    Wonderful time with Mountain Monarch

    I cannot thank you enough for your kind generosity. We had a great time on our trek. However, I do not think you could improve the trek in any way.

    The staff did everything they could to make our trip enjoyable and safe. It was truly a trip of a lifetime, and the mountain monarch did an outstanding job. I will defiantly recommend this trip and this company to everyone I know going to Nepal. We had a wonderful time.

    Experience with Mountain Monarch in Nepal

    In April 2014, my friends and I from Greece had an experience with Mountain Monarch in Nepal. We did high passes and peak trips in the Everest region with them. They are very professional and quick in answering all our strange questions. They are flexible and have excellent staff. Send them an e-mail, and you will soon understand what I mean by the word excellent. Do not bother searching for something better - there is no
