    Mungo Ross

    Kind | Cheeky | Adventurous


    Mini Bio

    Having had the most extraordinary good fortune and privilege to travel on adventures and lead expeditions to all seven continents, allowing me to become more familiar with the Khumbu Valley in Nepal than the Lairig Ghru in the Cairngorms, I am still as passionate as ever to share my enthusiasm for my home country, Scotland.

    Whether travelling on skis or snowboard; by kayak, canoe, raft, boat or windsurfer; shod in rock-shoes or snow-shoes or equipped with ice axe and crampons – whether out on my own, with friends, or leading and teaching others, I am still often not able to tell the difference between days of work or play.

    Places to play

    The Khumbu Valley, or anywhere in Bonnie Scotland.

    Not many people know this

    I was President of the school Poetry Club and Gardening Club when I was 11 years old (perhaps an early indication of my destiny towards roles of influence and responsibility?!).

    I’ve led groups all across Scotland, into the Himalaya, and across 4 continents both while self employed and for companies ranging from Jagged Globe to Ratho National Climbing Centre.

    Too many to remember one in particular! Surviving some days on the hill in Scottish Winter have been as hard as surviving a month on a 6 or 7 thousand meter mountain.

    Our guide Mungo was on it! Great job, he kept us safe and allowed us to really experience some challenging conditions on the trail. He provided information as we went along pointing out all kinds of interesting bits. Mungo had a great attitude and made the trip for us!

    I really liked our guide. See prior comments. Needs to speak a little louder.

    Already commented about Lawrence. Hikes were well planned and for me just the right amount of hiking.

    Make Trip Private

    Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

    We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
