Make fit yourself for the further journey. This day is for acclimatization. Physiologically prepare yourself for adaptation to changes in climate or environment.

This was one of our best vacations. Weather was impeccable and so was the trek organization (Khumbu valley) and the care we were given. From the landing in Kathmandu to the take-off, somebody from TTG was taking care of us. No stress at all (for us :-)) !
Another big benefit of being with TTG was having an experienced guide. Thanks to Arjun we could really enjoy the trek, the nature, the atmosphere of high mountains and let all organizational issues to him (be it delayed flights, overbooked lodges etc.). He managed everything with great oversight. Combined with his true love for the mountains we were on the same wave and could breathe all together the beauty of Himalayas.
Overall our experience with TTG is so encouraging that we will be back again. And yes with the Team Trekking Group. Why changing the winning horse?

My wife and I would like to thank Trekking Team Group for organizing our porterguide Chitra Tamang and our porter Bibek Rai.
Chitra is very caring, knows the area exceptionally well and made our trip from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar really memorable.
We hope both Chitra and Bibek will be considered by Trekking Team Group for other customers!

My first time in Nepal, June 2015. Got very good recommendation for this agency from a cousin of mine. We did almost three weeks long trek in Solokhumbu area including Island Peak summit. All the paperwork done by Trekking Team Group. The agency was amazingly fast and efficient. We sent them money ahead, which was good decision, since we only needed to spend a few hours in KTM (arrived Sunday evening, left Monday morning!) thanks to this. After our arrival, we were picked up at the airport, taken to the office where our permits, garbage deposits, Lukla air tickets etc. were ready for pick up. No waiting time, no problems, no worries, no excessive unnecessary expenses, very professional. After we got back they took care of our return flight reconfirmation and within a few minutes arranged us a daylong trip aroung KTM valley for price (for the car with the driver) better than we were able to negotiate with taxi drivers.
Absolute satisfaction, definitely will work with this agency next time again.
Nepal is safe after earthquake so no need to worry to visit this beautiful country..

Trekking Team Group provides outstanding service for very reasonable prices. I have used them for treks into the Khumbu region and have never had a complaint. Shreehari and his group really know how to take care of clients. They can plan a trip for you or, as I did, make all the arrangements for the itinerary you lay out. The guides are special - knowledgeable, caring, and a pleasure to be around - and they arrange for very nice, capable porters. The most important aspect of using TTG is their response when things don't go as planned. Everything gets rescheduled as necessary and, if needed, assistance provided and care arranged. Every one in TTG is a nice person who really cares about the client. You can trust them to do everything possible to make your journey a memorable one and to take care of you if things don't go as planned. I highly recommend them.
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.
