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.

Definitive Cultural Tour of Bhutan          

Tour of remarkable 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".

Hidden Valleys of Bhutan          

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.

Brahmaputra River Cruise & Bhutan          

Brahmaputra cruise and Bhutan tour - well worth experiencing.

A wonderful holiday full of happy memories of lovely people and cuisines. Cultural tour in Bhutan provided a good insight into the life of the lovely and very kind people. On the cruise, I experienced magical moments, local customs, costumes, cuisines and yoga and ever smiling crew The shore excursions and safari provided good insight into everyday life. All very relaxing and well worth experiencing.

Brahmaputra River Cruise & Bhutan          

Highly recommended holiday

An excellent holiday. Well organised from beginning to end by Mountain Kingdoms. Nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend.

Nepal & Bhutan Explorer          

Nepal & Bhutan - loved it all!

I have to say that I loved every minute of this tour. Nepal and Bhutan were so different to anywhere I have ever been. The Stupas and Monasteries and Dzongs were fascinating. I loved the Monkey Temple in Nepal and we also did a walk to the biggest cave in Nepal. Loved that. The Tigers Nest hike was the highlight for me. Seeing Everest and the Himalayas from the plane was also brilliant! The Guides in both Nepal and Bhutan were excellent as was the accommodation. Loved it all!

Lingshi Laya Trek Bhutan          

Excellent mix of trekking and culture in Bhutan

An excellent trip - only 2 clients so the guide was able to take us round a number of places in Thimphu and Paro which wouldnt have been possible with a big group. We were fortunate to see some of the mountain festivals at both Jhomolhari and Laya while we were on the trek. A great mixture of altitude trekking and also an opportunity to learn much more about the country and the people.

Ganesh Himal Trek          

Off-the-beaten-track trek in Nepal

Overall, this was an enjoyable off-the-beaten track trek through countryside untouched by tourism with some pleasant rural and forest scenery. We didn't encounter any other trekkers. Unfortunately, apart from a couple of brief early morning glimpses of distant mountains and fragments between breaks in the clouds, we were denied the spectacular high mountain scenery we had been hoping for.

Gentle Trekking Nakasendo Trail          

Immersive Japan

Things we loved: getting immersed in Japanese Culture; Japanese people are so polite and friendly; trying Japanese food; and travelling in a group of six with good camaraderie.

Gentle Trekking Nakasendo Trail          

Unstressful walking in Japan

Having spent the previous two weeks mountain trekking in the Japan Alps without a guide we were looking to this "gentle trekking" trip with a guide to introduce us - with explanations - to some of the key cultural aspects and sites of Japan through the medium of unstressful walking. I think the trip met our aims for it.

A really enjoyable experience on safari

A great holiday for spotting wildlife both animals and birds. The regions visited allowed the contrast between green mountainous areas, scrubland and the bush. All the guides very knowledgeable about the wildlife and South Africa in general. The two weeks just flew by a really enjoyable experience.

Gentle Walking Bhutan          

A new high in Bhutan

We have enjoyed numerous holidays among mountains around the world (several of them with MK) but for its combination of easy walking amidst stunning scenery and insights into a fascinating culture, our two weeks in Bhutan marked a new high. Our local guide was simply fantastic, a wonderful companion and mine of information whether leading us down forest trails graced by unfamiliar flowers and birds, or explaining the significance of paintings and statues at stunning temples and fortresses.

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

Awesome Langtang

The Langtang Valley was a truly awesome place - the mountains, the friendly people in the tea houses, the way the area has recovered from the tragedy of the earthquake in 2015. The accommodation was better than we expected and we really appreciated the higher standards. The icing on the cake of the whole trip was having Durga as our lead Sherpa, who'd also led our Annapurna Sanctuary trip 10 years ago.

Langtang & the Laurebina La          

Beautiful Langtang

Langtang is a beautiful valley - the walk to Kyanjin Gompa is certainly worth the effort. I would call the climb up Tsergo Ri a tough climb (not a tough little climb) but the views from the summit are superb. The trek up to Gosainkund lake and the Laurebina La is very different and makes the whole trek balanced.
