What an amazing trek in the mountains with Trekking Team Group! we are a family of 5 and Shreehari, Ram, Dhawa and Chandra took such wonderful care of us. we have 3 youngish children (ages 13, 11 and 11) and they brought us such a memorable family experience that had a safety focus which we appreciated. Ram was a patient and informative guide, showing us the wonders of the trek from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and pointing us nuances and subtleties along the way that we would never have noticed without an experienced and caring guide. Dhawa and Chandra lugged our families baggage and shared their experience and family stories, we were so grateful for their presence and hard work. Shree organized and managed the challenges of domestic flights despite complicated weather and COVID obstacles. Even after return to Kathmandu and end of the trek he continued to support us with charter flight information and liaison with travel companies to smooth our departure from Nepal. We'd recommend the services of Trekking Team Group to anyone coming to the area and hope to return someday to hike some more with them!

After Argentina cancelled the Aconcagua season, I decided to continue training and attempt Mera Peak. The trek is generally challenging but was further complicated by the on-going pandemic and complex rules of Nepal to ensure the safety of climbers during these times. I reached out to Trekking Team Group and Shreehari was fantastic in making all the necessary reservations and assisting with the process. After I made my reservations, Nepal relaxed some of the more cumbersome rules, especially around the visa process (when I arrived, they were beginning to issue visas at the Kathmandu airport instead of being required to have them prior to landing). I wanted to utilize the same guide, Birman Tamang, who assisted me with Everest Base Camp (EBC). Although Birman is not a mountaineering guide, Shreehari agreed and was able to arrange a very experienced Sherpa to guide us up the mountain during the final days of the trek. Also, given that I had already purchased most of my gear for Aconcagua, I decided to bring my own mountain climbing equipment instead of renting (which I would highly recommend). This added additional weight, so I opted to hire an additional porter to ensure that no one carried too much during the journey. We started with the usual flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and took the long way to Mera Peak (via Nashing Dingma and Chunbu Kharka) to provide additional time to acclimatize. The landscape is varied from forest to rocks on the side of rivers to mountains. There are many instances where you gain a few thousand feet of elevation only to lose it and make it up again in the same day. Physical preparation is critical but having a good sense of humor and openness to the experience to ensure that mentally you are prepared for the final part of the experience is key. There were a few teams that we heard about prior to our assent and the success rate was typically around 50%, so we knew it would be a challenge to get to the top. We had a thunderstorm in the hours before our final summit that turned into a snowstorm, which made each step up the mountain feel like three (and the only thing we saw reflecting in our headlamps was the newly falling snow). It certainly helped that the person who was tied to me at the other end of the rope was the same person who had gotten me to Everest Base Camp and I had spent the prior 12 or so days with getting to upper camp. We started our summit push at 2am and were on top of Mera Peak by 7am. Having last been in Nepal in 2018, there is a stark contrast with the low number of trekkers in the country today due to Covid. Mera Peak is typically a less traveled route, but we primarily only saw other trekking teams towards the end of our journey. Fortunately, many more people were starting their Mera Peak attempt during our final few days, so seems like there is a little recovery in the trekking industry. Nepal is very conscious of Covid with mask requirements, testing to enter the country and various other precautions throughout the experience. Shreehari was able to provide information and help that allowed me to complete an incredible experience. Trekking Team Group is a company that I would highly recommend today or whenever you feel comfortable traveling again.

I took group from the USA to Nepal. All travel was arranged by Trekking Team Group, owned by Shreehari. He is amazing. Everytime I sent him an email, I got a response within hours. He met our group in Kathmandu airport & all arrangements were flawless. Not only did he take my recommendations for hotels, but made his own recommendations . He also visited these hotels & told the managers to look after us. While there, he took the time to meet us for breakfast just to ensure that all was going well. He is very good, plus VERY knowledgeable about Nepal. I strongly recommend him

I could not recommend trekking team group enough! We had a four day hike to poon hill and had the most amazing experience along with perfect guides. Our guides were knowledgeable on the area and local sites while always been there for a chat if needed. Every person in the group was really well supported from start to finish and would definitely return to Nepal to have another experience with trekking team group! Thank you Birman, Sancha and Alok.

My Dad and I went to Everest Base Camp with the Trekking Team Group guide Birman Tamang and the porter Dhaula. It was a fantastic experience for us. Bir was a wonderful guide who was on top of every little detail of our trek. He was extremely knowledgeable about the region and Nepal. He was also took care of very fine details regarding our trek, such as finding and purifying suitable water, helping us buy equipment we were lacking such as trekking poles and thermoses, which paths and routes would suit our particular group, advising us about food, gave us detailed briefings each night in the guest houses, and medical issues. He also stressed being positive, travelling at our own pace with small steps and breaks up hills, and being sensible and safe. He also managed to score a helicopter ride from Kathmandu to Lukla, unexpectedly. Bir was also a lovely person to talk to and be with separately from trek issues and is very respectful with everyone. He is from a mountain community himself and is also an excellent photographer, putting together great movie packages of his treks. He should be a movie star himself with his strong bearing and good looks 😉 Bir was so on top of our medical situation (measuring our oxygen levels etc) that we did not suffer from altitude sickness and did not need our Diamox pills at all. His alternatives were lots of water, garlic, and acclimatisation days. Dhaula was also a very kind porter who stayed with us every day and gave us a lot of help besides being a porter. We could not have asked for better company. Trekking Team Group was impressive in that they try to trek in a moral way. Porters are not given more than 25 kg to carry. We were also told that choosing locally-produced food – potatoes, soups, rice and noodles – would both help our health (meat is carried up the mountain and is inadvisable) and also help local communities. This company was very convenient for us in that we barely had any out of pocket expenses up on the trail. Guest houses and food are paid for in advance (excluding drinks). Trekking Team Group also organised a tour of Kathmandu, and after the trek a relaxing two-day retreat to a mountain retreat called Balthali. This was one of the best experiences of my life. Nepal is a beautiful, different, atmospheric place. Thank you Bir, Dhaula and Trekking Team Group. Marty Gleason Melbourne, Australia
