Why Travel with Mountain Monarch

Nepal Adventure Travel - Why Mountain Monarch

Among 2000 registered trekking companies in Nepal that pledge to offer similar services for Nepal Adventure Travel, Mountain Monarch stands out differently regarding reliability. It's comprehensible that it is not easy to choose the best out of thousands of trekking companies that flourish in Nepal. Mountain Monarch stands out of the crowd, thus ranking in the top five in 2018 among 2000 international and locally established agencies in organizing the most trekking peak climbing trips in Nepal. Our responsible adventure travel policy of 1 trekker porter supersede all other local and overseas base adventure travel companies. In addition, we are the only adventure travel company in Nepal that provides all the personal and group climbing gear, including climbing boots.

While organizing Adventure Travel in Nepal, we always go the extra mile with our services and assure you of genuine safety and comfort. Significantly, we are legal operators, as it is mandatory to have a registered trekking company in Nepal, as per the rule of the Nepal government, to run any adventure trekking and climbing trip in the Nepal Himalayas. Here are some points we would like to share about why you chose Mountain Monarch as your travel partner in your Nepal adventure travel holiday trip to the Himalayas.

Safety First & Success Stories

Our medical and safety practices are second to none in leading all the adventure travel in Nepal. All our trekking group leaders and guides have undertaken the Wilderness First Aid Medical Course, and years of experience have taught them to deal with adverse situations from diarrhea to Acute Mountain Sickness. We carry a Portable Altitude Chamber / Gamow gab (hyperbolic bag) or Oxygen and a comprehensive medical kit. We plan adventure trips where safety is not compromised. We are proud to share our success stories of rarely achievable 100 % summit rate on the Mt. Everest expedition. More than 85% of trekkers had scaled the Island and Mera Peak, and every trekker completed the trip safely with outstanding achievement. Nepal Mountaineering Association has awarded Mountain Monarch with the TOP 9th and TOP 5th company for organizing 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 only adventure travel companies implementing the ONE TREKKER: ONE PORTER strategy on our high pass trek to peak climbing journeys in the Himalayas from 2015. The personal porter is like having your own Sherpa hiking next to you. He carries a much lighter weight, around 15 Kilos on a high pass trek to climbing adventure, than any other porters you encounter en route. Thus, the ethical way of dealing with porters enables them to work longer and spend extended, healthy lives supporting themselves and their families. Trekkers will benefit, too, as they will directly interact with the porters, who will be happy to share first-hand information about their culture and lifestyle. Some will probably become valued friends and have the best memories of being in the Himalayas.

Similarly, TRIP ADVISOR has rated Mountain Monarch with the Certificate of EXCELLENCE – a Testament to High Standards – since 2008 because of the optimum clients' satisfaction in organizing unique and memorable adventure tours over the decade.

Top Quality Facilities @ Competitive Price

This means we can offer top-quality service and facilities with flexibility at a competitive price to exceed your expectations—no hidden or extra cost. In every detail, we set the highest possible standards, from safety to high-quality gear and food selection, to meet and surpass the international standard.

Trekking and Climbing Gears – We Provide 

In our commitment to making the trip hassle-free and best-valued, we provide most of the warm trekking gear to each trekker as required. From a sleeping bag with liner, down jacket, rain poncho, and snow gaiters for use, a complimentary Trek Duffle bag, and T-shirts. Besides the trekking gear, we do provide all the personal and group climbing gear, including the branded LESPOTIVA climbing boot, EXPERT down-filled mattress for comfort and warmth, Black diamond's crampon, Ice axe, harness, ascender, the figure of eight, Carabiner, etc. along with fixed and dynamic rope required to climb the peak.

Personal Service Provided by Experts 

As Nepal adventure travel operators, we know that each of our guests is looking for a safe and unique adventure holiday. All of our crew has already worked with large international adventure companies and brings the best of that experience to a more flexible local company. We thus provide a more personal and expert service than the large adventure travel companies can offer in organizing small adventure groups.

Hassle-Free Travel

We take care of your holiday from the airport to the airport (arrival to departure). All your accommodation and transportation are taken care of. Private transport is used on all longer road journeys to guarantee the freedom of exploration and increase comfort. Entrance fees are included for all the cultural heritage sites and national and conservation parks. We ensure a trekking and peak climbing permit and domestic flight ticket are ready on time. While on the trip, we offer you the unrestricted use of quality trekking and climbing gear.

Staff Welfare

We are committed to the welfare of our staff, from Trek Leaders / Guides to Sherpa, Cooks, and Porters. We ensure good wages, salary, Provident fund, proper insurance for the equipment, and warm clothing needed for porters. They are our kith and kin and the backbone of the adventure industry in Nepal.   Mountain Monarch has fulfilled all the standards set by IPPG (International Porter Protection Group) for the welfare and safety of all porters and is committed to improving their livelihoods. No wonder the staff, including porters, want to work for us repeatedly. We have set some noticeable guidelines, which we are applying in our trips as a Porter Protection Policy.

Social Responsibility & Porter Children Education

Leading trekkers and climbers in the mountains are not the only thing we do; we are also aware of social responsibility. So, having you on our trip is an honor and privilege. Your choice has enabled us to contribute to our mission to provide better education to the many more deprived porters' children through the "Porter Children Education Fund" promoted by Mountain Monarch. We also assist in building up the schools and drinking water supply systems in remote areas.

Environmental Aspects 

We are aware of protecting fragile environments while organizing trekking and climbing trips. We motivate all of our guests to 'take only photos to leave only footprints.' We cook meals using kerosene or Gas on a camping trip and stay at a teahouse where alternative energy like Gas is being used for cooking. We properly dispose of all the biodegradable rubbish and bring all non-biodegradable things, like tin, batteries, plastic, etc., back to Kathmandu for proper disposal. We provide appropriately boiled drinking water on our trip to discourage the use of plastic mineral water, so no litter is left on mountains. We have set up solar energy at the Island's peak base camp.

Mountain Monarch is a reputed Adventure Travel operator in Nepal, registered and licensed obtained from the respective government authorities and is an active Member of the Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal (TAAN), NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association), NTB (Nepal Tourism Board), KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Educational Project), NCA (Nepal Canyoning Association).

Small Groups Adventure with Fixed Departure Dates

We believe in organizing small groups to deliver the best quality services. Hence, when you join a Mountain Monarch trekking or climbing trip, you travel with a maximum of 10 fellow travelers. This is small enough to avoid negatively impacting the places we explore but large enough to have a good time with other travelers worldwide. You can join the suitable trip date by choosing from 100 adventure holiday trips.
