About Us

Find out more About the mountain company (UK)

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

We are an independent travel company known as experts in leading trips to Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan and Burma (Myanmar). We believe to succeed in delivering the highest standards of service we need to be specialists by focussing on only a small number of countries. 

Since 2004 we have developed a deep understanding of the main sights & attractions, hotels & lodges, trekking routes, conditions and culture of these countries. Roland Hunter, the owner and founder, has personally completed the majority of our trips so he will give you advice based on his first-hand knowledge and experience.

Over the years we have organised a range of Camping Style treks to some of the most remote areas of the Himalaya such as Lunana Snowman (Bhutan) and also along sections of The Great Himalaya Trail including Dolpo to Jomsom GHT (Nepal), Kanchenjunga to Makalu GHT (Nepal) and Makalu to Everest GHT (Nepal).

We work closely with the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG) and follow their five guidelines for porter protection. The Mountain Company is an accredited trek operator in the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) Alliance. We have developed a Responsible Tourism policy which aims to ensure that The Mountain Company and its clients act in a way that is socially, environmentally and culturally sound.

The Mountain Company is based in the UK although we usually find that our trekking groups are international with people coming from different countries of the world. Everyone is welcome. Our trips are priced on our website in Pounds Sterling, US Dollar, Euros, Australian Dollar, New Zealand Dollar and Canadian Dollar.

The Mountain Company financially protects 100% of our bookings for clients from both UK and international through our ATOL and ABTOT bonds. We are a member of The Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) and we abide by the terms of the AITO Quality Charter

We look forward to hearing from you and helping to organise your trip to Asia. Please get in touch with us at any time if you have any questions or would like further information.
