Everest Base Camp in Style 24/01/2020
A real life affirming experience
A real life affirming experience. I have always dreamed of making this trip and a recent sabbatical from work allowed me to do so. I cannot remember the last time I wrote to a company to commend their service but felt compelled to do so on this occasion! The obvious planning that has gone into the itinerary shows through. Some off the best days were the acclimatisation days off the beaten track. Our guide was sensational. He really fostered a great group spirit and got all 10 of us onto the Base Camp. An incredible achievement. Nothing was too much trouble for the whole team. I cannot praise him and his team highly enough. I have already recommended this trip to three people who were contemplating the trek. Already looking at your brochure for next year! Good Job!

Everest Base Camp in Style 11/01/2020
EBC in Style - November 2019
Outstanding experience, from beginning to end! This trip is definitely a life-list adventure for anyone who loves the mountains. The scenery is world class, and the infrastructure provides an accessible means to high-altitude trekking. The local staff were exceptional, from our guides, Kami and Phurba, who were very knowledgeable, experienced, and attentive, to the hard-working porters and excellent service at the Everest Summit Lodges. To top it off, the weather in November was perfect. Throughout the process, Mountain Kingdoms made the journey a pleasure to accomplish. Highly recommended!

Mini Annapurna Circuit 31/12/2019
Amazing Annapurna Trek - Private Departure
The "Mini Annapurna Circuit" was beautiful. Highly recommended for the incomparable, stunning scenery of the Annapurna Region. If you're up for a more rigorous trek, I'd recommend a less traveled area (Nar-Fu) because of increasing roads and crowds. This is an overall great introduction to Nepalese culture and beauty.

Morocco Coastal Trek & Essaouira 20/12/2019
Easy Morocco trek
This was a delightfully relaxing combination of a fairly easy trek taking in superb coastal scenery and the fascinating sights of Marrakech and Essaouira. Just the right balance of seaside and souks!

Gentle Trekking & Luxury Lodges, Annapurna Foothills - Private Departure
A fabulous holiday - about 4-5 hours of walking each day (each day is different) with beautiful scenery and walking through remote villages. Every afternoon there is some down time, so a good time to relax and detox! Everyone is very welcoming and service is amazing.
Miss Withers & Mr Murphy, Surrey
An amazing trip and the scenery was WOW!
WOW! WOW! WOW! Had an absolutely fabulous time trekking the Annapurna Foothills... everything was so well organised and our guides and porters all did a fabulous job. The scenery was outstanding and as a keen photographer I had a field day! Thank you Mountain Kingdoms, I will be back!

Three High Passes to Everest 05/12/2019
Three High Passes
The trip is tough mentally and physically. Expect some tough days and washing your armpits in a dog bowl. However, Nepal is amazing and the whole trip was too much to absorb! I highly recommend the trip

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan 05/12/2019
It was very good to have the mix of sightseeing and trekking. Walking in the beautiful countryside was a nice counterbalance to the temples and Dzongs, and gave an insight to everyday rural life. Seeing the Black Necked Crane Festival was one of the highlights, as was the trek to the Tiger Nest Monastery. Staying in a homestay was interesting - definitely worthwhile and an opportunity to have a Hot Stone Bath. It's a wonderful country - lovely people, stunning countryside - but be prepared to come home tired. To make the most of the time there, you inevitably have to move from hotel to hotel and there's not much down time.

Everest Base Camp Trek 05/12/2019
Everest Base Camp Trek
This trip was exactly as I hoped: breathtaking views, incredible food, and amazing people. The trek itself was great but wouldn't have been as good without the Nepalese guides and people to meet along the way.

