Everest Base Camp in Style          

Incredible trip!

What an incredible trip! An amazing experience from start to finish. The guides and the porters were excellent and the Nepalese people are so friendly. Trip was well planned to maximise our time there

Silk Road to Samarkand          

The Silk Road brought to life

Amazing sights which really brought the history of the Silk Road to life. Plus: excellent food, comfortable accommodation and a genuinely warm welcome from the local people we met. And our guide, the lovely Shahnoza, was outstanding! We also thoroughly recommend the Fergana Valley extension - we will never forget the sight and sound of silk worm larvae munching their way through a bowl of fresh mulberry leaves!

One of my best ever holidays

This was a real cultural experience, one of my best ever holidays. Contributing factors included a brilliant bunch of guests, our very hard-working tour guide and exposure to a wide variety of food styles at dinner times. Uzbek people are incredibly friendly and I felt very safe wandering about Tashkent and Samarkand As a result, I stayed an extra 2 nights on my own in Samarkand.

Amazing monuments and mountains

This trip gave a really good insight into the history of Uzbekistan and the key role it played when the Silk Road was at its height. I loved the city tours where we visited some amazing monuments which our tour guide introduced us to in an interesting and informative way. I also enjoyed the opportunity to visit the villages in the mountain areas as that allowed us to see completely different parts of the country, and see how people in those areas live.

Silk Road Mountains & Monuments

A nice balance of sightseeing and hill walking.

Silk Road Mountains & Monuments

The different culture, people, food and landscapes - natural and city - monuments, abundance of trees. Friendly encounters with Uzbek people. Interesting food.

Annapurna Sanctuary          

Mountain splendour

The trek up to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) - being there to enjoy the splendour of the mountains and watching the sun rise. Awe-inspiring!


A wonderful trip

A wonderful trip. Everything was so well organised: the pre-trip information, the flexibility of booking extra days before and after the walk, and our excellent guide who took care of everything whilst we were in Spain. This was much more than a walking holiday - it was a shared experience which we started walking with strangers and ended with friends.

A bucket list experience of a lifetime

First, a little context - we are late 50’s, used to mostly flat walking in the UK, but regular visitors to the gym and trekking abroad. This adventure was well paced with a well thought through itinerary, as we have come to expect from MK. We will not hesitate to use this company again. Dwarika’s hotel in Kathmandu is probably in our top 3 hotels that we have ever stayed in. Extend your stay here if you can. Everest Summit Lodges were very good. Tea houses of variable quality but always a decent nights sleep thanks to good quality sleeping bags and hot water bottles provided! On previous MK holidays, we have thought our guides to be very good, but on this occasion, our guide Kami was simply the best! Having been born in the area and previously summited Everest, he knew everyone and every stone, with an extensive knowledge of flora and fauna; he was clearly well loved and well respected. Without his helping handand that of our porter, I’m not sure we would have made it to Base Camp. The trip is classified Strenuous and rightly so, particularly during the last stretch to Base Camp when lower oxygen levels are more noticeable and the terrain more challenging. The itinerary gives good opportunity for acclimatisation, but the downside of this is that you are walking (typically 7.30am to 4pm with an hour for lunch) for 14 days in a row. For acclimatisation days, do not read “rest days”! That said, the scenery throughout was simply stunning, the people so friendly and the sense of achievement great. There is so much to see and enjoy at every stage of this trip, the memories of which will stay with us for a lifetime.

Took my breath away

Took my breath away from start to finish, was even better than I had hoped for. Great guides and porters and the Nepalese are such a beautiful people you can’t help but fall in love with the place. I saw things and places on the trek that I will think of daily till I finally pop off.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Once in a lifetime trip

Once in a lifetime trip. Excellent service received from booking and the 2 year delay due to lockdown. Kept regularly informed with options. The trek company in Nepal were outstanding. Very attentive and helpful. From Khim in Kathmandu to Mingma our guide who was excellent and provided a full cultural experience. Would highly recommend Mountain Kingdoms to anyone thinking of a trek.

Manaslu Circuit          

Great trek for seeing local life

Scenery was exceptional and greater opportunity to see how local people lived than other treks in Nepal. Absence of roads and cars was an absolute bonus!

Once in a lifetime trip

I booked this trip on the expectation that it would be a once in a lifetime trip, and so it turned out. I couldn’t fault anything. The accommodation, guides and food were fantastic and coupled with the magnificent scenery this was indeed a trip that was unforgettable and will never be beaten.


No wories!

Fantastic company. Well organised and a great guide. Didn’t need to worry about a thing except my walking gear and keeping up my energy!


A very enjoyable Trek in Nepal

We finally made it.......A very enjoyable trek. Very well organised by the Mountain Kingdoms team especially with a 2 year delay due to the Covid situation and not to mention the constantly changing rules! Well done MK

Annapurna & Everest in Style          

Exhilarating and exciting

The scenery was wonderful and meeting local people a real joy. We could describe our experience as both exhilarating and exciting, not to mention exhausting at times but were always refreshed by excellent hospitality at the various lodges. Thanks due to all concerned.

Wonderful trek

Wonderful trek. Amazing views. Acclimatisation days were well spaced out and timed to make sure we all made it to EBC. The luxury lodges were comfortable, clean and welcoming with plenty of good Nepalese food. We had an excellent guide in Dambe, - friendly, genuinely keen that we saw everything, knowledgeable, very good English, nothing was too much trouble. Couldn't have been a better trek.

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

Gentle Walking in Costa Rica

A truly lovely holiday that certainly met our expectations. The activities are well managed, but some of the walking may not be considered gentle by some.

A great trip!

This trip had 2 years in the planning due to Covid delays, any concerns and questions were always handled promptly by Harry Gray at Mountain Kingdom, the flights and transfers were all arranged and the company organising the trek up Killi took care of all our requirements. The trek itself was a fabulous experience, the guides , cook and porters were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. We had medical checks morning and evening. Summit day was a hard but unforgettable experience. A great trip.

Great experience and huge sense of achievement!

I trekked the Lemosho Route up Mount Kilimanjaro on February 2022. It was a great experience. Mountain Kingdoms did an excellent job sorting out the arrangements, which had to be changed several times because of the Covid pandemic. On the ground in in Tanzania everything worked excellently well and the trek team did an outstanding job of looking after us, both in terms of taking very good care to get us properly acclimatised and just generally in the friendly, good-humoured way they looked after us. The trek is not for the faint-hearted and deserves its 'strenuous' rating, but with good preparation and taking account of the first-class advice from the guides we made it to the top, which gave a real sense of achievement and is something I shall remember for a long time - a high point in every sense!
