Steve Berry on trek to Gangkar Punsum, Bhutan

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.

Today, Mountain Kingdoms offers an extensive range of cultural tours, treks, walking holidays, adventure cruises and even a cycling tour or two. We still pioneer off-the-beaten-track camping or tea house treks but also cater for those who prefer their walks at a gentler pace with lots of sightseeing and comfortable hotel accommodation. For virtually all the destinations we visit we offer small group departures with a maximum group size of 12 but we can also tailor make holidays for individuals, couples and private groups.

If you book your holiday with Mountain Kingdoms you do so in confidence that the price won't change due to our No Surcharge Guarantee, whilst our ATOL and ABTOT bonding means you can have complete financial security.

We are justifiably proud of Mountain Kingdoms' 36 years of achievements and remain committed to giving all our clients the adventure of a lifetime.
