“fünfmal in Nepal - fünfmal mit "Trekking Team Group"”...und immer sehr zufrieden!
Meine bisherigen Treks mit diesem Unternehmen: 10/99 Annapurna Basecamp und Chitwan NP - 10/01 Helambu Langtang und Chitwan NP - 03/04 Kalar Patar und Everest Basecamp - 11/06 Kali Gandaki Schlucht und Muktinath - 02-03/10 kurze Treks in der Umgebung von Kathmandu; Nargakot, Pewa See und von Jomosom bis Muktinath.

Mit meinen Gruppen von 4-12 Trekker/innen lernten wir nicht nur Land und Leute, sondern mit Hari Thapaliya auch sein Unternehmen "Trekking Team Group" kennen. Alle Treks wurden von diesem Team umsichtig und für uns erlebnisreich durchgeführt.
Insbesondere mit den beiden bestens ausgebildeten und Deutsch sprechenden Führern Arjun und Goku konnten die Trekstrecken und Aufenthalte unseren Wünschen problemlos angepaßt werden. Besonders zu erwähnen ist die Umsicht der Führer in kritischen Situationen (aufgebrochene Magengeschwüre). Ihre fachkundigen Erläuterungen zur Tier- und Pflanzenwelt haben uns sehr erfreut.
Durch Lodges- statt Zelttreks haben uns unsere Führer den Kontakt zu den Bewohnern ermöglicht. Wir konnten gemeinsam singen, tanzen und spielen.
Zu Hari, Arjun und Goku hat sich in den vielen Jahren ein fast familieres Verhältnis entwickelt. Die Führer und Träger sind, bezogen auf Kleidung und Schuhwerk, gut ausgerüstet. Besonders zu erwähnen ist ihr Einsatz auf sozialem Gebiet! Ich habe in einer Privatinitiative, zunächst allein und später mit einem Partner, Hilfsprojekte durchgeführt. Ohne die aktive Hilfe unserer Freunde hätten die Projekte nicht realisiert werden können.
In den vergangenen Jahren habe ich viele Kontakte von Interessenten zu diesem Team hergestellt. Und habe mich über ihre positiven Berichte gefreut.
Die "Trekking Team Group" ist mit ihrem Inhaber Hari Thapaliya ein kompetenter und sehr zu empfehlender Partner für alle Treks und Besichtigungen in Nepal. Ich werde mich auch bei meinen weiteren Touren diesem erfahrenem Team anvertrauen und mich umsorgen lassen.
Gern stehe ich auch anderen Interessenten mit meinem Rat zur Verfügung.
Namaste, Manfred Rödermund

May 19 2016

This is my fourth visit to Nepal , all using TTG, but the first to the Annapurna region. TTG organized a personalized trek for me that included the complete Annapurna circuit, a side trip to Tilicho Lake, a ten day excursion to Upper Mustang and Lomanthang for the Tiji Festival, and a trek to Annapurna Base camp.The trip was perfect as was the support and organization by TTG. My guide, Goku, was encouraging, always happy and ready to help me accomplish my goals. If you want to get the most out of your stay in Nepal, TTG is the right company for you. They cover all of the logistics so you have no worries and can concentrate on the magnificence of the mountains, the culture, and local people you encounter. TTG provides the complete package. I cannot emphasize enough how having a guide enhances the experience you will have. They have knowledge of the terrain, the view points, the various cultures and religions, the trees, birds, animals as well as keep you safe. Every detail of my trip was managed superbly by TTG. I have no hesitations in recommending TTG for a five star experience.

Additional Information

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.

What makes this trip different ?

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.

Donation

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.

Sponsorship

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.
