Gentle Walking Holidays
Mountain Kingdoms offer a selection of gentle graded walking holidays to a range of destinations. You don't have to be a trekker to explore mountainous countries such as Peru, Nepal and Bhutan. Our gentle walking holidays mix sightseeing on foot with gentle walks on relatively low altitude trails – so are suitable for people who enjoy easy-paced walks in the British countryside. Accommodation is generally in comfortable lodges, hotels or luxury camps.
