New Brochure - Celebrating 30 Years as Walking, Trekking & Adventure Specialists

New Brochure - Celebrating 30 Years as Walking, Trekking & Adventure Specialists

On 1st September 1987 Steve Berry and his business partner opened for business in a little attic office in Bristol. In those far off days we were called Himalayan Kingdoms, as the Himalaya was, and remains to this day, Steve's favourite corner of the world.

Over the years the business grew and developed; and in 2008 we changed our name to Mountain Kingdoms to better reflect our diverse destinations. Himalaya Kingdoms' first ever trek was to Sikkim, Kangchenjunga & the Goecha La and, 30 years on, Mountain Kingdoms are still continually on the lookout for epic new adventures and undiscovered trekking routes.

When Steve looks back over those 30 years he is immensely proud of all the incredible adventures we have pioneered, and pleased that the code of ethics they started with has remained central to the business. Mountain Kingdoms' continue to put customer service first and foremost, and refuse to compromise on acclimatisation and safety in the carefully thought out, often innovative itineraries. The quality hotels and lodges are hand-picked, and top-notch leaders are experts in their field.

We are continually looking out for new and exciting trips, and this year are delighted to bring you 20 brand new far-flung adventures; from husky sledding in northern Norway to a wild walking safari in South Africa, we’re sure that there will be something for everyone.

Mountain Kingdoms' proudly remain an independent company offering first-hand knowledge and expertise; there is always a friendly member of the team available to answer your queries, so do give us a call.

I hope this fantastic brochure provides lots of inspiration for your travels and look forward to seeing you on a Mountain Kingdoms holiday in 2018.

If you would like to receive our new brochure simply give us a call or complete our Brochure request form.

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

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.
