We spent 12 days doing a trek to Everest base camp and Kala Patar. Trekking team organised our flights and TIMS, but most importantly a fantastic guide.

Bishal was very professional and made sure we were safe with appropriate acclimatisation days. He was a great person to spend 12 days with including Christmas day, happy to join in with singing, dancing and playing cards.

We opted to organise the accommodation and food as we went along which was great. Bishal would advise us on places to stay but give us freedom to choose to stay with people we met on the trek. Everything was totally flexible.

The company were very helpful when our flight from Lukla was cancelled and arranged for us at very short notice to change flights to get back to Kathmandu. We rang them at 8pm at night and we had a flight was rearranged for first thing the next morning.

Incredible service.

 

 

 

“Outstanding Service at Reasonable Prices”

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.

 

 

Great experiance with reliable company!”

Had an amazing trip with Trekking Team Group! Program was 14 days with Everest Basecamp, Kala Pattar and Island Peak on the program.

The guide, Arjion haf 18 years of experience and did his job very well! Carefully planned with enough time for aclimitizing.

I really recommend this company, and would use it myself again if coming to Nepal to hike/climb!

 

 


Trek to Everest Base Camp is hardest thing I've ever done but the most rewarding. We did Everest Base Camp trek with Trekking Team Group. We had a fantastic time and would recommend TTG to anyone who wants to do this. Prior to the trip we were impressed with the information and advice we were given by email. When we arrived at Kathmandu we were met by our guide, Goku, who throughout our time in Nepal was extremely helpful and ensured that we enjoyed the trip and looked after all our needs. The trek itself was an amazing experience, and although we both suffered to some extent from the effects of altitude, we made it to the Base Camp. We would like to especially thank Goku and our Porter Tokpe for providing such a great experience, and would recommend TTG to anyone. 
Our trek was in early January and the weather was generally sunny with a few overcast days and one overnight snowfall. The temperature was pleasant for walking in the daytime, but it was extremely cold when the sun went down. The food was included in the price of the trip which made it very easy and great value for money.
