Back to Tibet - two spectacular new holidays
After a period of visa uncertainties the Chinese authorities have simplified access to this ancient centre of Buddhism, allowing Mountain Kingdoms to offer more holidays in Tibet.
Tibet's breathtaking high-altitude landscape is pierced with sacred mountains and ancient towns. It is a mysterious country once known as the 'forbidden kingdom', and isolated from the rest of the world. Tibet's unique cultural and spiritual identity has been fiercely preserved by its proud people and the exiled Dalai Lama encourages Westerners to visit his country to experience the true nature of Tibet for themselves.
New holidays to Tibet
We have introduced an additional two holidays in Tibet for 2014, including the Definitive Cultural Tour of Tibet and the Cultural Highlights of Bhutan and Tibet. Mountain Kingdoms' Tibet collection now varies from a 15-day tour to a 23-day strenuous Mount Kailash trek.
If you’re looking for a good book to take away with you on your summer holidays, look no further than Graham Hoyland’s thrilling new read: ‘Yeti – an Abominable History’. Mountaineer, film producer and best-selling author, Graham travelled to Bhutan with our MD, Steve Berry, in 2016, on an expedition to see if they could discover the whereabouts of the yeti!
Join Kidasha Trustee, Liz Waterman, on one of two life-changing fundraising adventures in Nepal. Trek through remote locations within the Annapurna region, explore the Kathmandu Valley and gain an in-depth insight into the real Nepal whilst walking through untouched villages and uncovering wild and wonderful national parks.
In 2017, Mountain Kingdoms MD, Steve Berry, organised and led an expedition into the remote mountains and valleys surrounding Gangkar Punsum in Bhutan. Steve was accompanied by scientist and fellow ‘yeti hunter’, Mark Evans, a crew from Icon Films and a large support team. They were there to make a film for Discovery Channel's Animal Planet and Steve's brief was to search for evidence of the Yeti.
