Mountain Kingdoms, the Trekking Specialists

Mountain Kingdoms was formed back in October 1987 as Himalayan Kingdoms, when two mountaineering friends, Steve Berry and Steve Bell rejected conventional careers to make a living from the love of their life - the greatest mountain range in the world. The reputation of the company as the Himalayan, trekking, touring and mountaineering specialist quickly grew, and in 1993, Himalayan Kingdoms were the first British company to guide Everest, putting seven paying clients, six Sherpas and two guides on the summit.

In 1995, the company separated, with Steve Bell moving the mountaineering side of the business to Sheffield, which continued to operate as Himalayan Kingdoms Expeditions until 1999 when its new name, Jagged Globe, was slowly phased in. The two companies continue to have close, friendly ties. With Steve Berry at the helm, Himalayan Kingdoms continued to grow, pioneering new and exciting trekking routes, initially across the Himalaya, and then gradually beyond into the other great mountain ranges of the world: Europe, South East Asia, Central Asia, the Americas and, most recently, the Middle East and Africa. Finally, in 2008, Himalayan Kingdoms became Mountain Kingdoms to better reflect the holiday destinations we offer which span the world. 

As well as expanding into new regions, Himalayan Kingdoms also began to offer different styles of adventure holiday. Besides full camping treks, tea house trekking, homestays and hill tribe treks provide comfortable accommodation as well as contributing directly to the local economy. Luxury lodge trekking in many countries has a greater level of comfort still. Today, Mountain Kingdoms also offers Cultural Tours and Trekking Peaks. There is an impressive choice of trekking holidays that range from gentle day walks to demanding high mountain adventure. 

We are justifiably proud of ‘Mountain Kingdoms' 29 years of achievements’. Mountain Kingdoms - the adventure of a lifetime

The majority of our holidays are led by English speaking Local Leaders; exploring in the company of a local being one of the best ways to really discover the culture, heritage and everyday life of a new destination.

In destinations with limited tourist infrastructure, and on long treks into very remote regions, you will be led by a Mountain Kingdoms Appointed Leader. These western leaders usually work alongside a local guide and often have particular expertise in the region you are visiting. Between them, our leaders have led hundreds of mountain treks and tours and have travelled to all parts of the globe. Collectively they represent an enormous fund of knowledge.
