Cultural Highlights of Nepal, Bhutan & Tibet          

Cultural Highlights of Nepal, Bhutan & Tibet

We had a very memorable adventure with experiences we will remember for along time!

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills          

Gentle trekking and luxury lodges Annapurna

A marvellous trek, the accommodation and food are excellent and we had a truly wonderful holiday. I would advise people to prepare themselves for a day of climbing stone steps on the route to Gandruk and then treat yourself to a foot massage (offered at the lodge) once you get there!

Cultural Highlights of Nepal, Bhutan & Tibet          

A great introduction to 3 Himalayan countries

An enjoyable trip to see the cultural highlights of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. A little bit of trekking involved in Bhutan but well worth it to see the Tigers Nest Monastery. All the guides and drivers were helpful, knowledgeable and spoke good English. The hotels were comfortable and we enjoyed a lot of traditional food as most meals were included. Each country is predominantly Buddhist but this is interpreted differently depending on the country, so it was a fascinating insight into the slightly confusing world of Buddha (or Buddhas as I learnt there are more than one!).

Three High Passes to Everest          

Three High Passes to Everest

My second trip with MK went well. I made new friends and had a great time with them. Particularly, our great guide, one of the nicest guys I’ve met in Nepal so far. Kind and humble, but with a huge amount of experience. He’d been over all the passes at least 20 times. We trusted his advice and all felt safe with him. Also,special thanks to MK's flight manager, April for changing the Jet flights to Oman Air. That was fantastic, and I was very pleased to get home without any delays.

Exceeded expectations

Everything was so well organised down to the last detail. Most of the hotels were fantastic with either lovely gardens and/ or stunning views of the Himalayas.We liked the fact that we didn't have to worry about anything and therefore just enjoy the trip. Everything including the mini buses were very comfortable and the food was very good. Both guides looked after us extremely well. Both were very professional, always on time and able to answer any questions we put to them.

Being able to travel to Nepal and Bhutan without a worry as everything was arranged so efficiently. Tour leaders were excellent and listened to us if we wanted to do other things than the ones planned. I would definitely book with you again.I was very impressed by the efficiency of all the staff involved in organising and leading my trip. Well done Mountain Kingdoms.

Dana Trek to Petra

I enjoyed the Mountain Kingdoms philosophy of using less crowded routes and supporting local enterprise and culture.

Luxury Lodges to Ama Dablam Base Camp          

Luxury Lodges to Ama Dablam Base Camp

Generally excellent. As with all group walking holidays they are going to attract walkers of differing abilities. The more detailed information/ grading of walks that can be provided would be most helpful to all.

Mera Peak 6,476m / 21,246ft          

Mera Peak - successful summit on 11 April 2019

Fantastic experience with Mountain Kingdoms! We had a party of 4, all of whom summitted Mera Peak on 11 April 2019. We had an excellent guide and team looking after us, changes to the itinerary and route that were made necessary due to heavy snowfall were dealt with smoothly and professionally. A good overview of our acclimatisation progress was kept by our guide, to gauge our readiness for the summit attempt. We were provided good food, snacks and hot drinks, even on the trail. The support of the local organisation was superb and we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan          

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan - highly recommended

Having always harboured a desire to travel to Bhutan, but lacking the confidence to face the bewildering set of rules required to enter and stay in the country, we used Mountain Kingdoms to arrange the trip for us. Travelling as a couple, we joined a group of eight. The whole experience, from first contacting Mountain Kingdoms to arriving back from the trip, was excellent. Mountain Kingdoms adapted to our relatively late addition to the tour and gave sound advice as we prepared to travel. In-country, the quality of the itinerary was excellent and the expertise of the guides was incredibly impressive. We were looked after well, and they made sure we got the absolute most out of our limited time.

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills          

Adventure of a lifetime

No praise can be too high for the wonderful guides and porters we had on our trek and also the superb staff at the lodges on the Ghandruk Loop. We would question if this was 'gentle' trekking however as we all found it far from gentle but lived to tell the tale! On the first full day for example we climbed up and down 4,500 steep stone steps so perhaps the word gentle is not an accurate description at all. Overall though we are so glad we went and the views of the Himalyas take your breath away.

