Trips and treks guaranteed to run



Dhaulagiri Circuit trek was excellent, as usual it was well planned and well executed. Nothing was too much trouble for the porters or guides. Jill’s leadership only filled me with confidence.The food was brilliant and plenty of it, bed tea in the morning was more than welcome. This was my second trek with The Mountain Company and I would be more than happy to book another one in the future.
