Mountain Consult is managed by Dutch organizers and very talented Nepalese high altitude guides in the Himalayas. Each of us has extensive experience in organizing outdoor events, wilderness treks and mountaineering expeditions in and outside the Himalayas. We all have extensive experience in leading adventure travel prgrammes, treks and mountaineering expeditions for European and Asian travel companies. We understand what trekking and mountaineering is about and we understand the needs of trekkers and climbers. This combination of Dutch & Nepalese qualities & competences makes Mountain Consult a very reliable and professional partner to work with in the Himalayas.
We are proud to say that Mountain Consult is one of the few companies where experienced trekkers, climbers and organizers work in our office. Everybody within Mountain Consult has trekking & climbing experience. This means that you're not dealing with smart sales persons, but with people who know what you're planning to do and who know what it takes do make it a success. We employ strong and experienced crews of sirdar's, Sherpa's, cooks and kitchen boys who know what they are doing. Everybody who works for us is stimulated to continiously improve him or herself by training and study. Count on reliable, loyal and involved professionals who will make your programm a success!
That's our specialty! Anybody who loves being in the outdoors, knows that food is very important. It's important as we need energy, but it should be nutritionous and tasty, too. With many years of outdoor cooking experience, we promise you that our cooks will blow you away with their special breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Have we already told you of our famous cakes and pies? Trust us, the food will be great!
Although it's sad enough to say that this is actually a reason to work with us, there are still many examples of companies who think and act differently. We see Mountain Consult as a warm family and we treat eachother that way. Everybody who works with us is important, from experienced climbing guides, to porters and from directors to drivers. All have their own tasks and responsibilities, but everybody receives a reasonable salary and outstanding
We believe that our services should meet the highest standards within the local possibilities. That's why we focus on reliabilty, safety, honesty and client satisfaction. We also believe that it's possible to provide high quality services at realistic and resonable prices that are good for everybody: for our clients, for our porters, our cooks, our guides, our office personell and basically, everybody who's involved with us. This means that we are probably not the cheapest budget outfitter in the Himalayas and we are not the most expensive one either. Value for money, that's what you get!
One of our highest standards is safety. This means that we only work with equipment that is in a very good condition and that is tested before storage. Most of our equipment is western brand equipment, such as North Face, Millet, Mountain Hardware, Mammut, Petzl, Black Diamond and Camp. We also use Ozark tents and Korean fixed ropes that is common and widely used within the Himalayas. Besides camping and climbing gear, you can also expect reliable and 'comfortable' transportation where possible. However, depending on the program we may also use local transportation which can be less comfortable.
IPPG aims to improve safety and health for porters working in the mountains for the trekking industry worldwide.

Yes, communication is very important! It's one of the main sources for misunderstanding or dissapointment. That's why we believe in open, honest and clear communication with anyone we work with. It's perhaps our Dutch background that also brings in our 'no nonsens' approach and attitude. It's like it is, no fairytales and no words to make things better than it really is. And... agreement is agreement.
