As Green Shoots Emerge within Travel

As Green Shoots Emerge within Travel

After the long lockdown, June has seen a very welcome touch of normality return to the Mountain Kingdoms office. Many of you have started thinking about future adventures, and so Niki, Harry, Seraphina and Kirsty have joined our MD, Steve Berry, back in the office to help with all your enquiries.

During the time away we have been walking the trails close to home, making the most of the lovely Cotswold countryside around us, but like you we can’t wait to start exploring further afield again. We have also been busy improving our website, putting together exciting new ideas to add to our inspirational range of holidays and we’re talking to our overseas partners about arrangements to keep you safe on your travels – watch this space!

Travel is in all our hearts, but none more so than Steve. As a young man he set forth on innumerable adventures, mostly climbing, but also epic explorations, and long remote treks. He eventually turned his passion into a purpose and is incredibly proud that, 33 years on, Mountain Kingdoms still offers some of the best travel experiences to the most remarkable places in the world.

Steve and the team are just waiting to welcome you back (or even on your first trip with us!) but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy this short film from our archives.

2021 Photo Competition Winner

2021 Photo Competition Winner

We had a superb shortlist of monthly winners from which to select our travel photo of the year, but after much deliberation and debate our winner was this stunning festival image taken in Ladakh by Chris Martin. We all just loved the colour, movement and energy of the dancers, as well as the technical achievement in capturing that moment. Chris has told us how he did it...

'I was travelling with my American photo friend and we had hired a 4x4 in Leh to drive us to spend a couple of nights in Lamayuru. We were up at first light to walk up to the Monastery. We were lucky to be the only foreigners on site amongst a small group of local villagers. Suddenly out of a doorway in the courtyard came monks dressed in amazing finery. They then started to dance in total silence. The only sound was the swooshing of their garments ! It was quite eerie ! The dance went on for around ten minutes in which time I managed to acquire some interesting pictures.'

Many congratulations to Chris, his prize is £250 towards a Mountain Kingdoms holiday. We look forward to seeing what brilliant images he captures on his future travels.

December competition winner

December competition winner

Our final winner for 2022 is Chris Holland with this superb photo of Ama Dablam in the Everest region of Nepal. Not only has Chris captured the beauty of this magnificent mountain but the stupa in the foreground (with its slightly cheeky expression) adds real interest and character as well as a sense of symmetry and scale between the man made and natural worlds. Many congratulations to Chris who wins our last Water-to-Go bottle of the year.
