Sunset over Ama Dablam 6856m, Nepal


It is always an absolute pleasure to receive positive feedback and it reminds us that all the hard work is worth it! The following are a few of our favourite testimonials over the past few years:

“Jon has extensive experience of expeditions globally with a great summit success rate. Having seen Jon in the mountains the over riding impression I get is that of fun, which is the single most important thing that life can bring us. This doesn’t detract from Jon’s drive and determination to climb and explore, but merely adds to it. I spent a season on Everest with Jon, we summited the same day in 2013….I struggle to think of a person who I would want to spend more time with in the mountains”

Kenton Cool – IFMGA Mountain Guide & 11 Everest Summits

“Great trek, so pleased we went with Jon after our chance meeting in Nepal. Leading expeditions is not his job, it’s his life, he does it brilliantly & seemingly effortlessly….So if you’re thinking of climbing a mountain then do it, definitely do it. If you can, do it with Mountain Expeditions”

Rob Thomas – Kilimanjaro 2013, Scottish Winter 2014, Elbrus 2014

“I share Jon’s attitude that ‘anything is possible’ and, as a fellow dyslexic, know that those with challenges and barriers to overcome are often some of the most successful people in life. Jon was with me on my recent trek up Mount Kilimanjaro and I’m sure he’ll show the same hunger and determination on his next expeditions– good luck, you can do it!”

Duncan Bannatyne (Dragons Den Star) – Kilimanjaro 2012

“Jon’s professionalism, patience and encouragement made Island Peak a reality for me and his excellent company also made this an all-round enjoyable experience”

Lee Godden – Island Peak 2012

“In terms of professionalism Jon is a pure professional with mountain skills, business skills, respect and passion for what he does but also, oh my, what fun we had (type 2 fun tho eh Jon?) and memories created by Jon, Joel and Olly will stay with me and our team forever”

Linda Wales – 3 Peaks Challenge 2014

“You have the rare ability to balance, a childish (meant in a positive way!) excitement and enthusiasm about a trip you’ve done so many times, and at the same time show excellent leadership when required. Would definitely climb Ama again or join you on another mountain”

Karin Moe Bojsen – Ama Dablam 2014

Member stories

Many of our team members have been on several expeditions with us – a few have done everything we offer! In many cases members have become good friends and having them return with us for more mountain adventures has been a pleasure.

Jon Craig – From Zero to Ama Dablam in 3 years.

“Having been on many of Jon Gupta’s trips I can honestly recommend Mountain Expeditions for your bespoke mountain adventure. Jon himself inspires confidence in his clients and he leads his trips with precision. He is passionate about the outdoors and qualified to match.

Jon lives and breaths mountains and it’s infectious. 3 years ago I trekked the mighty Kilimanjaro and it didn’t stop there; having since summited both Elbrus in Russia and Island Peak in the Nepalese Himalaya under his supervision. There’s also countless national challenges and Scottish winters that saw a novice through to becoming an accomplished mountaineer who’s CV peaked with the accomplishment of the majestic Ama Dablam in 2013.

If you want a guide who is well informed, approachable, safe and experienced then you should probably sign up to a highly enjoyable expedition or 3. There’s a reason why many of Jon’s clients often return for their next adventure so book in for your first and start creating those precious memories, friendships and experiences.”
