“I had a few days off after my work visit to Nepal and I wanted to spend some time travelling in the Kathmandu valley.” As a women travelling alone I decided to contract the Trekking Team Group . And I did not regret it. Thanks to Shreehari who asigned his experienced guide Arjun to me, I had a wonderful time visiting (either walking or travelling by public transport) beautiful places like Changu Narayan, Nagarkot and Bhaktapur. Arjun is a very thoughtful guide who is eager to explain Nepalese daily life to you. I was struck by the gentleness of the Nepalese people, and their resillience and eagerness (young and old, women and men) to rebuild their beautiful and culturally very rich country after the earthquake. I am determined to go back one day with my family for 'more serious hiking' with Shree and his Trekking Team Group.

I had an amazing experience in Nepal, such an adventure!! I was very sad to be leaving. I found the service was excellent, it was great not to have to worry about getting from place to place, from the moment we arrived in Nepal we were very well looked after, you could say even spoiled!! Our guides and porters were excellent, and had so much knowledge on the culture and history of Nepal which they were more than egger to share with us. We had great fun also with our guides, singing, dancing and laughing all the way!! It was fantastic to learn and see so much of Nepal; I feel we were very lucky to have experienced so much of this beautiful country in such a short space of time. This trip has had a huge impact on my life, and i would very much like to return soon to this wonderful country and get the opportunity to spend some more time with the beautiful Nepalese people. Thank you for a wonderful service and i wish you all the best with your business, and i hope our paths will cross one day in the near future.

This trip was amazing, TTG did a wonderful job putting this together and went out of their way to accommodate us with any changes we needed when possible. (Not to mention answering all the questions we had before booking the trip.) From the time they picked us up at the airport to the time they dropped us off 11 days later we never felt unsafe. The driver was absolutely wonderful, how he's able to drive through that was unreal - you have to see it to believe it! They had everything planned for us and we even had time to venture out on our own.
This is the first guided tour group we have booked with mainly because we like time to do things on our own, TTG was perfect for that. The only thing we wished we had known was how CHEAP you can purchase trekking gear for in Kathmandu. We could have packed light, gone with no gear, bought it there and brought it home with us to use here. Of course we still bought gear, but the extra baggage cost was brutal. You can't go wrong with this group. How many vacations can you say you went white water rafting, hike to Nagerkot, woke up to a breathe taking view of the Annapurna range, explore the jungle on feet, not to mention all the cultural sites along the way - all in one trip! You can have all this and more with Trekking Team Group! Thank you and we are already dreaming out next adventure!

I cooperate on preparation of tours with Trekking Team Group for several years and I have to say that´s great partnership with wonderfull people - at the office as well as guides. But what is most important, it is reabilty, prompt respond and action when it is needed. We went together over several disasters like earthquake last year and I would not change this company for any other....
This is ADVENTURE travel, and many of the trip destinations in this site are remote areas, within under developed countries, where events are less predictable than is usually the case in. The unexpected is the norm in these areas and, despite painstaking planning and organization, our adventure trips can never be taken for granted like regular trips. Many of the places that we visit do not have the same quality of emergency health and safety services that you are used to in the developed world. Internal flights can be canceled, road transport is generally uncomfortable and unreliable, and hotels often do not approach the standards of the West.
IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED FOR THIS, YOU SHOULD NOT TRAVEL WITH US.This unpredictability also means that the itineraries that we put forward for each of our trips should be seen as statements of intent, rather than as contractual obligations. A variety of factors, including weather, transport difficulties and political instability, might dictate that we change any itinerary. The trip leader will make any changes that are necessary, after consultation with the group. Only rarely will such changes be significant, and we will always do everything within our powers to minimize the effects of the enforced changes. We cannot be held responsible for the results of changes or delays, irrespective of how they are caused.
Trekking Team Group is the major supporter of Ambe Foundation, an apolitical and not-for-profit organisation. We contribute our support for the development of some community schools in remote villages in Nuwakot district. We have been supporting Gramin Devi School and Khumbeshwori School, both community-based educational institutions, through donation, sponsorship and partnership in various projects.
Trekking Team Group donates one percentage of its total business profits to the foundation on yearly basis. The donated amount supports the ongoing maintenance of Gramin Devi School and Khumbeshwori School in Nuwakot.
One of the major activities of Ambe Foundation is the children sponsorship programme. It is conducted in full collaboration with Trekking Team Group.
Partnership (Volunteering Program)
The Ambe Volunteer Programme, organised by Ambe Foundation and Trekking Team Group, aims to mobilise teams of experts and interested individuals effectively for education, health and community development in Nuwakot district.
