The team was really supportive from beginning to end: as soon as we arrived to Kathmandu we met the team and our super guide -"Bir"- who helped us purchase the few outstanding things we had to buy - on a record time as we only had a few hour left on KTM that day- even though it was not planned he stayed with us showing us the best mountain gear places in Thamel until he was sure we had got all we needed to start our EBC adventure on the coming morning.
This is just a small piece of example of how supportive the team and especially our guide Bir was -as at the end, it's him who we spent most of our time with.
He was not only our guide to the EBC, but he gave us the best tips to survive on these mountains, and the most interesting pieces of Nepali history and culture.
We had a blast, thank you all!

I've been trekking twice before to Nepal when I was much younger and didn't use a guide or porter back then. This time I did, and was lucky to have Birman as guide and Foure as porter. From beginning to end this was an excellent experience. Bir took good care of my friend and I, always finding a room at the lodges for us despite this being peak fall season. Bir made sure we ate well, had enough blankets, and were safe on the trail. Despite lots of competition for flights, we had no trouble arriving and leaving Lukla on the days intended. I had some trouble with the lack of oxygen on one day going over Cho La pass, and Bir made sure we stopped to rest--and breathe--as needed.
I liked the company's policy about responsible tourism and was happy not ordering bottled water. Bir used his steripen to purify every bottle of tap water and my friend and I never had any tummy trouble.
Shree was very helpful before and after the trek, and proved an excellent manager.
I would highly recommend Trekking Team Group to anyone going to Nepal.
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.
