A guide to trekking in the Himalaya

A guide to trekking in the Himalaya

Cicerone has recently published a new guide – 'Trekking in the Himalaya'. The inspirational guide book describes twenty of the best treks in Nepal, Bhutan, India, Tibet and Pakistan. Eight authors, each an expert on trekking in the Himalaya, have shared vivid accounts of their treks, as well as stunning photos. One of the authors is our Managing Director, Steve Berry. In this book, Steve writes about three of his most exciting adventures: Wild Zanskar Trek and the Nanda Devi Approach, both in India and Gangkar Punsum Approach in Bhutan.

To coincide with the publication, we have launched a brand new holiday for 2014 –Gangkar Punsum Base Camp Trek. This special trek, unique to Mountain Kingdoms, has been designed by Steve Berry. In 1986, Steve led an attempt to reach the summit of Bhutan's highest mountain, Gangkar Punsum. Unfortunately the team were unable to reach the summit – and it still remains unclimbed to this day. This new trek, led by Steve, will follow the route of the 1986 expedition to base camp, and time will be spent exploring the remote valleys to the north, before returning to civilisation in Jakar in the Bumthang region. You can read more about this trek, departing 28th September, here.

The guidebook is now available to buy from Cicerone. And you can watch an interview on You Tube with the editor, Kev Reynolds, as he talks about what makes the Himalaya so special.

Mountain Kingdoms clients return to Bhutan

Bhutan is back open after two long years, and Ian and Lizzy were amongst our first clients to return. They were doing the Druk Path Trek and here’s what they had to say about their time in Bhutan.

"Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you’re ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing in camp."
