New holidays for 2017
Breathtaking wildlife encounters in the African wilderness, unforgettable cruises, challenging remote treks and more 'in style' trips - we’ve had a busy 2016 so far researching new adventures, and we’re excited to be introducing over 20 brand new trips for 2017.
Supporting Nepal - Nepal Earthquake Appeal
Mountain Kingdoms have for many years supported a number of
Nepalese charities and over the past week we have recommended that

this, we are able to recommend the following charities, we are
confident that all money donated through them will go directly to
helping the people of Nepal.

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.
