Great trek and fantastic people. Cannot recommend these guys enough, we picked the company off TripAdvisor because of their rating. From the word go, the exact price including what was included in the total price and what we had to pay for was explained. Very professional, honest and trust worthy. Our trek was pretty remote and we had to have a guide, which was part of the permit deal, unlike Everest base camp and Annapurna treks.
Our guide Nima a local of the area, was brilliant, telling us about the local culture, and supportive, keeping us right, especially above the 4000m mark.
The teahouses were pretty decent considering where we were. The chosen tea houses appeared to be the best in each village. And all under 4000m had really decent options other that just dal baht.
There were very few fellow trekkers on this trek (and not WiFi or phone coverage) which was pretty magic. However all of them appeared to have significantly more for their trips than us.
Word of advice go with a reputable Nepalese company. All the European, UK, US and Aus/NZ companies outsource to them but charge you thousands extra for the privilege!
Thank you Shree for the great trip!

This was my second trek in Nepal, having done the very popular Kala Pattar back in 2010. Kanchenjunga was always going to be different, being far less commercialised and more complicated to get to. TTG guys took this all in their stride and to be honest I was completely unaware of what had to be done until we talked about it on the trek. Our lead was Nima and he, with the whole team, could not have been more helpful. When we stopped for the night food just appeared as if by magic, even in the higher sections where there were almost no facilities. Every day it was tasty and more importantly nutritious and it set us up for the next day. Part way through the trip we had a difference of opinion between members of the group on whether to go high for the 3 passes route or stay low on the return leg, so our whole group was split into two with no dramas and everyone got to do what they wanted to do. It was a pleasure to share the Himalayas with these guys and I will definitely go with them again next time. Anyone can book with Trekking Team Group with complete confidence that their dreams will be delivered (plus more they didn't even dream)

I trekked the Kanchenjunga Conservation Area with Trekking Team Group in Nov 2015. Kanchenjunga is an incredibly remote and isolated area, we spent 3 amazing weeks in some of the most unspoilt land imaginable. This was all due to the incredible organisation and local knowledge of both the Thamel based office staff at Trekking Team Group and their highly qualified and experienced guides Nima. A big thank you must also go out to all of the incredible guys that worked as our porters carrying our gear, setting up campsites, cooking food, entertaining us with their fun loving sense of humour, and showing us more care and compassion beyond what you would normally expect. I would recommend Trekking Team Group to all and any of my friends, family and anyone else considering travelling in Nepal.

I do not believe I could have had a more positive trekking experience than I did with Shree at Trekking Team Group. If you are looking for an authentic, well-run, and friendly trekking company, I assure you that you have found it here. Shree, the founder and a native to Nepal, has had an impressive amount of trekking and guiding experience in his time and became a great friend of ours by the trek’s end, as did our friendly and knowledgeable guides, who knew much about the region we were traveling in, both ecologically and culturally – great people to talk to and to have as leaders!! We also had a great team of porters who cooked for us as well, and the food was always good. I am certain you can never go wrong with a trek through TTG, and it is now on my bucket list to come back and do another trek with them with family or friends!

Two of us wanted to do a winter trek to Api Himal and the surrounding areas in Api Nampa. Trekking Team Group went to great lengths to find a guide who had been to this area before, and who could understand the local dialect. They even managed to get a refund on our permit fees -- apparently this is the only region in Nepal where no trekking permit is required!
It was a great winter trek -- As remote as it gets in Nepal, and clear skies every day. We knew it was something special when the experienced guide and porter took just as many photos as we did!
This was the second trek we did with TTG, the first being Kangchenjunga in 2011, and we'd definitely contact them for future adventures.

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.
