Everest Base Camp - Awesome Adventure with Brilliant Birman!

Trekking Team Group are a fantastic local trekking company if you're planning a holiday or trek in Nepal and, simply put, Birman Tamang is the best trekking guide this side of Everest.

We booked a 20 day trek to Everest Base Camp during April 2019 through Inspiring Vacations. The overall package was initially compiled and coordinated by Inspiring Vacations (including flights, itinerary, etc), though once we hit the ground in Kathmandu it was Shreehari and his team at Trekking Team Group that managed the logistics of our trek, accommodation, meals, transport, etc. Shreehari and his team were always friendly and professional, and always willing to go above and beyond to ensure we felt comfortable, informed and happy. It was comforting to know we were in the hands of a local trekking company who not only had many years of experience, but who also provided support to local communities and schools through various initiatives. We only had a small group (3 people), which was great.

Birman Tamang was our guide for the trek, and I can't imagine having a better guide. Birman picked us up from Kathmandu airport (welcoming us with genuine enthusiasm) and stayed with us through to our return to the airport 20 days later. He has a great wealth of knowledge about not only trekking in the Himalayas but also Nepal, it's history, religion, culture, food and people. Birman's positivity and enthusiasm were seemingly endless and highly infectious. He's very patient and quite observant, so we always felt at ease along the trek and never rushed. He's also really flexibile and seems to have contacts in most of the lodges and tea houses along the trek, so it often felt like we got preferential treatment over other trekkers. More than once, I spied Birman picking up rubbish along the trails and putting it in the nearest bin.

Our two porters Doulashin and Sunkumar were fantastic, always waiting for us with a smile at the end of the day's trek. There's no way we could have made it up and back without them. 

Our package included some local sightseeing in Kathmandu before our trek to Everest. In addition, we had a few days once we'd returned from the mountain to relax and explore the local Balthali village and Bhaktapur areas. While we were somewhat exhausted from our journey up and down the mountain, this was a nice way to unwind after our long trek, and a welcome change to the dust and frantic activity of central Kathmandu.

I highly recommend TTG and Birman as your local trekking team and guide if you're planning a visit to Nepal. They're awesome.

ABC Trek

Our guide, Hari, and porter Omesh, were very good at taking care of our needs on our 11 day trek. They were very organized and pleasant to be with.
We appreciated the use of the SteriPen to sterilize our drinking water - no plastic water bottles! We also appreciated Mr Shreehari's interest in a follow up meeting to hear about our experience on the trek. We would recommend this company.

Amazing Trekking to (Mount Everest Base and the Kalapatthar) everything went perfectly thanks to the people of the Trekking Team Group and especially to Birman and Hira, who were the ones who made our trip a dream come true for all. Surely we return to do it on the side of Gokio and its lakes and we have no doubt that we will do it with this company, so formal in everything from the first day that we contacted them by email from Spain when we started planning our trip ..

Great Guide and Support Team

We decided to chose a local company on our second visit to Nepal. We were impressed with the social responsibility that this company demonstrates by not using bottled water and also their charity work providing meals in schools, providing dental care and clean drinking water.

Our initial plan was to trek to Upper Mustang but unfortunately the amount of snow in late February prevented us from completing our initial plan. Shreehari and our guide, Birman came up with an alternative trekking plan which was still challenging and would give us the opportunity to see at least some of the Mustang area. They were also very honest about the reduction in costs that resulted from the different itinerary and provided a full refund for the difference.

Our guide, Birman was very good at finding tea houses which had an ensuite bathroom. Out of all the places we stayed only one teahouse had shared toilet facilities.

Birman made sure that we had enough water to drink and it was clear that safety of his clients was his top priority.

The porters (Bikash & Sange) did an excellent job and we felt part of a family as we trekked out of Jomson and back in to Pokhara.

I would highly recommend this local company and would definitely travel with them again on our next visit to Nepal.

