Gentle Walking Eastern Bhutan          

Bhutan's unique charm

It was my 6th time in Bhutan, over 33 years, and my third time in East Bhutan. It was fantastic to see how the country has developed, particularly with good roads and hotels, but kept its essential rural charm, social structure and uniqueness. I particularly wanted to have several days in the Lhuentse Valley in East Bhutan, which is another world of charm and remoteness. Also, the 2 hour walk down from the Ura La to Ura Village must be one of the best short walks in the Himalayas.

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan          

Stunning views

I enjoyed the remoteness, scenery, stunning views of the mountains & visiting the many Dzongs.

Annapurna Sanctuary          

Awesome Annapurna Sanctuary

Everything about this trip was awesome. When we arrived at Annapurna Base Camp it was snowing and the snow continued all day. The next morning dawned cold and clear with the most breathtaking views. Thanks to Mountain Kingdoms for such a well organized trip and to our guide Sun and our porter for such a fantastic job.

Bhutan - lots to love

I loved the scenery, mountains, mountain passes and fabulous descents. The monasteries, temples and Dzongs.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan          

Perfect tour of Bhutan

An absolutely perfect tour! As the only German present I met four lovely people from the UK, a wonderful and expert Bhutanese guide and Michael Rutland, who enriched the tour by telling us a lot about his long-lasting experiences with and in that beautiful country. The tour itself was well-designed and we usually had enough time to take in and then "digest" the multi-coloured experiences we had every day. Accomodation and food were absolutely satisfactory.

Gentle Walking Eastern Bhutan          

Fascinating destination

Bhutan remains a fascinating and unique destination, and it was a privilege to travel to the east as well as revisit some of the western highlights

Manaslu Circuit          

Manaslu Circuit - thoroughly recommended!

A fantastic trip. Our guide and Sherpas had everything well organized and made the experience both fun and greatly contributed to our knowledge of mountain life. The porters were amazing. The lack of roads in the valley highlights the remoteness, and the scenery fabulous. The tea houses were a good standard, the food tasty and plentiful. All transport was great fun. The team could not have done more to make it go well. The trek grading is correct, and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Nepal          

A varied tour of Nepal

Visited really lovely varied, interesting locations. Very well organised.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan          

Wonderful tour of Bhutan

A wonderful holiday discovering the remarkable features of Bhutan: scenery, architecture, national dress and Buddhist customs and traditions. The Bhutanese are friendly and gentle people who added a lot to our overall experience. We enjoyed expert and knowledgeable guiding both from local guide, Tshering and from Michael Rutland whose experiences of Bhutan over 50 years are unique. We were privileged to be invited to his home for a special evening watching the film "A Yak in the Classroom".

Manaslu Circuit          

Spectacular Manaslu

Spectacular and diverse scenery, fascinating Tibetan culture, superbly led. And great food throughout!

Manaslu Circuit          

Fabulous Manaslu trek

Fabulous trek with the most stunning views, interesting unspoilt Nepalese villages, friendly group of people. Informative guides, huge diversity of landscapes, floura & fauna.

Mount Toubkal Ascent, 4,167m/13,671ft          

Wonderful trek in Atlas mountains

For various, unpredictable reasons I ended up going on this trek alone. However, I still had an excellent, English speaking guide, a wonderful cook, 2 muleteers and 2 mules all looking after me! I was very well looked after and had a great time. The food was fantastic, especially considering the basic cooking arrangements. The terrain is very dry and arid but the scenery is quite striking and the night sky is wonderful. Don't expect anything other than very basic (squat toilet) or non-existent toilet facilities and you do have to be careful with water hygiene. I had no problems and I was provided with hot water and liquid soap at every meal time and filtered all my drinking water. All in all a great trek that was very well organised and enjoyable.

Fantastic Hidden Valleys of Bhutan

A fantastic way to explore Bhutan. We got a real insight into Bhutanese life by staying in the homesteads and attending the local festival.

Gentle Walking Eastern Bhutan          

Beautiful Eastern Bhutan

Nice to be back in Bhutan, this time gently discovering beautiful east. Amazing nature, slow-paced life, tradition, nice food. With the favourable weather that we had, just a perfect holiday.

Rajasthan in Style          

Rajasthan mix

We really liked the mix of culture and nature and to see the life of people in the villages.

Good balance of walking and touring in Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is truly remarkable. The architecture of the Silk Road cities is uniquely spellbinding and the opportunity to see the landscape of mountains, steppe and desert make for a memorable trip. The balance between walking in the mountains and cultural tours really makes it, giving you the chance to recharge and refresh between cities.

Annapurna memories to last a lifetime

The trekking holiday was everything I'd hoped for! Breathtaking and varied scenery along the route. Each lodge provided a beautiful setting to relax and unwind after each days walk. Every lodge provided exceptional hospitality and service. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was beautifully prepared and served with care. Our guide NG (Namgel) was humorous and knowledgeable. Our porters Surmago, Albie and Antim were friendly and supportive. Memories to last a lifetime. Thank you.

Amazing journey through northern India

We loved visiting the Golden Temple in the evening which was amazing, as was the scenery and the people we met on our journey through Northern India. Also wonderful to visit at last the beautiful and historical Shimla.

Golden Temple highlight

Amritsar and the Golden Temple was the highlight of the trip followed by the daily India/Pakistan border ceremony.
