Nepal Mountaineering Association has awarded Mountain Monarch with TOP 9th and TOP 5th company for organizing the trekking peak climbing in  2014 and 2015 respectively out of more than 1400 registered trekking companies in Nepal. 

Responsible trekking policy: – 01 Trekker: 01 Porter Mountain Monarch is proud to announce that we are one of the few trekking companies implementing a ONE TREKKER: ONE PORTER strategy on our entire trekking and climbing trip above 4000 meter in Himalayas from 2015. The personal porter is more like having your own personal Sherpa hiking next to you. He carries a much a lighter weight around15 Kilo only than any other porters you encounter on route. Thus the ethical way of dealing with porter enable them to work longer and spend extended and healthy lives so they can continue to support themselves and their families. Trekkers will benefit too as they will have direct interaction with the porters who will be happy to share first-hand information about their culture and lifestyle and some will probably become valued friends and best memories being in Himalayas.
