Mountain Expeditions is a small UK company owned and run by Jon Gupta. We specialise in bespoke, professional and seamlessly-run expeditions around the world.

A successful expedition is made up of the hundreds of small wonderful experiences gained from start to finish. We therefore ensure that every aspect of your trip is expertly organised and well-managed.

We operate in 6 countries. We respect and value the local communities with whom we work and have nurtured and built strong relationships with them. As a result, we feel we have a deeper understanding of how to best deliver the trip of a lifetime to you.

 Jon is currently leading an expedition on EVEREST! Click here to see the latest!