We came across trekking team group via a friend who had trekked with them the year before on the Annapurna Circuit. Taking her recommendation was great as it meant that we got to work with Shreehari in planning our trek and then with the amazing Hari who guided us to Annapurna Base Camp (and back). 

In planning the trek, Shreehari was incredibly helpful and accommodating working around our schedules to plan a private trek (a couple) with a guide and a porter. Shree even met us at the airport and joined us for dinner on our first evening when we arrived in Kathmandu which we hadn’t expected and was a lovely touch. The first few days sightseeing in Kathmandu were well planned which helped us to get an insight into the culture and history before heading into the mountains.

We met Hari (our guide) and his brother Ishwor (our porter) and drove to Pokhara and the day after we headed into the mountains. The trek was incredibly well planned by Hari. Knowing that he’d picked good accommodation (the quality of the beds was always he same but the number of private rooms and the quality of the cooking in each lodge varied massively) and locations for lunch stops that we’re appropriately spaced along the trek meant we knew we’d always be well rested for the next section of our journey. He was incredibly attentive and helpful when we had issues such as one day when I twisted my ankle which required a slow down in the pace. We joked that along the ABC route you were never more than 45 minutes away from your next cup of tea which Hari and Ishwor made sure we were full of along the way. We met a lot of people doing ABC unguided who were suffering with altitude sickness after having pushed too high up in one day or who were having trouble finding lodging for the night on the busy route. This was never a problem for us as Hari was making sure everything was booked in advance and would make us stop even if we thought we could keep going.

I would strongly recommend using trekking team group to plan and guide your trek. The only effort we had to put in was in making sure we were fit enough to make the journey! We’ll return to the Himalayas and we’ll definitely work with trekking team again.

First, mountain biking the Annapurna Circuit was an adventure of a lifetime, and I would recommend Trekking Team to anyone that I would recommend this trip. However, I would recommend trekking/MTBing the Annapurna Circuit to very few people that I know. You must be in very good physical condition and be willing to admit you're not in good enough physical condition. You must be willing to overlook the dirt (dust, trash and sometimes disgusting bathrooms) to enjoy the beauty. You must be willing to explore the local cuisine to fully enjoy the adventure. You must be willing to accept the available lodging that is never much better than a nice hostel and can be not much better than a roughly built shack. You must be willing to deal with cold.

If you can get over those hurdles, the adventure is worth it. Shreehari was responsive and helpful in the time leading up to the trip, and the trip itself was well organised. Trekking Team met us at the airport and handled all logistics related to lodging, transportation, and scheduling (providing either a guide or free time in Kathmandu as we choose) until we were back in the airport. The handoff to our MTBing guide was well coordinated.

The guide and porter were excellent and made sure we were taken care of at every step of the ride. The guide had been on over 50 trips to the Annapurna Region and seemed to know every local we met on the trip.

Fantastic 23 days Trek - Annapurna Circuit and Nar Phu Valley

We did a 23 days hike with Trekking Team Group in October 2018.
We were 100% satisfied with the overall experience of the trek. Everything was neatly organized. Communication beforehand was very quick efficient and in a timely manner. Upon arrival in Kathmandu we were carefully taken care of every single day. First by the agency (sightseeing/ evening dinner in Kathmandu) and later by our fantastic, very knowledgeable and experienced guide and porter. We booked a group trek but since no other people signed up for the same itinerary the trek was carried out as private trek without additional cost. 
I am glad to have chosen TTG as operator and would recommend undoubtedly to everyone that plans to go trekking in Nepal.

I booked with TTG a trek to the Gokyo lakes, returning via Renjo La. The package had me in their care from landing to take off in Kathmandu. I'm a returning client, following a booking for the whole family to Mustang + surround Annapurna trek. 
As in the past, I was very satisfied with the care and personal attention of Shreehari, the company's director, and with the professional level of Birman, the guide.
The company is dedicated to provide value to the client, while promoting safe and responsible trekking, as well as connecting you with Nepali heritage and traditions.
I will certainly make my next booking in Nepal with TTG.
