                        Successful trek and climb

                        We chose Mountain Monarch primarily because they were a local company and plenty of time was allocated to allow for acclimatization. Unlike some other companies, MM allowed plenty of time to acclimatize which therefore maximized our chances of a successful trek and climb. The trek and climb were well organized and the equipment provided (4-season sleeping bag, 2 man tent, ice axe) was more than adequate.

                        Whilst trekking we stayed in tea houses, which were mostly of a high standard and were clean and comfortable. Food was good and there was plenty of it. We followed our guide's advice avoided certain foods and as a result, experienced no stomach complaints. During the climb of Chulu West, we moved away from the main trekking route and we stayed in tents. We had an excellent cook and assistant who produced a variety of tasty meals. Our climbing Sherpa Sange was a great character with many years of experience.

                        He ensured that our climb went without incident and it was a real pleasure to spend time with him. Dawa, our guide, looked after our daily needs and ensured that our trekking was hassle-free. Our MM crews were a great bunch who looked after us well. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nepal and would not hesitate to recommend Mountain Monarch to others.

                        Excellent cooks and comfortable base and high camps

                        In September 2014 a group of seven Aussies went trekking and climbing with Mountain Monarch. The experience we all had was amazing. The trip was well organized and all of us enjoyed the friendship and company of the Mountain Monarch team. They were always helpful and willing to adapt to any changes and had good knowledge and experience of the Annapurna circuit. Two of us split from the original group and climbed Mt Chulu West. Climbing and camping gear was provided.

                        We had excellent cooks and a comfortable base and high camps. The skill of our climbing guides Prakash and Santa gave us a lot of confidence to tackle this peak. This climb was one of the most rewarding challenges that both of us have experienced. Thank you, Pradip and your Mountain Monarch team for an amazing trek and climb.
