Cardamom Mountains Trails          

Cardomom Mountain Trails

The whole Cambodia experience was exceptional and provided an intimate insight into the lives of its people, the wildlife, villages, landscape, history and culture as well as its shortcomings and problems. Mountain Kingdoms and their Cambodian partners are to be highly commended on producing such a beautifully balanced trip with so much packed into a short period of time without the group members feeling rushed or overwhelmed. The hotels were outstanding and the staff and guides gracious, helpful, patient and so very friendly as were other Cambodians we met. It was touching to be often thanked for visiting their country.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Gentle Walking Bhutan

Thank you for a fabulous holiday, my husband and I enjoyed every minute and have many precious memories. We look forward to planning our next trip!

Monte Rosa Rando          

Fantastic trip

This is a lovely trip, offering a good walk but with enough easier stretches to allow time to look around and admire the great views and lovely landscapes. A comfortable bed each night and really excellent food make this a perfect week’s walking holiday.

Mercantour & the Valley of Wonders          

Wonderful walking holiday

This was an immensely enjoyable trip, with superb walking, stunning alpine scenery, abundance of wildlife, cultural interest, and great food – all packed into five days.

Wild Mustang Trek          

Amazing Wild Mustang Adventure

All of Mustang is amazing, but few people get to explore the string of villages to the north of Lo Manthang, or to exit the kingdom down the east side of the Kali Gandaki river. This trek takes you to some pretty remote places and camping and pack animals are needed to get you there. In particular the walking down the east side is much dryer and less inhabited. For me this was part of the attraction. There are some real gems of places to find; the very remote village of Samdzong all on its own in the middle of nowhere, the oases of Yara, Ghara, Tangye, and other hamlets too many to mention. There some absolutely incredible fluted cliffs, worn down into strange shapes by the hand of time, and peppered with ancient cave dwellings. If you are looking for something really wild - this is it!!

Husky Sledding & Northern Lights Adventure          

Northern Norway experience

Northern Norway in winter truly is a magical winter wonderland. I was lucky enough to see the northern lights three nights running and they really do dance across the sky! Driving my own husky team was the icing on the cake.

Torres del Paine Circuit, Chile          

Torres del Paine Circuit - Private Departure

This is an amazing 8 day trek in the national park. The scenery was spectacular. The flora was amazing and the trip was a bird lovers paradise. Well paced and well supported. The ECO camp is a real treat. The staff very helpful. Highly recommended!

Annapurna Base Camp in Style          

Excellent trekking out of season - Private Departure

We opted for a mid December start for our private trek to Annapurna Base Camp, so well beyond the peak trekking season. What a good choice this turned out to be! We understand that the paths, though certainly not deserted, were much quieter than in peak season. The tea houses and lodges were also quiet, enabling us to soak up the atmosphere and environment in relative peace and quiet. Our initial concerns about the cold did not materialise, partly because it was sunny virtually every day and also because the equipment provided by Mountain Kingdoms (sleeping bag and inner, down jacket, soft pillows and hot water bottle) were all good quality and warming. With the thick blankets provided at each location and wearing our thermal underwear/thick socks at night at higher altitudes, the danger was being too hot at night rather than too cold.The itinerary is excellent and enables plenty of time to be spent at the lodges and tea houses on arrival, soaking up the atmosphere and views. This was aided by it being a private journey as we could go at our own pace each day. This is not a difficult trek because the paths are extremely well maintained with much of the route being on slate/smooth rock. Accommodations were good, including the tea houses and the food was plentiful to keep us trekking.

Three High Passes to Everest          

Three High Passes

An excellent but challenging three weeks trekking with a great sense of achievement when completed. Success was greatly assisted by the professionalism and hard work of the Guides and Porters who were excellent.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Brilliant Experience

The Trek was an outstanding experience! It is something I will never forget. The views were outstanding and leave a lasting impression on your mind. There were a number of challenges which push you but the rewards were amazing. The route was excellent and the extra Trek to the lakes were the 'icing on the cake'. I would recommend this adventure to those who love natural scenery and outstanding beauty. Words don't really do justice to the adventure, you need to experience it.

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills          

This was the best trek ever!

I loved everything about it: the lodges, the staff, the route, the scenery, the views... The Mountain Kingdoms organisation was excellent and gave us the best of both worlds with a superb trek and city/cultural visits with delightful hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

Brilliant Bhutan

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent holiday to Bhutan. It is a beautiful Country with stunning scenery and lovely people. The standard of hotels and the food were better than we had expected and our guide and support team couldn't have done more to make our trip more enjoyable. The information and support we received from Mountain Kingdoms, both before and during our trip was impressive and our small group of 12 gelled well during our two weeks together. November was also a very good time to visit Bhutan, the weather being superb during our stay, with lovely blue skies and clear visibility. Although cold at night, it was warmer than we had expected during the days and my very expensive winter jacket remained in my case for the duration!

Manaslu Circuit          

Life changing experience

Your company via Kev's recommendation had immeasurably enhanced my travels and my life. Thank you so much for all you do.

Hill Tribe Trails of Northern Vietnam          

I loved this holiday

It was everything I had hoped and that you had described in the brochure. Hanoi was exciting, I loved the streets and buildings and the buzz of the street life. The walking was in the most beautiful countryside which has stayed with me. I enjoyed the casual meetings with the local people for example at a Sunday market which was completely untouristy. Enjoyed the walking very much on lovely paths. Food was excellent, delicious and light and plentiful! Cruise on Ha Long Bay was relaxing, beautiful, comfortable and a very welcome rest at end of holiday. Accommodation superb throughout.

Golden Trails of Burma          

All that we could have hoped for

The trip was all that we could have hoped for. The itinerary was excellent. The organisation was faultless, the transport modern and comfortable and the accommodation was of a high standard everywhere.

Golden Trails of Burma          

Great variety, great guide

This holiday visits a great variety of locations. It was lovely to see the tourist sites and also to see how people live and to get close to the local people. Nyi Nyi was an excellent guide. He made all the organisation look effortless and he was really knowledgeable about his country.

Annapurna Sanctuary          

Annapurna Sanctuary Trek

We had a brilliant time on our trek and it was even better as we had the same Guide that we had five years ago on another trek in Nepal - Was lovely to see him again and to know that we had a great Guide leading us. Our two Porters were the most happiest of guys and it was really good to share experiences with them and have a laugh. The walking was great and no matter how many times you visit Nepal and the Himalaya you are always taken back by the vastness and beauty of it all. Must say the provided sleeping bags and fleece liners worked a treat the higher up we went. Very enjoyable..
