Actually I never thought that my Annapurna trekking will be so much incredible and close to nature that it will remain fresh in my memory for a long time come. Since the time I correspond with Shree from TTG, he answered me so promptly. Upon arrival in Nepal he has constantly assisted and helped me to make my trip an experience of my life time. 

When I was at the base camp I found the amazing mountains right in front of my eyes which was unbelievable! I recommend everyone to go to Annapurna with TTG and experience what I did.

Me and my friend did the Anapurna circuit. Shree really helped us choose a great trip plan for the number of days we had and answered our every question with huge patience. The best was our incredible porter Ajay who was so friendly and helpful, really made the difference between good and great. Thanks a lot!

We had a a really great time on our trek, excellent views and comfortable accomodation all round. Our guide, Hari, was very knolwedgeable and friendly. As it was our first ten day trek, we were a little cautious of the Winter weather and the high altitude, but with a bit of luck (no snow!) and an attentive guide, we felt very at ease. I decided to take a poter later down the road and Hari also helped organised a reliable and friendly gentleman to join us. The Trekking Team Group also help organise donations to a local Secondary School in need of stationary and school supplies, through a great charity called 'Pack for a Purpose'. It's worth checking out if you have some space in your backpack before leaving Kathmandu, all very organised and an easy way to support the community. Thank you for an enjoyeable experience!

we have just completed a 14 day trek of the Annapurna Circuit with the Trekking Team Group. We all had an amazing trip, the company was very professional and reliable, they provided great porters and guide who made the trip unforgettable. The company also arranged really comfortable accommodation along the way and the tour guide and the porters took us to the best local restaurants during the journey. We learned a lot along the 14 days and saw some amazingand incredible places.
We had the chance to connect with our new Nepalese friends and we learnt heaps about these amazing people and their culture.
These amazing, friendly and beautiful people are always welcoming you with the biggest smile on their faces and they are always ready to provide you the best service, making you feel part of their family.
Massive thanks to the trekking team group, specially to our guide Goku, our super strong and loving porters Tika and Kamal - they made our holiday unforgettable.
We definitely recommend their service and we can not wait to start planning a new trip around Nepal with the trekking team group in the near future.

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.
