Difference between group and private trips

Group travel is when you join onto a trip with other people that you probably won’t know at the start of your holiday. The majority of our bookings for our groups are by people signing up by themselves and travelling solo although it is also common to get couples and small groups of friends travelling together (often people who have met and become good friends on an earlier Mountain Company trip!).

Group travel is popular and a good way to undertake a trip however we recognise that many of our travellers may not have been on a ‘group trip’ before. You can rest assured that our trips are flexible and allow you to do your thing within the framework of the itinerary and safety but to enjoy the experience with similar minded folk. It is not uncommon for groups that undertake a trip together to form a good rapport between members resulting in lifelong friendships.

Our clients come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life and from ages 18 to 75 plus. Also our groups tend to be international so it is a good opportunity to meet people from other countries, more than half or our bookings are from non UK clients. For example our Lunana Snowman trek in 2011 we had fourteen trekkers in the group from ten different countries...UK, USA, Canada, Ukraine, Australia, Portugal, India, Italy, Germany and Ireland!

Private trips can also be arranged especially for you and your family or friends to suit all your needs and requirements. However please note that some of our trips we only run with a Western and Sherpa leader and due to the higher costs the minimum group size with this leadership would be six people.

Our Luxury Treks and Cultural Tours of Nepal are popular trips for private itineraries and over the last few years we have organised a number of honeymoon trips as well. Please contact us should you be interested in The Mountain Company arranging a tailor made itinerary for you.
