Our love affair with Asia began in 1969, when we became the first company to organize a trek to Nepal. Our curiosity then led us to Bhutan in 1974, six years before the country formally opened its doors to tourists. Before long, there were more firsts: Vietnam and Borneo...and most recently North Korea. But we don’t take our role as the original adventure travel pioneers lightly. We have solidified our reputation with the help of local offices, long-standing relationships with our vendors, and our loyal expert guides—many of which have been with us from 10 to 20 years! This insider access, coupled with our belief in small groups ensures an intimate experience with the country and region you are visiting.
When it comes to Everest and the Himalaya, we take great care in preparing you for the journey of a lifetime. We'll advise you how to train, review any medical conditions, supply equipment checklists, and help you sort out gear once you arrive. Our guides have led MTS groups through the Khumbu for decades, so you're sure to reach those 18,000-foot peaks.
