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 some hours before descending the following day.
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 not hesitate to use MM again in any future trip to Nepal; perhaps, with the help of Diamox, I will one day complete the ascent of Island peak.

Mountain Monarch is every bit as good as their excellent website. I chose them for a spring Island Peak trip because of their professionalism, value for money, and, not least, because they were a local Kathmandu-based company. I have been particularly impressed by the friendliness, knowledgeableness, and attention to detail that characterizes this company, from the Managing Director down to the porters. This all contributed to a trip of a lifetime. Anyone thinking of visiting the incredible Himalayas should look no further!

Extremely Well Organized
The Island Peak climbing trip was exceptionally well organized, and the Mountain Monarch team, including guides, porters, and cooks, were all extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, and helpful. This was indeed a trip where the delivery was more significant than the promises, and I felt safe at all times with the experienced team around me. Upon returning from the top of Island Peak, the group appeared happier for me than I even was. Excellent trip, and looking forward to my next one.

Very Best Service
Thank you for such a great trek. Mountain Monarchs took care of every detail and provided excellent guides (Pasang knew the elevations of nearly every peak). Of all the trekking groups we saw on the mountain, Mountain Monarchs seemed to give us the best service -- and the best price. It was all even better than we expected. We hope to send you our friends soon!

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 guidance to allow our team to reach the summit of the 6189-meter peak. The quality of service offered by the Mountain Monarch staff was extremely high and of a professional standard.
In particular, they showed immense care and motivation toward 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 who may wish to climb Imja Tse or similar mountains.

Fantastic Island Peak Adventure
I would like to thank all at Mountain Monarch for my fantastic Island Peak adventure. 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 before departure that a medical box and a Gamow bag would accompany the group on the entire trek, I was still hugely surprised when I saw just how comprehensive the medical provisions were. I am impressed.
I would particularly like to highlight that the trek leaders of Mountain Monarch knew their stuff, from the conditions on the trek to the wealth of information and insight into lifestyle and culture, the appropriate medicine to be administered for any health condition, and so much much more.
Knowing I was in good hands greatly enhanced my enjoyment of the adventure. Mountain Monarch also proved reliable and responsible; in fact, the staffs were always ready to go the extra mile to make my trip unforgettable. Mountain Monarch has won me over in every way. I will be taking all future treks in the region with Mountain Monarch.

Mera peak 2015 – 100% success – Great company. I thank Mountain Monarch for organizing an unforgettable trip to Mera Peak in April 2015. This was our third trip to Nepal, and each time with Mountain Monarch. Pradip was excellent at communicating and answering our questions before leaving the UK. They supplied us with the necessary kit needed for our trip that was top quality. The guides/porters/cook & kitchen staffs were excellent throughout the journey, and we couldn’t fault them. We were in a small group of just 5 and had a 100% success rate of reaching the top of Mera Peak. On our way down to Lukla, we experienced the earthquake and were fortunate to be in a safe place. Mountain Monarch was very helpful in communicating with our families, who were obviously concerned with the disaster.
Thanks to the whole Mountain Monarch team

Just thought I would give you some feedback on my recent trip to Island Peak with Mountain Monarch, an experience I very much enjoyed and am pleased to inform you had a successful outcome.
I found the services that Mountain Monarch provided to be of a very high standard, and the staff courteous and helpful. I particularly would like to thank Sunil and Morti for their encouragement and light-hearted humor when the going got tough; it was very much appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone contemplating a journey to Nepal, be it trekking, climbing, or some other activity.

Enjoyed the trek
The 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 the Island peak. Everything went smoothly, and I enjoyed every minute. Thanks for the great trip.
