“The best partner for traveling in Nepal”

I am visiting Nepal almost every year and I always go to Trekking Team Group, where I found profesional service, friendly people and accurate information. I specially appreciate their individualization so I can get exactly what I need. Last time I have been in Mustang and it was wonderful experience. The team we had to support our group was perfect. Thank you guys!

We are just back at home after a fabulous trek in the Annapurna region. We were not very fit hikers so wrote Trekking Team Group about what we wanted to do and what we can't do. Shree came within 2 hrs with an excellent idea to make Annapurna Luxury trek. This trek was one of the best we have ever done. The Teahouses were among the best you get on the trailhead run by Ker and Downey. Good food, friendly staff and great guiding. TTG organized everything for us from airport pick-up, accommodation in Kathmandu, flights to & from Pokhara and of course the trek itself. Everything went really smoothly.

Our wonderful guide Tashi led us with great skill and his ever-present smile. He was assisted by Lakpa and Maila. We carried day packs, but our overnight bags were of course carried by “the boys”: our super team of porters. Each night we had our down jackets, clean clothes thanks to the efforts of these guys.

Thanks again Shree and the Trekking Team Group. These are the guys to talk to if you want to trek in Nepal.
