Hidden Valleys of Bhutan          

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan

An excellent holiday full of variety and new experiences.

Kangchenjunga North & South Base Camps          

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          

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          

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          

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.

Everest Base Camp in Style          

Base Camp in Some Style!

A real life affirming experience. It was a trip I had always dreamed of making. The trip from start to finish was everything I had hoped it would be. The attention to detail in the planning and the top notch guide made sure our group of 10 with an average age of 55 bonded really well and we all made our objective. The itinerary and the knowledge of our guide delivered a wonderful insight into the history of the Khumbu valley and the culture of the Sherpa People. For anyone else like me who has always dreamed of doing this- do it- you will not be disappointed!

Definitive Cultural Tour of Nepal          

Defintive Cutural Tour of Nepal

This trip is perfect for the opportunity to see some of the sensational landscapes and cultural treasures of Nepal without the need for discomfort. Historic towns, picturesque villages, traditional rural life and exotic wildlife were just some of the attractions of this lovely trip and it was all enjoyed from the comfort of some wonderfully comfortable hotels. The warmth and friendliness of the local people was just the cherry on the cake. It was an inspiring journey at the same time as being a very relaxing experience.

Cordillera Real Traverse, Bolivia          

Royal range

Spectacular mountains, which are virtually deserted. Be prepared for days with no tracks, but superb views. A must are four season bag, good puffa jacket.... when sun goes down the temperature plummets. Very knowledgeable guide and excellent cook. If you love the mountains and deserted walking it’s a must.

Annapurna & Everest in Style          

Experience of a lifetime

We have wanted to visit Nepal for many years. Visiting two areas on the one trip was a real bonus. We were so glad we visited Annapurna area first as it helps with acclimatization as well as being so different to Everest area. The standard of lodges was good. The support staff and leaders were keen to ensure we enjoyed our visit to Nepal. We got the feeling of being very welcome. The mountain views and scenery exceeded our expectations as did the trip as a whole. Just a brilliant experience.

Manaslu Circuit          

Manaslu Trek, November 2019

Excellent

Lingshi Laya Trek          

Bhutan - a very special place.

Bhutan is a very special place. Fascinating culture and commitment to Gross National Happiness, in addition to terrific mountain scenery. The trek run by Mountain Kingdoms will give you a great experience.

Dagana Wilderness Trek          

True wilderness

The Dagana wilderness trek is not for the faint hearted but it was truly amazing. The scenery was breathtaking and varied. We climbed through forests and over remote mountain passes. We saw bears and so many different birds. The team who accompanied us couldn’t have been more lovely. Truly a trip of a lifetime

Silk Road to Samarkand          

An excellent introduction to Uzbekistan

Really enjoyed the experience, fellow travelers where delightful companions, and our local guide was very helpful and thoughtful.

Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trek          

Kumano Kodo trek

Excellent leader and fascinating to see rural and urban Japan. Good walking though forests. Interesting accommodation and lovely friendly hosts.

Manaslu Circuit          

Strenuous expedition in fabulous mountain scenery

A great circuit which starts with a trek up a spectacular gorge, then opens out into terrific high mountain terrain. Crossing the Larkya La was hard going but the gradient is never too great. This was our first Nepal adventure, so cannot compare with other more well known circuits like EBC or Annapurna. Teahouses were variable in quality (as you would expect) but the food was always plentiful and generally tasty. The final road transfer by jeep was as exciting as any other part of the trek! Great support from our two guides and terrific team of porters.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Brilliant and memorable trip to EBC and Gokyo

What a trip! Stupendous Himalayan scenery, blue skies, warm welcome and good food when we arrived at our tea houses after a long and hard day’s trekking or a shorter and easier day. Two particular highlights for me - being at Everest base camp and imagining what it must have been like for the early mountaineers to climb from there with their unsophisticated equipment and having already walked from Kathmandu to get there - and standing on top of Gokyo Ri with the views of Everest and her surrounding peaks in the sunshine. The insight into Sherpa life and the experience of being without all of our Western life trappings was wonderful. The bond formed within our small trekking group was excellent as we supported and encouraged each other. Out of all the trees available I am so glad I picked this one for its challenge, huge sense of achievement and variety.

Druk Path Trek          

Druk Path Trek October 2019

The whole trip was very well organised by Mountain Kingdoms and our guide in Bhutan, Karma, was brilliant - he was incredibly knowledgeable about his country and its culture. He also went out of his way to help me with my interest in birds, going out with me early one morning along the river in Punakha. He made a memorable trip even better.

Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lakes          

Absolutely Fantastic Adventure

From the time I first enquired about this trek I felt as if I was Mountain Kingdoms only customer. I mean that in a totally professional way. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff. I has lots of questions prior to the trek and they were all answered with enthusiasm and quality. The trek staff were outstanding at all times. The two young porters always had a smile on their faces. Our Sherpa guide 'Mingma Temba Sherpa' was nothing short of fantastic. At all times he ensured that our safety was never compromised, that we always had general information about our current location on the trek and the relevant cultural experiences we found ourselves in. For me he added great quality to my adventure for which I shall remain always appreciative. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mountain Kingdoms to anyone. they made a dream come true.

Lunana Snowman Trek          

A Surreal Trek of Immense Magnitude Along the Border Between Bhutan & Tibet

The Bhutan-Snowman Trek is arguably the toughest trek in the world. Being conscious of the fact that Mountain Kingdoms have been successfully operating this trek for 2-3 decades gave me a high degree of confidence in their professionalism and ability to succeed. The Western Leader was well qualified, constantly engaging, and made sound decisions when necessary in conjunction with the Bhutanese Sirdar (e.g. postponing a rest day to avoid a bad snowstorm crossing the highest pass). He kept abreast of the group's progress including, importantly, the back markers, as well as the morale of individuals, which helped to maximise our teams’ chances of success. Whilst seemingly a small contribution, he took the trouble to carry chocolate bars to give us a welcome boost on conquering every high pass - much appreciated by all. The Bhutanese crew (including pack animal herders) were universally excellent and besides great meals, provided fantastic support to every one of us. Also not resting on their laurels, this was the first commercial Mountain Kingdoms group to trek the new exit route out of Lunana (across the mountains between Sake-la and Maurothang), featuring a truly memorable couple of days in unspoiled wilderness. It was somewhat fitting, that crossing the final high pass, the Chachi-La, we had the most amazing crystal clear views of the Eastern Himalayas along the border with Tibet, including the infamous Gangar Puensum, the highest unclimbed mountain on the planet. All our prayers came true that day. Put in perspective, the photos that we took that day were completely cloud-free, unlike many of those in the guide-books! Sincere thanks for an experience which I will never ever forget.

Complete Patagonia - Paine & Fitz Roy          

Paine & Fitz Roy

A great trip with time spent exploring these two mountain areas and a couple of enjoyable boat trips to experience different glaciers. The walks in each area allowed us to see the two areas and we had stunning views of the Central Towers of Paine and Fitz Roy, with only Cerro Torre remaining hidden behind cloud. The two main centres were different, but added to the experience - the EcoCamp in Paine was a great place to stay with wonderful food and a Pisco Sour each day. The hotel in El Chalten was comfortable with a host of places to eat well in the locality. It was great to see these stunning mountains that I had read about, especially with andean Gondors soaring around each day. Overall a trip that met all my expectations and was thoroughly enjoyable with a good group.