Monte Rosa Ascent 4,634m/15,203ft 05/12/2019
A fantastic trip
This is a fantastic trip with time spent refreshing skills on the Trift Glacier, an ascent of two 4000m mountains which are superb climbing objectives in their own right. The Saas Grund Valley is the perfect place to acclimatise for Monte Rosa as both the routes and the huts are quieter than around Chamonix/Mont Blanc area and therefore you have a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience. The Monte Rosa hut is a new building (2009) and provides great food and accommodation. Monte Rosa is a wonderful mountain to climb, with great views, not too technically challenging but extremely rewarding. Kevin O'Neale is a highly experienced IFMGA guide with many years of alpine guiding under his belt, so you are in a very safe pair of hands

Three High Passes to Everest 04/12/2019
Three High Passes - trek of a lifetime!
This was a superb walking holiday in what must be some of the grandest scenery in the world. It was great to experience the wider range of scenery and views on the Three High Passes trek (compared to the basic Everest Base Camp route), and also to venture into valleys and over passes with many fewer people than the main EBC route. The views from the Renjo La, and Kongma La especially were absolutely stunning. I think MK's choice to do the trek in the clockwise direction was a good decision, and the acclimatisation schedule certainly worked fairly well for me, with no more than occasional minor headaches. The small group (6 clients, 2 sherpa guides and 3 porters) was a good size, we bonded well and the sherpa guides were very attentive and responsive to our needs. Visiting the Everest region has always been high on my wish list, and this trek more than lived up to expectations. A trip I will remember for ever, for all the right reasons! Thank you MK and the local team in Nepal!

Three High Passes to Everest 04/12/2019
Three High Passes, Kathmandu and Chitwan.
I returned safely from my trip to Nepal early on Friday morning. I want to thank Mountain Kingdoms for organizing such a fantastic trip. It was a truly wonderful experience and has left so many memories that will last a lifetime. The mountains around the Three High passes and Everest were truly majestic and striking in their size and magnitude. The trip to Chitwan was a wonderful contrast and provided the opportunity to view a lot of exciting wildlife and many wild birds. Throughout I felt that you had chosen local partners of the highest quality and felt so well looked after and catered for. Our Sherpa guides and porters, lead by Pasang Temba Sherpa, were outstanding; professional, informative and made the group feel so welcome in their country. The local agents in Kathmandu were also excellent. Punctual for every meeting point and so helpful in negotiating the busy streets of Kathmandu and,slightly confusing at times, airport check ins. In Chitwan the staff at the Eco Lodge Resort were outstanding also. Very friendly and some excellent and very knowledgeable wildlife guides. Nothing was too much trouble for them. This was an at times challenging but always extremely rewarding trip; much of this due to the organisation and partnerships that you had arranged. Once again many thanks. I would have no hesitation in using your services again for possible future trips of the same nature. Best wishes Mr Robert Jackson

Kangchenjunga North & South Base Camps 27/11/2019
Excellent Trekking Experience
An excellent trekking experience and one of the best trips we have undertaken. The remote, wild and unspoiled mountain environment gave the trip an exploration feel to it. It was tough at times but all the better for being so. Organisation and last minute changes were handled efficiently by the local agents under the guidance of the Trip Leader Raj. I would recommend the trip to anyone wanting a challenging mountain trek.

Annapurna & Everest in Style 25/11/2019
Annapurna and Everest in style
A good introduction to the Annapurna and Everest regions of Nepal. Trek was well organised and well paced, led by helpful and knowledgeable staff in both regions.

Manaslu Circuit 25/11/2019
A brilliant trek
This was the first trek I have done and it was brilliant. A superb route, great and varied views and scenery, from valleys up to high mountain passes. It was well organised and run with a great leader and team of sherpas.

Luxury Lodges to Machu Picchu 24/11/2019
Trekking in comfort
Spending time in the Sacred Valley, seeing the sites and acclimatising to the altitude was a great way to start our holiday. The Salkantay trek itself was everything we'd hoped it would be, with fabulous scenery, trails that challenged us and provided a feeling of achievement, luxurious lodges with food to match and good weather! Machu Picchu lived up to our expectations and was a perfect end to the trip.
