Nov 2016 – Excellent experience – doing the combined Everest Base camp and Island Peak trek.
The Island Peak part is especially strenuous however the acclimitisation treks leading up to IP are well designed to help prepare you for the hard slog to the top. The support Sherpas and porters are all first class with lots of experience. Enjoyed meeting up will all my fellow companions from all over the world.
I just want to say thanks to all the folks who made my trip one of the best I have ever had in my life.
I did the Everest Base Camp and climbed Island Peak with Monarch and can only say they made the trip fantastic. I was met at the airport and all the details were taken care off.
The guides were great! ans above all else they were safe. I will be booking anothe rtrip with them next October.
Thanks to the folks at Monarch!
It is not easy finding a reliable agency to go trekking with in Nepal, since there are so many to choose from. I chose Mountain Monarch because it is a Nepali owned company that not only provides an excellent service, but also looks after its staff and their families! In spring 2007 I joined Mountain Monarch on a 23 day trek in the Khumbu including the climb of Island Peak.
It was a wonderful experience and a trek I can highly recommend. I would chose Mountain Monarch again, because I enjoyed trekking in a small group and because I found their guides and porters to be friendly and professional. In that way not only was able to experience to beautiful landscape, but I also made new friends.

I would like to thank all at Mountain Monarch for the fantastic Island Peak adventure I had. The trek was such great fun and this was in no small part attributable to the friendly, attentive and supremely knowledgeable Mountain Monarch staff.
While I had been informed prior to departure that a medical box and a gammow bag will accompany the group on the entire trek, I was still hugely surprised when i actually saw for myself just how comprehensive the medical provisions were. I am impressed.
I would particularly like to highlight that the trek leaders of Mountain Monarch really knew their stuff, from the conditions on the trek, to the wealth of information and insight into lifestyle and culture, and the appropriate medicine to be administered for any health condition, and so much much more.
Knowing that I was in good hands greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the adventure. Mountain Monarch also proved to be reliable and responsible, and in fact, the staffs were ever ready to go the extra mile to make my trip so unforgettable. Mountain Monarch has won me over in every way. I will be taking all future treks in the region with Mountain Monarch.
In terms of the trek, everything went really well…..Karma is an excellent guide, one of the best I have had on all of my trekking trips so we were very happy with everything and for that thank you. I will certainly recommend you to friends and will be back to Nepal again with your team in the next 2 years
Trek leader and staff were very accommodating + caring especially when I was ill. One highlight was the ice cave at Everest base camp and also the views from the top of Island peak. Every thing went smoothly and I enjoyed every minutes.
Thanks for great trip.
I can not properly express how completely satisfied I was with not only choosing MM. From the first days of constant emailing my questions and your patient responses but also from Day 1 at the airport seeing our guide Prakash ever smiling face to the sad day he took us back. It was the most wonderful experience and I honestly put that down to the team of Sherpas, guides, helpers – everyone at MM who made it a success and a special trip for me.
I travelled last year with another much larger, non Nepalese based company and I really felt the difference this time around both in professionalism and in really getting to know Prakash and his team – and that was one of the major parts of my trip I will treasure for my life. These guys are local people who not only know the area so well but were just happy to share 3 weeks of their lives with us.
I, Mark Squirrell, along with three other friends, employed the services of Mountain Monarch to guide and support our efforts to climb Imja Tse (Island Peak) in the Solo Khumbu District of Nepal. Mountain Monarch provided pre mission advice, catering, accommodation, training and guiding in order to allow our team to reach the summit of the 6189-meter peak. The quality of service provided by the Mountain Monarch staff was extremely high and of a professional standard.
In particular they showed immense care and motivation towards our endeavor to reach the top. Without their help and guidance it is clear that we would not have all made it to the top. I recommend Mountain Monarch to any individual or group that may wish to climb Imja Tse or similar such mountains.
I initially chose Mountain Monarch because they seemed to be more professional than the other agencies. Now that from my Island Peak trek, I can only say that everything was perfectly organized. I had an excellent time, no only thanks to the professionalism of Pradip, his guides and porters, but also thanks to their great friendliness. Next time I go to Nepal, I will know where to go!
I wanted to express my thanks to all at Mountain Monarch for the excellent service you gave to Nadine and me on our recent Island Peak trek. As you know I experienced a severe case of High Altitude Cerebral Edema at Gorak Shep and had to be put in the Portable Altitude Oxygen Chamber for number of hours, before descending the next morning.
The quick actions of the trek leader and other MM staff, perhaps Saved my life. They are all a credit to your company. I would have no hesitation in using MM again in any future trip to Nepal, perhaps with the help of Diomox I will one day complete ascent of Island peak.
Mountain Monarch renowned for the quality service and achieving the best possible success rate in scaling the summit has designed this Island peak climbing portion trip to those trekkers who wish to do the guided climb to the summit of Island peak joining the group at base camp.Browse