Three High Passes to Everest          

A trip of a life time

From the moment we flew into the Himalaya’s the views were amazing, the trekking took you through rural areas and then into some really remote landscapes where the scenery is truly breathtaking. The trekking was hard at times but worth the effort and it made you feel like you were on top of the world. The tea houses were a welcome site and I was surprised at the choices of food that was offered.

Taste of the Himalayas

This holiday exceeded expectations. Everything was organised really well. We didn't have to worry about anything - just enjoy the holiday. The hotels were really comfortable and most had beautiful gardens and/or stunning views of the mountains. Both guides were so professional, knowledgeable and lots of fun. Loved the contrast between the two countries. The flight into Bhutan with views of Everest were phenomenal and the beauty, nature and scenery of both countries is something we will always remember. Thank you Mountain Kingdom for giving us the trip of a lifetime although we will probably go back!!

Luxury Lodges to Ama Dablam Base Camp          

Luxury Lodges to AMA Dablam B.C.

Excellent trek, best in 20yrs of trekking. A really great guide and team.

Nepal & Bhutan Explorer          

An Excellent Holiday

A wonderful trip seeing many sights and scenery that you probably wouldn’t see if you arranged the trip yourself. It was very comforting to be staying in such beautiful places knowing you were safely being looked after. Well done Mountain Kingdoms.

Annapurna Base Camp in Style          

Wonderful trek that we will remember forever

We booked the ABC luxury lodges - a private tour. On day 3 it became apparent that the area was at risk to avalanches and we were advised to change our trek. We were happy to do this and take our guide's advice, so we ventured to another area - unfortunately due to ice on the ridge we again had to make a decision to re think our plans. We agreed that we would like to see more of the villages, Nepal way of life, so we ventured lower - some quite tough walking still, but through forests and villages. The original plan went our the window but we had an amazing, wonderful trip. Our guide's knowledge meant we saw ladies making butter from the Water Buffalo milk, we tasted Millet Liquor, we rescued a tired Buffalo, held baby goats, chatted to locals and children, and saw the most spectacular scenery both mountainous and farming and village life. - Absolutely wonderful

Langtang Valley Trek          

One of the best things I’ve experienced.

Trekking in the Langtang Valley was undoubtedly one of the best things I’ve experienced. I followed the trail along the valley to Kyanjin Gompa where the views were truly incredible. Each night I stopped in simple tea houses and received the warmest of welcomes from the lovely local people, as well as some very tasty dal bhat. It felt good to be supporting the communities who had lost so much in the 2015 earthquake but have done wonders in rebuilding their homes and reopening the trails. Now they just need trekkers to return to help restore their livelihood. I encourage anyone to go and experience Langtang for themselves, you won’t be disappointed.

Mountains & Deserts of Oman          

Well thought out itinerary

The trip was absolutely fantastic! One of the best holidays I have ever been on. We had a fantastic and competent guide and the support staff were very personable as well. The itinerary was varied which was fantastic and there were a number of nice surprises like visiting the underwater cave, the aqua hiking which provided much hilarity as we had never heard or experienced such a thing. Loved the pace of the trip, loved the country, loved the staff, and the other members of the group. Special mention also goes to my driver who took us to visit his home which was very special. Top marks!

Definitive Cultural Tour of Sri Lanka          

Sri Lanka 2019

Honestly, they never fail to amaze me with the amount of activities they can tie into one trip! Its hard to write all the amazing things that I experienced into one small review but all I can say if you're thinking about going to Sri Lanka this tour is for you! Hotels were stunning! One even had two floors to it!! Practically an apartment by my opinion! All the people in Sri Lanka are absolutely lovely and the amount of monuments and temples you will be able to see will amaze you! Nothing but gorgeous scenery and delicious smelling food! Only downside is I didn't bring enough bug spray! Couldn't recommend it enough either way!
