Ladakh Sky Trail GHT in India by Mac , 14 Dec 2018
Holiday Rating:

The wonderful scenery of Ladach.

This was an adventurous 23 trek through 3 different areas in the ladach region. Three days in Leh before that to acclimatise, A drive to lamayara then over the first pass. A trip organised and run by Almas who everyone new of from previous treks. Little rain in this mountain desert just wonderful rock features and a little dust. The second phase of the canyons on the old spice route added some real excitement followed by the high grazing country ...

This was an adventurous 23 trek through 3 different areas in the ladach region. Three days in Leh before that to acclimatise, A drive to lamayara then over the first pass. A trip organised and run by Almas who everyone new of from previous treks. Little rain in this mountain desert just wonderful rock features and a little dust. The second phase of the canyons on the old spice route added some real excitement followed by the high grazing country (over 5000 mtrs) of rolling country. Goats by the thousands and yaks. A pleasant finish by the lake and a wee drive back to Leh the next day.

Rating for tour operator:

The Mountain Company has a good reputation on these harder treks and seem to be able to deliver what they promise. Their guide Almas on this trip would have to be one of the best.

Ama Dablam Base Camp in Nepal by Jamie S, 13 Dec 2018
Holiday Rating:

A "breath taking" trek through the Himalayas to the Ama Dablam Base Camp.

A trip to put on your bucket list. The difficulties associated with altitude on this trip, disappeared into insignificance. The experience was one of joy and elation at having the opportunity to trek through these sacred lands. We were humbled not only by the landscape but by the wonderful people who live and work in this special place. True and honourable custodians of this land.

Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley by SnoMo, 5 Dec 2018

Manaslu Circuit with Tsum Valley in Nepal

This is a 24 day trip with 19 trekking days. It was an amazing experience with magnificent view of Manaslu and other mountain ranges. Also learned about local culture from trekking through local villages. There were some long days but well worth the effort. The crew was always there to let a hand. I am very slow going down but never was left on my own or rushed as a crew member was always there with me.

Kanchenjunga Circuit in Nepal by Rogera65, 29 Nov 2018

Kanchenjunga Circuit - An amazing experience in a remote trekking region

A long three week trek in a remote part of Nepal visiting Kanchenjunga North and South base camps. A very well organised camping trek with the group supported by a hard working team of guides, cooking staff and porters. A mix of climates from temperate forests to cold high altitude tundra surrounding Himalayan mountains. Spectacular scenery. A special place.

Nepal Himalayan trek in Upper Dolpo region

This was a wonderful 30 day trek in a remote area of Nepal, along a section of the great himalayan trail. We were a group of ten, seven of whom are friends from New Zealand who have previously trekked together in Nepal, while the other three were from the UK. There were 25 days of walking, averaging 8 hours per day, mostly at altitudes over 4,000 metres and crossing six passes over 5,000 metres. This is a remote and quite arid region, with ...

This was a wonderful 30 day trek in a remote area of Nepal, along a section of the great himalayan trail. We were a group of ten, seven of whom are friends from New Zealand who have previously trekked together in Nepal, while the other three were from the UK. There were 25 days of walking, averaging 8 hours per day, mostly at altitudes over 4,000 metres and crossing six passes over 5,000 metres. This is a remote and quite arid region, with endless spectacular vistas, and rich with Tibetan culture. It was superbly organised by The Mountain Company, in partnership with their Kathamandu agent: www.themountaincompany.co.uk

Rating for tour operator:

The Mountain Company is based in the UK with a partner in Kathamandu. They are experienced mountain trekking operators, and we have previously trekked with them up to the base of Mt Kachenjunga in the east Nepalese Himalaya.

Langtang & Laurebina La in Nepal by GrahamDuthie, 27 Nov 2018
Holiday Rating:

Langtang, Laurebina-la and Gosainkund trek

trek to the Langtang valley then to the Gosainkund lakes followed by crossing Laurebina La pass and finally descending through Helabu to the north rim of Kathmandu valley. This area was the epicentre of the terrible 2015 earthquake. Much of the region has been rebuilt but the natural beauty remains intact. The area is getting back on it's feet and starting to attract visitors from Kathmandu city as well as abroad. Fabulous trek.
