Very great experience !
Written: May 20, 2019 | Event date: May 2019 | Source: tripadvisor.com
I strongly recommend the trekking group team agency. I did the mardi himal trek with Suk who is a super guide, very professional, carrying so much for us (in particular to prevent from the AMM), with humour. The organisation of the trek was perfect. Sree, the contact in the agency was very professional too,and is listening to the customers and makes sure everything is fine for us. I really advise this agency.

Best agency ever!

I would warmly advise you to book with Trekking Team Group if you are visiting Nepal! I booked a Mardi Himal trek with them and a one-day guided tour in Kathmandu and they were both amazing and perfectly planned. Trekking was absolutely stunning! Our guide (Suk) was funny, extremely prepared and knowledgeable. Plus nobody had any issues with AMS. Book with them if you want an unforgettable Nepalese experience! I am already planning to come back and will book with them if I need it!

Great local agency with good No Plastic Bottle policy
Written: May 6, 2019 | Event date: April 2019 | Source: tripadvisor.com
We did a modified 14-day Annapurna circuit in April 2019. The modified itenerary had been proposed by the agency and it was a great alternative to the usual one with condensed great walks and views.
Our guide and porter were really nice and always making sure we were ok. They always tried to find us a room with attached toilet, which was nice.
One of the reason we went with this company was the no plastic bottle policy. They did sterilized our water (steripen or boiling) every time we asked and we did not have any stomach issue, so we were really happy with that.
One of our other concerns about trekking was how the porter and guide are treated : both our guide and porter seemed to be treated ok. The guide had good gears. The porter gears were ok: not the best ones but far from the worst ones we saw. The guide was knowledgeable when asked questions.
Most of the trek went smoothly. Our guide was planning things ahead (and thus spending quite a lot of time on his phone). Once we had to wait quite a while for our transportation to pick us up, but it happened only once in the 14 days and I guess it is normal in Nepal on busy days.
The communication with Shreehari before and after the trek was great. I sent him my comments when I came back from holidays and he was happy to take notes of my recommendations.
Overall we are really happy with our experience. I would most definitely recommend the modified Annapurna circuit.

Thank you for having time to review us on tripadvisor. We are glad to hear about it. We are really working for sustainability and going against Plastic, therefore providing safe drinking water to our clients rather buying the plastic bottle. WE will try our best to update the gear of our porter as you have noticed.
See you for the next adventure!

Everest Base Camp - Awesome Adventure with Brilliant Birman!
Written: May 3, 2019 | Event date: April 2019 | Source: tripadvisor.com
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
Written: Apr 21, 2019 | Event date: April 2019 | Source: tripadvisor.com
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.

Great Guide and Support Team
Written: Mar 13, 2019 | Event date: February 2019 | Source: tripadvisor.com
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.

Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback. I am very happy that you liked the way how we worked for sustainability. This is the philosophy of our business " take only photographs and and leave the footprint only".

Pity that the weather wasn't good so you had to change your original plan. Despite all the fact you have enjoyed the holiday and I am happy for that.

Thank you and namaste !

The best way to trek to ABC
Written: Dec 28, 2018 | Event date: November 2018 | Source: tripadvisor.com
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.
