treated me like family and I will definitely be using them in the future when I visit western Asia.

Great experience

It has been one of the greatest experiences of my life to have done annapurna circuit (with lake tilicho) with unique treks (mr. khum zubedi) and my guide mr. nurie. I would any day recommend or repeat the same myself if i get an opportunity. They were absolutely amazing in their hospitality and helped me through out my stay in nepal. Such hospitality at such cheap rates is unheard and lucky to be found.

My guide and porter were amazing, very tentative to my needs and took care of all the organising, food and transport. They made sure that I was well looked after.
