Luxury Kathmandu Valley Trek

We had a custom planned tour planned for us and it was perfect. Dwarikas in Dhulikel was probably the nicest hotel we've stayed in ever. We LOVED it. So peaceful and beautiful. Every detail of the grounds, rooms, food and service was perfect there. Walking through farm lands and over suspension bridges to arrive at Balthali Resort for lunch comes in second as our favorite memory of the trip behind our stay at Dwarika's.

We had a custom planned tour planned for us and it was perfect. Dwarikas in Dhulikel was probably the nicest hotel we've stayed in ever. We LOVED it. So peaceful and beautiful. Every detail of the grounds, rooms, food and service was perfect there. Walking through farm lands and over suspension bridges to arrive at Balthali Resort for lunch comes in second as our favorite memory of the trip behind our stay at Dwarika's. The views and colorful interior of Namo Buddha monastery come right after that as a top memory.

Roland was extremely responsive to all of our questions and requests and tailor made an itinerary for us based on the limited time we had available. He was great to work with. Prem, our guide, was great - super friendly, knowledgeable and doing everything he could to make our stay awesome.

Nepal Himalayan Mountaineering Trip - Around Dhaulagiri

This Himalayan mountaineering trip involved a circuit around Dhaulagiri that included passes over 5000m. After a few days we reached Italian Base Camp at around 3800m and unfortunately were hit by a huge snow storm due to Cyclone HubHub. We therefore saw the response and decision-making of TMC in the worst possible conditions. It was fantastic - very professional and decisions were made based on experience and knowledge designed to keep the ...

We therefore saw the response and decision-making of TMC in the worst possible conditions. It was fantastic - very professional and decisions were made based on experience and knowledge designed to keep the clients and crew safe in unusual circumstances. Before the trip the administration and booking and pre-trip briefings were also very professional and thorough. The owner, Roland Hunter is always available to answer any queries or respond to suggestions. As a mountaineer himself with a vast array of experience he instils confidence in his clients and it is very gratifying to know he is so "hands on". A brilliant tour operator."

The Mountain Company review

The Mountain Company provided a service that was personal, but backed by organisational depth and a wealth of experience. In somewhat difficult circumstances, arrangements were made that protected the safety of the group and adjusted to our changing circumstances. I would recommend The Mountain Company to other trekkers.

The Mountain Company responded to this review on 28 Feb 2015:

Thanks for the feedback, and yes it is certainly bad luck that Cyclone Hudhud hit Himalaya preventing your group being able to cross the passes. However as you say the important thing is everyone is safe and correct decisions were made all round.

Trek in Everest region and trek in Annapurna region

We booked an Everest luxury lodge trek followed by an Annapurna luxury trek with The Mountain Trekking Company. We managed to get to Ama Dablam basecamp on the Everest trek, having passed through Namche Bazaar, and then went on to Thame before trekking back to Lukla. We also had wonderful views of the Annapurna range on the less demanding Annapurna trek. We also had time to explore Kathmandu and Pokhara. This was a sensational holiday. Both ...

We booked an Everest luxury lodge trek followed by an Annapurna luxury trek with The Mountain Trekking Company.

We also had wonderful views of the Annapurna range on the less demanding Annapurna trek. We also had time to explore Kathmandu and Pokhara. This was a sensational holiday. Both guides and their assistants were brilliant and the accommodation was superb. Then guides made sure we went at a pace we could cope with at all times, with plenty of time to enjoy the scenery.

Rating for tour operator:

We booked both an Everest luxury lodge trek and an Annapurna luxury trek with The Mountain Trekking Company. Roland and his team could not have been more helpful in making sure we had the adventure of a lifetime. Both guides and their assistants were brilliant and the accommodation was superb. We managed to get to Ama Dablam basecamp on the Everest trek and then had wonderful views of the Annapurna range on the less demanding Annapurna trek. We would thoroughly recommend the company and are grateful for the individual attention we received.

"Was so impressed with The Mountain Company on my recent Himalayan trek. Very responsive to feedback, quick turnaround with any online queries and quality staff made for a fantastic trip. I would not hesitate to recommend them and will certainly look at future offerings from TMC when I next consider a trek in the mountains!"

Well organised from start to finish and excellent home and local leaders

This is a 2-weeks trekking holiday up to the Ama Dablam Base Camp at 4600 metres altitude in the Himalaya, close to Everest in Nepal. We met up in Kathmandu, then flied up to busy Lukla in flying taxis (small ~20 seater planes) to start our trek. The sight(s) of Everest and Ama Dablam were amazing/mesmerising and did not forget about those nice looking yaks and amazingly fit shepherds and porters. Making to the Base Camp without adverse effect ...

Making to the Base Camp without adverse effect was truly a relief as well as a big achivement for me....wonderful feeling!

Rating for tour operator:

The trek was well planned and organised in such a way that there were sufficient time to acclimatise with rising altitudes. The local guides were very knowledgeable with good communication and patience with us. The lodges were surprisingly quite well equipped and foods were resonable considering their location up in the mountain.

An Everest Pilgrimage

A lifetime's ambition achieved reaching Everest Base Camp on December 2014 to celebrate my 60th year.It was fair to say I was not the fittest and I struggled with the altitude, however with the help of the very caring guides and porters we finally reached our goal. I will take away wonderful memories of beautiful vistas and fantastic weather. Many thanks to all at the Mountain Company for organising such a well planned programme aiding acclimatis...

The Mountain Company from website to delivery of the Trek itself were impressive in all aspects of their organisation. They were always available on the phone prior to the trip to answer any queries I had. All their staff on the trek were brilliant and very professional. If ever I go to the Himalayas again these are the only people I would go with. Job well done
