“Fantastic trekking in Solo Khumbu region”

Me and my friends made a trekking in the most famous region in Nepal - Sherpa region Solo Khumbu. We walked from Lukla up to Kala Patar, than through Phortse up again to Gokyo. The weather couldn´t be better. Trekking Team Group enable us to realize this wonderful trip. They offered us trustworthy guide together with the porters, they arranged fly tickets for both ways and also provided logistic support all the trek. We were very satisfied with their service and with given information about the journey. I am pretty sure about no looking for other trekking company next time :o) I can recommend TTG for all the trekkers and adventurers!

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.
