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.

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

Friends on a shared adventure

This was once again a very well organised Trek from Mountain Kingdoms. The scenery was all we hoped for as we ascended the Langtang Valley. Our small group gelled immediately into a group of friends on a shared adventure. Our thanks must go to our trek Leader Durga, his assistant Ram and the porters who ensured we thoroughly enjoyed our 15 days of walking.

Three High Passes to Everest          

First ever trek - exceeded expectations

The trek far exceeded my expectations. It is also the first trek that i have ever done. The scenery is just out of this world. Whilst the 3 passes themselves are hard work, with adequate preparation they are fully achievable. The rewards are incredible vistas, and being away from the traditional circuit. The acclimatization built into the route was great, and so I would fully endorse the route direction (clockwise) as well as the trek duration. Bravo to the guides and porters.

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

No praise too high!

We had a wonderful holiday. We saw a lot of the country and a considerable amount of wildlife. The hotels were all comfortable and the food was good. There was quite a lot of travel in a small bus. This was inevitable if we wanted to see as much of the country as we did. The bus was comfortable and the driver was good. Our guide was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Costa Rica. He was happy to accommodate our wishes to get up early to go bird watching. No praise too high.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Japan          

Friendly people

All the Japanese people were unfailingly friendly, helpful and polite.

Gentle Walking Patagonia in Style          

It really was the trip of a lifetime

The scenery and nature of Patagonia plus the helpfulness of all the people we met made the holiday so special for us. All the flights and travel arrangements worked as planned. The accommodation and food were first class and not forgetting the Argentinian steaks and wine! The Estancia Cristina has the top billing from us. Together with the rest of our itinerary it was really a trip of a lifetime. Thanks to Mountain Kingdoms for all the arrangements, you were a pleasure to deal with.

Gentle Walking & Wildlife Costa Rica          

Wildlife paradise with a great guide

There are regular guides, and then, there's Rey, our highly qualified naturalist guide, who always spotted in a tree, long before any of our group, 'anything that looks unusual or shouldn't be there' (his words). Monkeys, sloths, iguanas, and particularly birds, he found them all for us, and, with his 'scope and tripod set up, we could view, and photograph or video via our phones, all the wonderful creatures that make Costa Rica a wildlife paradise. We enjoyed walks in the volcanic areas too.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Japan          

Comprehensive experience of Japan

We enjoyed the variety and comprehensive experience of Japan, it's history and culture.

Druk Path Trek          

Loved Bhutan

We loved the Bhutan experience: the people, the scenery, the trekking, the culture.

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan          

The perfect blend

A wonderful holiday. It was a perfect blend of tour and trek, culture and countryside.

Everest Base Camp in Style          

Fantastic trek to Everest

Well planned, ample time for acclimitisation. The 3 guides were fantastic especially Kami who looked after us so well, knew so much and was very entertaining, he was also expert on medical matters and provided treatment. He was always supportive and reassuring and Poomba and Lakbar couldn't have been more helpful (carrying my day pack when I had flu). The lodges were comfortable with great staff. Yes the teahouses at higher altitudes were primitive but they are the only option as it is so remote.

Bhutan - a unique experience

I wouldnt call the trip a holiday - I think its best described as a unique experience - seeing a little bit of Bhutan's wonderful life and how structured their country is. Certain elements of the trip will live with us forever.

Manaslu Circuit          

Manaslu Circuit - Gorgeous, beautiful and challenging!

The Manaslu Circuit trek was, in short, just fantastic. Gorgeous! Beautiful! Challenging! The support team really made the trip. The lead guide, Santosh, provided us with unexpected opportunities to learn about the local culture. All of the guides (Santosh, Man, Nam Kha, and Suresh) were incredibly attentive and supportive. They were immediately "on it" if they noticed someone needing assistance. Not to be forgotten, the porters were always cheerful and were very much appreciated.

Wonderful introduction to the Annapurnas

A wonderful introduction to the beautiful Annapurna range and a fascinating insight into the village life of the Gurung people. The lodges are superbly situated and the solar-powered hot showers and cuddly hot water bottles ensure a good night's sleep. For those new to trekking in Nepal though, the stone steps up and down the hillsides are not to be under-estimated!

Zanskar Dream Trek          

An unique experience

We joined the Zanskar Dream Trek fully expected it is going to be a challenging trip. But we have been wanting to hike in the Ladakh and Zanskar area for a long time. By the description of it we know it kind of a track like Bhutan Snowman Trek which we did some 12 teams ago 9whuch was challenging but hugely rewarding. We decided as we are not getting any younger we should give it a try. The actual experience went over and beyond our expectations. The mountain scenery combined with the remoteness and the cultural component the people and Monasteries make it one of a kind. Hiking trip that definitely sitting on top of all the hiking trip we did over the years which are a lot. Thetrip was very well organized by Mountain Kingdom with both western and local guides. The crew was one of the best we had ever experienced. We were very well looked after ate and sleep well which made a very hard trip manageable. It is no doubt a very demanding trip but the effort and reward ratio is very high. I would say to people considering doing it, if you believe you can do it with effort just do it. You will never regret the decision!

The pick of our treks in Nepal

This was the pick of all our many treks to Nepal. Scenery was spectacular, trekking was tough but satisfying and the support from the guides etc was brilliant. We couldn't recommend it enough!

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan          

Exceeded our expectations

We had an extra two nights in Paro before the group arrived and right from our initial arrival when we were met by Kinley, the guide and Gen, the driver we felt we were in very capable hands and Kinley arranged our extra days perfectly to match our interests, he also adapted plans as necessary for the whole group to take account of capabilities and interests. The whole trip exceeded our expectations, the country itself is fascinating, beautiful and tourists are very welcomed and looked after.

Three High Passes to Everest          

A fabulous trek in the Khumbu

This is a fabulous trip! The route is well planned which showcases much of the Khumbu region and takes you off the beaten track. Its tough and you need to be prepared to be cold and to rough it, as far as accommodation is concerned, but its worth it. The scenery is amazing! All of the passes are superb. Purna (our head guide) and his team were brilliant - they worked so hard to ensure that we were all ok and had all we need. It was a highlight of the trip meeting them and getting to know them.
