Find out more About the mountain company (UK)

The Mountain Company is an award winning adventure travel operator. We specialise in cultural tours, treks and expeditions to the Himalaya and Karakoram. We are located in Dartmoor National Park in the county of Devon of South West England, United Kingdom.

We are experts in organising trips to Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan and Burma (Myanmar). To deliver the highest standard of service we focus on only a small number of countries.

Since 2004 we have developed a deep understanding of our destinations. We have built up in depth knowledge of the trekking routes, conditions and culture of these countries. We have spent a lot of time exploring the main sights and inspecting the hotels & lodges. Our founder, Roland Hunter, has completed most of our trips. He will give you pre trip advice based on his first-hand experience. Find out more about Our Operations.

Over the years we have organised treks to the most remote areas of the Himalayan region. Some of these trips are Lunana Snowman in Bhutan, Saribung Expedition in Nepal and Snow Lake & Hispar La in Pakistan. We have trekked along sections of The Great Himalaya Trail in Nepal. These include Dolpo to Jomsom GHT, Kanchenjunga to Makalu GHT and Makalu to Everest GHT.

Sustainable travel is a key priority for us and we have a Responsible Tourism policy. We follow the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG) five guidelines for porter protection. We are an accredited trek operator in the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) Alliance. We are active members of AITO Project Protect.

We are a member of The Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) and we abide by the terms of the AITO Quality Charter. We are fully bonded by ABTOT and offer financially protected packages.
